I knew you were an irrigation company, but didn’t know you were also a commercial greenhouse project company?
20 years ago we started to work with the farmers that adopted our drip irrigation systems – helping them to evolve and expand into new ways of cultivation, new crops and new technologies. Today you can find our drip irrigation products in two-thirds of all the advanced commercial greenhouses in the world, and we utilise this know-how and experience to support full commercial greenhouse projects from ideation to success. We’ve developed commercial greenhouse projects in all 5 continents, supporting our clients through our 33 business units on the ground.
What are the advantages of greenhouses – why not open fields?
There are so many advantages to greenhouses, particularly when you consider the growing population and our need to grow more food to ensure food security. Greenhouses reduce the outer influences and therefore the risks. Greenhouses also optimize crop production by providing crops with the best conditions for growing, regardless of the climate and season, all year-round – increasing yield per square meter, while also optimizing the use of our natural resources such as water.
What’s more, greenhouses also mean enabling food to grow closer to cities in a way that’s safer, cleaner, fresher and with fewer pesticides.
What project management models do you provide?
We match our project management model to your specific requirements. We can operate a supply & supervision model, or an EPC/turnkey model. Both can include your master plan, design, equipment supply, civil works and construction.
Do you provide operation and management services (O&M)?
Yes. If you require O&M services, we can provide after-sale local agronomic support and farm management for one growing season, or more.
Do you manage all contractors?
Yes. As a company the size of Netafim we have most of the technical expertise you need in-house. However, we also have the ability to bring in the best in the world, if a specialist contractor is required. Whoever we bring in, we manage, so the only team you have to interface with is Netafim.
Do you also help with financing?
Yes, we are able to help you organise a financing solution for your commercial greenhouse project. With our subsidiaries in over 33 countries, we’re often able to provide more varied financing options than others in the greenhouse industry. This could even include financing solutions that don’t require you to start paying instalments until your greenhouse is up and running. Read more on our greenhouse financing
