FROM SMART COTTON FIELDS…
Water usage is one of the pressing issues in cotton production. Varvaressos uses Israeli ultimate technologies and expertise in water management and has customized a sustainable technology that allows reducing water consumption up to 40%. Thanks to the advanced drip irrigation system, plants are watered and fed without wasting a single drop. Thanks to a custom-developed app connected via satellite and meteorological stations in selected cotton fields, farmers can monitor the fields in real time. The IoT – Internet of Things system warns them to take action to ensure plants to flourish healthily and high a higher yield in a sustainable way.
Another critical issue of cotton production is GMO. All the farmers and producers are carefully selected to guarantee the highest GMO-free quality as well as the most sustainable standards in line with EU strict regulations.
