Agrikol offers service of montage which includes following operations: preparation of materials, leveling of soil.
One of the most interesting project, on which company is working is in Brasil. The greenhouse is nearing completion.
The company Fonte Verde Agro started research in 2015 into a high-tech tomato production location in Brazil. The company is located in Andradas, the southern region of Minas Gerais. Currently, 2 hectares are being built, of which more than 1.5 are for the production of tasty tomatoes. The company is built and furnished according to Dutch standards and techniques. Fonte Verde Agro can eventually expand to more than 12 hectares at its location in Minas Gerais. By using modern technology, Fonte Verde Agro will make a positive contribution to food security and quality requirements, which are increasingly expected by Brazilian consumers.
We asked our client Mr. Arjan Kouwenhoven about this project and plans for the future.
Q: What attracted you to start production in Brasil?
Arjan: The market is quit big and I think that we, with Dutch technologies, can offer a continuously good quality.
Q: What makes your company sustainable?
Arjan: We are going to use high tech equipment to supply and re-use water, that will give us a lower use off water per kg tomato,
In open field you need 60 liter water per kg tomatoes, we are gone use 12 liter per kg.
Q: Do you plan to expand production to some other crop besides tomatoes?
Arjan: Let us first start with tomatoes and see how this goes, and grows, in these circumstances.
