Fontestad signs a collaboration agreement with Fitogar-Ioland

Fontestad is a well-known and respected family business in the handling and distribution of the citrus sector. Their priority objectives are quality, sustainability, and customer service. The company has an area of 900 hectares.

"Fontestad is strongly committed to sustainability in all of its processes, starting with its farms. That's why we have signed an agreement with Fitogar-Ioland," stated Vicente Fontestad Gil, vice president of Fontestad Citrus, s.l.

Ioland was born as a technological brand of the Fitogar Group. It has more than 50 years of experience and its mission is to innovate in agricultural management and bring profitability to agriculture.

The company currently uses different Ioland technology such as:

Agroclimatic irrigation control stations to measure humidity, temperature, and conductivity throughout the soil profile, as well as ambient temperature, and relative humidity.
SOLUT-ION, the first device that allows measuring nutrients directly from the soil in real-time to control what plants absorb, and thus avoid contaminating aquifers.

These tools and the experience and joint work of the technical teams of Fitogar-Ioland and Fontestad have allowed us to achieve excellent results to date. Our plantations are in optimal conditions and we have achieved a 31% reduction of water, electricity, and fertilizer use," stated Camilo Garces Tordera, CEO of Fitogar-Ioland.
