Following Netafim’s acquisition of Dutch turnkey greenhouse projects provider Gakon in March, the EIMA event will be the first time Gakon-Netafim will be publicly showcasing its joint offerings and expertise. On the first day of the event, Gakon-Netafim will conduct a presentation titled “A Winning Solution for the Greenhouse Market,” covering the integration of Netafim and Gakon’s more than half a century’s experience in precision agriculture and greenhouse innovation.
“Given our purpose of growing more with less and our mission to help farmers worldwide produce better, higher yielding crops, we are especially thrilled to enhance our in-house greenhouse offering and capabilities with the inclusion of Gakon,” said Gaby Miodownik, CEO and President of Netafim. “As the pandemic rages on and climate change concerns show no signs of lessening, global demand for fresh, healthy and safe local food production has never been more crucial. Through the inclusion of Gakon’s expertise and capabilities in the greenhouse arena, Netafim is now better prepared to help ensure a steady and more secure food growing solution.”
