Reducing water consumption through smart technologies
The availability of good drinking water will become even more important in the future. For Agro Care, this is a reason to be very careful with it. Smart technology helps. Computer-controlled cultivation with the plant in a substrate mat makes it possible to dose the exact amount of water and nutrition. What is not used does not go to waste: recirculation ensures that water and fertilisers remain in the production process. For example, on average, we need 75 percent less water to produce a kilo of tomatoes compared to traditional growers in Southern Europe and North Africa. Tunisia also requires 75% less water. In addition, in that country, we opt for geothermal water, which means we don't use water that the population needs.
