Shipments of Panamanian Ferns to Japan Increase

Using a new technique, American Flower Shippers Company succeeded in increasing its exports by 12% in 2008.

Monday, May 4, 2009

To encourage crop development, a technology that enables the creation of microclimates is used.

Prensa.com reported statements by Arnoldo Víquez, general manager of American Flower Shippers (AFS): "The microclimate that we generate in the summer works with two sheets of zaram (plastic,) one with 55% shade and the other with 30% shade. In the winter, the sheet is removed and a plastic cover is installed to control the water that arrives to the plantation. An artificial spring is generated in this manner."
Additionally, “an efficient control of plagues caused by fungi or bacteria in the winter is achieved and there is a spring-like environment all year round."
