With an eye on expanding business in the US cut flower market, NaanDanJain Irrigation - a global producer and provider of tailor-made irrigation solutions - answered a call by Danzinger Flower Farm -a breeder of bedding plants and cut flowers - to help set up a 110-dunam greenhouse project in Guatemala.
The company designed the entire project in Israel. According to Yoav, all parts of the water and irrigation system were shipped from Israel and installed in Guatemala, under the supervision of the Israeli firm. The Israeli team can monitor water systems in the greenhouses through computers from anywhere in the world.
Part of the project required digging a well to transfer water to a reservoir and then to a treatment tank, which includes filtration and chlorination of the water. Moreover, Yoav says the Israeli company meets the high level of sanitation as prescribed by customers in the United States with its chlorine and soap flushing system and sterile areas.
The company set up a weather station to control temperature and humidity in the greenhouses in order to achieve a high quality production level. The project started out with six greenhouses. Two additional greenhouses were added in the second stage. And, according to Yoav, “this year, we are completing the final greenhouses. Altogether 14 greenhouses will be built.”
In conclusion, Yoav says Danziger has been wholly satisfied with the results, especially due to NaanDanJain’s unique climate control, irrigation and fertilization solution that is concentrated under one strict control system.
