The company

Our client is an international investor who owns a pepper plantation in Kampot, Cambodia. Spanning 30 hectares, this plantation stands out for cultivating high-quality pepper, globally recognized with the Kampot Pepper Designation of Origin.

The client’s goal was to implement a comprehensive irrigation, nutrition, and filtration solution that met the high-quality standards of the product and enabled exports to Asian, European, and North American markets.

The challenge

The main challenge was to address the different nutritional needs of the various crops on the plantation, primarily black pepper but also banana cultivation (in an intercropping system) with limited fertilization time.

Additionally, labor was required, but the existing workforce in the area had little qualification and no prior experience in the sector, adding complexity to the project.

The solution

To tackle this challenge, the decision was made to implement the AZUD QGROW BS technology, a fertilizer injection system that allows intuitive and simple dosing of multiple fertilizers simultaneously.

This solution proved ideal for the available workforce on the plantation with its low qualification.

The AZUD QGROW BS equipment features 5 injection lines, enabling easy manual operation and facilitating the learning process for the operators.

Benefits of the solution

The implementation of this technological solution brought numerous benefits:

  1. Ease of learning: Thanks to the simplicity and user-friendly nature of the AZUD QGROW BS equipment, the plantation operators were able to quickly acquire the necessary knowledge for its efficient operation.
  2. Time savings: By being able to inject multiple fertilizers simultaneously, significant time reduction was achieved in the fertilization process. This optimization allowed for increased efficiency in the utilization of available resources on the plantation.
  3. Precise dosing: The AZUD QGROW BS technology ensured accurate dosing of fertilizers, guaranteeing that each crop received the necessary nutrients for optimal development. A specific injection line was included for the pepper crop, which required a particular fertilizer, enabling adaptation to the specific needs of each crop.
  4. Flexibility in crop changes: Thanks to the versatility of the injection system, switching fertilizer recipes between different crops became easy and fast. This facilitated an efficient transition between different crop cycles, maximizing results in each case.
