UNRIVALLED CROP QUALITY
Getting Light, Right
Our Lumisol range benefits from the ongoing input of Berry bpi agriculture’s global research partners, working at different latitudes and in various climates around the world – from northern Europe to the Mediterranean basin and Australasia.
We manufacture our plastic films using our 7 layer smartstructure technology meaning the raw materials can be inserted with greater precision. This means that the dedicated film layers can enhance thermic, optic and strength attributes.
This precision control accentuates individual film features and enables bespoke film production for specific crops, climates or applications.
- Extended harvesting seasons
- Hardier crops
- Unrivalled crop quality
- Improved control of economically important pests and diseases
- Temperature control
- Anti-fog properties
