Agriculture and Horticulture
The cultivation of animals and plants delivers fuel, food and drink and is essential for sustaining life.
The industry has developed somewhat over that time, from mostly manual work to largely automated, with large farming machinery such harvesters and complete irrigation systems.
The automation of the industry has allowed farmers to provide increased supply at a lower price, however globalisation has allowed for supplies to be shipped from all over the world, increasing marketplace competition and the pressure on growers.
ERIKS Automation has developed several unique applications for this industry, from automated teat cleaners for milk producers to automated roof control for greenhouses for flower growers. Our solutions deliver competitive advantage to reduce pressures and increase profitability.
