The Irritec group is pleased to announce a new branch in Peru, to develop and consolidate its presence in a strategic market like South America where Irritec is already present with branches in Brazil, Mexico, Chile and now in Peru.
Irritec Peru has been created with the aim of offering clients an even more complete and efficient service, guaranteeing assistance during the installation and after-sales phases thanks to a more widespread distribution capacity. Furthermore, through the training centre Irritec Academy, Irritec offers small farmers the opportunity to participate in on-site courses and training to gain further knowledge in the field of precision irrigation.
Irritec Peru will help support local agriculture, offering an even more integrated service and promoting the use of drip irrigation and fertigation systems in one of the world’s most agricultural regions. Indeed, Latin America and the Caribbean accounts for 14% of global food production and 45% of net international agri-food trade, with almost 50% of employment (FAO, April 2021). Therefore, high agricultural productivity requires the adoption of sustainable agri-food systems that can guarantee the preservation of biodiversity, greater water efficiency and more equity for small farmers and indigenous peoples.
