Water is one of the main resources for agriculture and fruit and vegetable industry, its correct and efficient use is vital for each process; from soil preparation to fruit harvest.
A year ago this main element was scarce in the world. Therefore, the agricultural industry currently faces various challenges to increase the efficient use of water resources in all sectors and to provide solutions, innovation and technology for the management and preservation of water in agriculture.
In this scenario, the Chilean company, Soprocal, ranks as one of the leaders in innovation in soils and efficiency in the use of water.

Soprocal products have an organic registration and visa, that is, they are supplies for organic exporters.
Products and Services: Effective solutions
So that the water can be absorbed in the soils (regardless of its PH and texture) it is necessary to have products that allow the particles to gather and rearrange in such a way that the water re-penetrates. The roots of the plant have oxygen again, their pores open and the soil becomes heterogeneous, so that the fruit trees grow.
To achieve the above, Soprocal delivers products of excellence and innovation, which provide effective solutions and increase efficiency in crops in Chile.
