How to switch to Intelligent Agriculture with Vunkers IoT?

  • Vunkers is a company that offers Internet Services of Things (IoT)
  • Teaching Department promotes research in Vocational Training
  • The company Vunkers bets on the creation of links with vocational training centres

Vunkers IT Experts, with more than 10 years of experience in the telecommunications sector, goes one step further and presents, in this new edition of the Sant Miquel Fair, a new branch of business: Vunkers IoT.

Taking advantage of the Fair event, the company, together with the institutes of Almenar and La Salle de Mollerussa, will present the research, innovation and development project, Agriculture with IoT, thanks to the collaboration agreement that will soon be signed with Teaching Department.

This project will be developed during the academic year in the facilities of the educational centers, as well as in the facilities of the company itself, thanks to the provision of equipment by Vunkers. Highlighting here that students will have at all times a technical advisor who will tutor them.

The aim of this initiative is to promote collaborative work between schools, to bring students closer to the current business reality and to acquire the necessary professional experience so that they are better prepared for the world of work once they have completed their studies.

Vunkers, in addition to a strong commitment to Vocational Training, is the best option for transforming agriculture, as the company has a branch of business, dedicated solely and exclusively to the Internet of things, Vunkers IoT. This division of engineers is constantly working on tailor-made IoT services projects in order to apply the advantages of an innovative, economic and very low-consumption product in the agricultural sector, independent of large operators.

The IoT equipment, developed by Vunkers, has a long autonomy, and among the projects carried out we can highlight an autonomous meteorological station and sun humidity control equipment, for optimization of irrigation with multi-user portal, both for end users and for companies that want to offer these services.

Novafrut is the reference in protection nets

Nova Fruticultura, SL. is known as Novafrut, its registered trademark.

Novafrut is based in Figueres (Girona) and has a warehouse in Mollerussa, in the Vila-Sana industrial estate (Lleida). We have distributors in Aragon, Cantabria, Portugal and Morocco.

With more than 15 years of experience in net protection installations, we have specialised initially in fruit growing but also in other areas such as farms, industries, shops and public spaces.

Where there are structures with nets, Novafrut is there.

Our asset is constant innovation in order to achieve long-lasting, effective installations that require a minimum of annual maintenance.

This is achieved with a very technical team, the use of precision GPS technology and material testing.

The most common installations that Novafrut® carries out throughout Spain are: anti-hail, anti-rain, vine training, climatic for orchards and ornamentals, anti-birds, sports nets, windbreaks, reflective fabrics and everything related to nets.

Our facilities are adapted to the most demanding requirements of each zone: strong winds, important hail, high temperatures, rocky or sandy soils, etc.

Fertirrigation in fruit trees: the importance of Calcium

Nutrition by means of irrigation (fertigation) entails a high demand on the fertilizer. A minimum manipulation in the place of consumption and a high precision in the contributions, are necessary to reduce the maintenance of the systems of irrigation and to increase the efficiency of the fertilizers. The content of Nitrogen in nitric form -immediately available for the plant- and the high content in Calcium are key for the obtaining of a greater production and a greater useful life of the fruits.


Calcium, together with nitrogen and potassium, is the most important macronutrient in stone and seed fruit trees. This nutrient is absorbed through the root apexes in ionic form, and its absorption depends on exogenous factors (water content, pH, degree of aeration, temperature…) and endogenous factors (cell wall, respiration, photosynthesis, transpiration…).

Calcium is transported to leaves and developing fruits through the current of transpiration, via xylem. The transport of calcium to the leaves seems to be more related to the growth rate of the roots than to that of the shoots (Scaife and Clarkson, 1978). During foliar and bud development, the concentration of calcium increases; therefore, large amounts of calcium are needed within the plant to ensure healthy growth.

When the fruit reaches about 50 g, more than 50% of the total amount of calcium it will finally have is already in the fruit. Therefore, it is essential that the contributions of calcium applied via soil are made before this stage; the application of calcium nitrate to the soil in spring increases the yield of the crop and at the same time provides calcium to the fruit improving its firmness. From this stage onwards, fruit sprays should be used until harvesting (mainly in pip fruit trees) to complete the calcium levels (the greater the number of applications, the better the result).

The supply of calcium increases production, fruit size and weight, firmness, colouring and acidity (vitamin C). It also increases TSS and sugar content, taste and juiciness, while reducing “bitter spot”, internal fruit rot and greening, improves resistance to Botrytis cinerea and minimizes fruit pitting.

Marschner (1995) describes that any increase in calcium concentration, however small, helps to prevent or drastically reduce economic losses caused by storage-associated diseases such as Gloesporium rot. On the other hand, Fallahi et al. (1997) states that high concentrations of calcium in fruits increase their post-harvest longevity, slowing down senescence and suppressing the decomposition produced by certain pathogenic microorganisms. In view of these premises, it is important to maintain levels above 5 mg/100 g of fresh weight at harvest time in order to minimise quality problems in storage.
