AQUA4D is an electromagnetic water treatment technology that facilitates a better dissolution and distribution of minerals, promotes water retention in the soil and allows for absorption of minerals by the plants. AQUA4D also increases the natural resistance of plants against diseases, avoids nematode attacks in roots and prevents clogging and biofilm in pipes. What is more: AQUA4D brings all these advantages without changing the chemical composition of the water, it does not use any chemicals, it does not create any by-products, it consumes very little energy (can be powered with a small solar panel) and it does not require any maintenance. The overall result is an increase up to 20% in the production yield, using up to 25% less water, with a fast return on investment (payback between 6 and 24 months).

“Cheaper Agrícola” by Dr Calderon Labs
The agricultural CHEAPER is a device designed for the injection of nutrients into an irrigation system. Its main characteristics make it a simple system, free of maintenance, with low energy consumption, adaptable practically to any irrigation system. Its operation is based on the theory of “Oriffice Meter”, according to which, the amount of fluid passing through a hole is directly proportional to the square root of the differential pressure upstream and downstream of the orifice.
In irrigation systems, a suction line depression (NPSH) is usually generated. This depression is used by the agricultural cheaper to introduce nutrients in the form of a concentrated solution in the irrigation line. As you want the depression generated in the suction line depends, among other variables, on the flow delivered by the pump, equally the flow sucked by the cheaper, depends on the depression generated in the suction line, so the relationship between these two variables can be kept relatively constant within a wide range of flows.
This system has been successfully tested in some strawberry farms in Colombia including one of 10 hectares (Santa Maria strawberries) in hydroponic cultivation in rice husk substrate and coal slag in mixture 70/30 for more than 10 years.

Nutrient use efficiency by Nutricontrol S.L.
We are a Spanish company that is a market leader in climate control and irrigation automation for greenhouses and outdoor facilities, with over 40 years experience in technological research and development in the industry. Our primary goal is to enable producers to maximise the yield of their crops with the minimum personal effort. To achieve this we focus our efforts on the research and development of software and hardware specifically designed to control irrigation, fertigation and climate conditions.
Nutricontrol climate control systems are specifically designed to generate the optimum climatic conditions inside your greenhouse. The equipment reads the information it receives from the sensors and responds by entirely automatically operating the actuators inside the greenhouse, such as the windows. EWater is a key element in every agricultural facility. A lack of or excess water and its condition are factors that may adversely affect your yield and compromise the quality of your crop. Nutricontrol offers you a full range of products allowing you to take complete control over your landscape and to manage your irrigation effectively.

Paper belt filter and Poseidon by Van der Ende groep
Van der Ende groep will showcase the Poseidon Sodium Extractor, which won the FERTINNOWA innovation award in 2017. The Poseidon is developed specially for growers who sluice off water to discharge sodium: a system that extracts sodium from drainage water with a maximum retention of nutrients. The Poseidon complies combines membrane filter technology and activated carbon. The water treatment system can optionally be expanded with a reverse osmosis system to concentrate the water to be discharged and, in doing so, reducing it by 80%. The greatest benefits of the Poseidon are: decreases the sodium content in the drain silo, unique retention of nutrients, 50% nutrient savings, 80% water savings, no pollution of the environment, easy to install, low operational costs due to low energy consumption, low maintenance and more than 95% rejection of crop protection products.
The paper belt filters can be used for various liquid flows in your greenhouse. Moor Filtertechniek supplies a specially selected line of products for greenhouse and other horticultural uses, divided into belt filters for low-flow (3 to 15 m3/h) and high-flow (15 to 100 m3/h) use. Moor Filtertechniek’s paper belt filters are compact stainless-steel (304) models, complete with stainless-steel reservoir, pumps and switch box. A belt filter is suitable for various purposes, such as: discharge water from a sand filter, filtration of drain water, filtration of basin water, filtration of water from flood and drain (hydroponic) systems, pre-filtration for UV filters.
VISUAL 4.0 by VISUALNACERT, S.L.
VISUAL 4.0 is an agricultural information management system with geolocation of the farms of the producers and agronomic management, it is based on an interactive map system and a continuous intelligent analysis of geo-referenced data. Among the most innovative aspects of VISUAL are:
- Automatic geolocation of fields.
- Calculation of occupied surface and SIGPAC references.
- Agronomic management: Records and creates automatically a log of the activities and treatments that have been carried in each field.
- Phytosanitary information: shows the phytosanitary products that can be used in crops for the pest or disease detected, containing the updated list of phytosanitary products authorized by the Ministry.
- Satellite images and drones: With VISUAL you can monitor the vigour of the crop every 15 days, follow the evolution of the plots by consulting the most current satellite images and the maps of NDVI or water stress. This allows you to detect plants or areas of low vigour or productivity and as well as to make prescriptions improve irrigation efficiency. You always have the history of the last year to see the evolution of the field.
- Sensors: Performing the monitoring of soil moisture content allows better irrigation management. The optimisation of the irrigation allows applying the irrigation appropriately and in suitable quantities to conserve the water resources, increase the quality of the crops and the profitability of the fields.
- VISUAL SENSORS: VISUAL sensors are CAPACITIVE SENSORS. Sensors that measure the dielectric constant of the soil. They are based on the fact that the dielectric constant of the soil undergoes important changes with the introduction of water in the ground.
- Online / offline work.
- Advanced agroclimatics.
Wise solutions include a survey of the soil and the environment of the crop, the installation of a variety of sensors to control the irrigation, nutrition and climatic variables and a training process for the farmer.
- We analyze the soil characteristics for determining it’s “working range” and provide a reference frame to obtain the meaning of the sensors values
- We measure by sensors a variety of variables
- We train the farmer for the correct interpretation and implementation during the first few months
