Green and water spray for defence against the summer heat

Plants offer various “ecosystem” services, including natural defense against high temperatures, especially in summer. Through the plants’ evapotranspiration, the water contained in the soil is vaporized into the air producing more coolness. At the same time, particular interest is raised by the so-called “air factory”, a sort of glass greenhouse structured to draw air from outside and return it purified and refreshed after contact with the plant essences contained in the greenhouses

Mulching with plastic film for enhanced crop management

Widely adopted for some time now, mulching is an excellent solution to reduce production inputs, also managing to increase yield. The mechanical industry produces seed drills that can be equipped to spread the mulching film simultaneously.

Today, the market offers a wide variety of platforms, which meet the needs of different crops and types of farms. The use of innovative materials, electronic control systems, and advanced design techniques have made this type of equipment increasingly safe
