Innovations in the spotlight
HASPARGIT, circular fertiliser with especially positive impact on CO2
HASPARGIT is an innovative fertiliser for arable farming, which is mainly used in the cultivation of potatoes, vegetables and beets. The innovation lies in this: Haspargit saves the energy required to produce a tradional fertiliser. , Haspargit is indeed not a classic fertiliser but a circular product produced with residual flows from the food industry.
1.2 billion litres of water saved with the Mobile Gully System (MGS)
Today, with our 60 ha of MGS, we save no less than 1.2 billion litres of water worldwide compared to traditonal cultivation. The Mobile Gully System (MGS) recycles the maximum of water, namely 90%, the remaining 10% is absorbed by the plant. Thanks to the Nutrient Film Technique, all plants receive exactly the nutrition they need. MGS is therefore a perfect example of a successful marriage between high-end technology and horticulture!
Sustainable precision technology on the tractor
Precision agriculture technology today includes a super-precise (down to 2 cm) GPS system, a self-steering system for agricultural vehicles, section control of seeders, fertiliser spreaders and field sprayers, and site-specific crop monitoring and yield measurement. In the future, data - yield measurements, positioning, machine data ... - will help further refine agriculture.
