An agricultural company increases its cherry production in the most dificult year

The company reaches 14% production increase despite the challenges of the current situation

The difficulties and new actual challenges due to the expansion of coronavirus have not been able to overcome The Looije SL Producers Organization that has closed the year 2020 with a 14% turn over growth.

The agricultural company from Águilas (Murcia, Spain) is specialized in marketing of cherry tomatoes and has maintained its progressive line during the last 5 years.

“We are proud to see that our work and determined commitment to quality and innovation is now rewarded by consumers,” said Juan José López, CEO of O.P. Looije, regarding the improvements that high-tech investments in recent years have brought to the entire production process. This is the case of the new Looije Aguilas greenhouse, a project in collaboration with Novagric, company specialized in the industrial development of integrated projects for high-yield sustainable agriculture, where the performance of these technological greenhouses facilities has resulted in a significant increase in productivity.

The greenhouse installed by Novagric for the company Looije is fully technologically equipped for cherry tomato production. It is a turn-key project with an area of 51,280 m2 with double . cenital and perimeter ventilation, designed to optimize the maximum solar radiation inlet. To do this, possible obstacles to the passage of light have been minimized with other techniques that ensure stability and the arches of the greenhouse have been white lacquered with a higher opening to optimize the inlet of solar radiation. The irrigation system used is hydroponic with gutters suspended from the greenhouse structure itself.

Novagric is committed to the technological, sustainable and cost-effective development of agriculture, and for this purpose has expanded its facilities to offer the best service to agricultural organizations and have a great response capacity to take on all kinds of national and international projects.

«Thanks to the new innovation and showroom center installed in Alhama (Murcia, Spain) allows us to test all new technological developments to ensure effectiveness in crop profitability and productivity. » explains Juan Pardo, head of the technical department of NOVAGRIC. «These are the main reasons why companies like Looije bet on developing the project with us obtaining great results, together with our great competitive advantages, which is to offer a complete project from design, manufacture, assembly, installation to agronomic advice to make everything easier for our customers. »
