Agritek has various areas of expertise, such as building greenhouses and making profitable farming feasible even in the desert ecosystem, says Mr. Nehayet Rasoul, Chief Operating Officer of Agritek: “We provide complete agriculture solutions to help farms develop more sustainable agricultural practices with agricultural products from trustworthy multinational suppliers. From start to finish, Agritek delivers smart agricultural solutions and innovations, from farm to table. Whatever the client’s needs are, we have a process to help their farm become more sustainable and profitable.”
“We can help by building greenhouses and green glass structures, setting up the best irrigation system that optimizes water use efficiency with our partner Netafim (Israel) and providing climate-controlled system to manage the temperature, humidity, lighting, and nutrients in partnership with Hoogendoorn (The Netherlands). We also supply high quality fertilizers and other agricultural inputs from the reliable partners internationally such as Deretil (Spain), Agafert (Italy), Cronus Seeds (Spain), Van Iperen (The Netherlands), Koppert (The Netherlands), Kekkila BVB (The Netherlands) and Riococo (Sri Lanka). Further, we are providing consultancy and training to farmers.”
A big goal of the company is to reduce costs for its clients, Mr. Rasoul explains. “To lower costs for our clients we combine shipments from the same supplier and deliver to various clients and farmers. We use the best technology for climate and irrigation systems that saves around 30% of water and energy usage. We also use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) such as live bumble bees for efficient pollination to increase the production of high-quality produce, especially UAE region has very high temperatures, an unfavourable condition. Beneficial insects reduce the extensive use of pesticides and avoid chemical residues in the produce that could lead to fruits may be rejected or seen as wastage. The result is supplying high quality and low costs agrochemical inputs from competent manufacturers.”
While having started the business locally in the Emirates, Agritek has been branching out to more and more territories: “We’re based in the United Arab Emirates and passionately working to develop a healthier society and a thriving planet through smarter farming. Our work spans the globe with projects currently in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Uzbekistan, and Oman. Agritek’s goal in the upcoming year is to become one of the leading agricultural companies not only in the UAE but across the world. By achieving this, we are guided by a vision to bring superior solutions and services to the agriculture industry, helping growers to maximise yield from their crops. We use sophisticated technology to help farms and farmers grow better.”
“Agritek believes in the fast-growing development of agriculture in terms of technologies, new development of varieties, both seeds and plants, and techniques that would also uplift the quality demand in the market. Likewise, in maintaining the strong relationship, Agritek is expecting to meet current and new business partners from different countries of the globe during Fruit Attraction.” Mr. Rasoul concludes.
