The Spanish AGRICULTURAL EQUIPMENT has a broad range of soil preparation equipment, manure spraying, seed drills, harvesting, machinery for fruit trees and olive harvesting equipment. There are also several manufacturers of atomizers and spraying equipment.
The Spanish agricultural equipments are characterized by their robustness, with a grade of technology at the same level as the world leading companies. Another attribute of the Spanish farm equipment manufacturers is their great adaptability to customer’s needs, they are able to easily adapt to farmer’s specific requirements. They can produce small series of equipment attending some markets where multinationals are unable to serve due to their inflexible production lines.
Thanks to a long agricultural and livestock tradition and to our strategic international situation, we have contributed to develop a wide range of machinery and equipment easily adaptable to all types of farming.
Let’s talk about IRRIGATION; Water Culture rises from the need of assuring a reasonable and sustainable use of this scarce resource. Therefore, the rational use of water implies an efficient, comprehensive and sustainable management of this so valuable resource we have.
Due to the Spanish orography, the differences in crops and the shortage of water resources, in the last 20 years our country has developed a booming irrigation industry, with a very high technological level and at the forefront of the best world manufacturers. Our industry follows always a clear trend towards the saving of water and energy.
These equipments arise as an answer to the Spanish farmers’ needs that must face not only different types of water, but also different qualities, and must improve the filtration and therefore efficiency in irrigation. Our manufacturers are capable of launching new products that help the nourishment of crops using irrigation as the feeding system for plant nutrition, providing the plant with the exact nutrients it needs.
Definitely, in Spain you will find the most advanced irrigation systems and the possibility of achieving an efficient, comprehensive and sustainable management of the most valued good we have in our planet: WATER.
Regarding GREENHOUSES AND CROP PROTECTION sector, in our country we have the largest concentration in the world of greenhouses; the so called "plastic sea" located in the Southern province of Almería, with 30,000 ha of crop under plastic (60,000 tones).
Intensive agriculture and critical weather conditions, especially in the South of Spain, have propitiated the growth of a range of manufacturers of equipments, crop protection materials and greenhouses, which have learnt to adapt themselves and to create specific products to meet farmers’ needs.
If we bear in mind that Spain is the most developed horticultural market in the world, all these industries have developed as an answer to a thriving industry in our country.
The Spanish manufacturer is known for his continuous innovation and creativity, always looking for answers and creating new products to launch to the market.
About the POST HARVESTING EQUIPMENT, Spain is one of the world largest producers of fresh fruit and it is considered the best expert in fresh fruit and vegetables processing, classifying and preparation. Our main customer is one of the most demanding markets in terms of quality and service: the European Union.
Spain is processing 90% of the total fresh fruit produced within its frontiers; while other countries with higher production, only process 2% of their total production.
Our country has developed a great variety of fresh fruit for consumption and now, many fruit varieties are not seasonal anymore, they are ready to be served at any time of the year at the main European markets.
The Post-harvesting manufacturers have had to adapt themselves to their customers (mainly fresh fruit exporters) since the raw materials used are fresh products. It is one of the industries where our country is a leader. Subsequently the post harvesting machinery companies must get used to work for a very demanding customer, always requiring good presentation and enormous range of products.
Technology is very high within this industry, renovation and improvements in refrigerating systems, fruit manipulation, labelling, storage, traceability and packaging are continuous.
Within the Spanish agricultural sectors, the leader is the LIVESTOCKBREEDING EQUIPMENT. The Spanish laboratories of veterinarian products are one of the leading exporters worldwide thanks to the use of the most advanced technologies in production. Most of these laboratories work under FAMIqs and GMP manufacturing regulations, established by the WHO (World Health Organization) that are closely followed by the EMEA (European Drug Agency for public and animal health).
