Mexican grower Rancho Nexo to trial dissolved CO2 tech

Toronto based CO2 GRO announces its first Mexico project with Marketing Partner Rancho Nexo. A CO2 Delivery Solutions system will be installed for a technology trial at the Bresca Hortalizas S.P.R. de R.L. 4 Ha new greenhouse in the State of Puebla, Mexico.

The Bresca greenhouse was built in 2019 for growing specialty cherry tomatoes. Of particular interest to Bresca in this trial is assessing yield improvement as the climate is too hot for gassing CO2 and assessing the suppression of powdery mildew. The trial will last for at least six months on a 600M2 portion of the high tech greenhouse (6,042 square feet).

According to Aaron Archibald, Vice President Sales and Strategic Alliances "We are delighted to start our first Mexico greenhouse project with our Mexico Marketing Partner Rancho Nexo. The vast majority of Mexico's 6 billion square foot protected ag facilities cannot economically use CO2 gassing but they can use our technology to deliver CO2 in mist form for enriching their plant growth while suppressing micro-pathogens."
