AGRICOLA 2000 S.r.l. has produced crop substrates for floriculture and gardening for 20 years. Its headquarters is located in Pitigliano (GR), a part of Italy unique for its inert volcanic deposits, including PUMICE, LAPILLI and
ZEOLITE, essential for the production of crop substrates.
The idea behind AGRICOLA 2000 was to exploit this favourable position, drawing
from nearby pumice, lapilli and zeolite deposits with unique characteristics, such as the “Pian di Valle” quarry in Pitigliano.
All products in the HUMUSUN line are primarily made up of PUMICE and INERT VULCANIC MATERIALS.
The specific physical characteristics of the substrates, including high porosity and water retention, are calibrated by varying the grain size of the pumice and inert volcanic material, as well as the peat used, thus creating optimum conditions for roots and growth, depending on the plant and the size of the growing vessel.
Today, AGRICOLA 2000 operates on an area of 35,000m2 with two packing and palletizing systems for 10-20- 50-80 litre plastic bags on wrap-around platforms for a production of about 1,300 bags per hour, as well as packag systems for BIG BAGS (bags in various sizes from 2.5 to 3.0 cubic metres) and mixing and loading systems for LOOSE materials.
