Agriculture in Spain has been a very important sector until the 1960s. Until then, Agriculture was a fundamental support in the Spanish economy. Its evolution has been patent and gone are the use of animals for tilling the soil, and the wheels and ditches to water them.
Spain’s entry into the EU in 1985 brought with it new measures and opportunities, among which the application of the Common Agricultural Policy and access to European funds, internationalization or a new environmental and quality policy stand out.
In 1998 the first crop of transgenic corn was created, adding new hectares each year, as well as new types of agriculture such as conservation or organic. All this makes Spanish agriculture a quality, productive and internationally competitive sector.
The main crops in Spain are olive, barley, wheat, beet, corn, potatoes, rye, oats, rice, tomatoes and onion.
Also, Spain is known internationally for its extensive vineyards and citrus and olive groves.
Rainfed agriculture stands out in much of Spain, adapting to weather conditions. Therefore, irrigation systems are part of the most productive areas of Spain, thus promoting increased production in the agricultural sector.
Climate and solar radiation is another notable factors in Spanish agriculture. For this reason, it is very common to find large areas of crops in greenhouses.
A good example is found in the province of Almería, where the largest extension of greenhouses in the world is located. Due to the enormous production of fruit and vegetable products, Almería receives the title of “Garden of Europe”.
Currently agriculture is an essential export factor to other countries, being the first in world production of olives (9.8 million tons) second in the production of mandarins, persimmons and almonds and fourth in grape production.
Arriving of technology in the agriculture
Many of the farmers who manage large farms use GPS technologies, sensors, satellites and aerial images together with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Its purpose is based on trying to perform field work as accurately as possible.
However, the basics and essentials still prevail. Proof of this is evidenced by the extended use of wire.
Frequent uses of steel wire in agriculture
There’s a wide variety of wire uses in the agriculture sector.
The steel wire is mostly used for the care of the crops and the greenhouses. Therefore our wire rolls have different functions.
The steel cords we manufacture offer a proven warranty. Due to its strength and resistance, the steel cords fulfil their objective in crops and plants.
The goal of our steel wire factory is focused on the customer satisfaction.
For this we have a great variety in all types of wires such as:
Our expert and qualified workers, in addition to producing any type of steel wire, they have also contributed to carrying out a rigorous testing and evaluation process.
In this way, we guarantee that each product meets the highest quality standards in order to meet and exceed the expectations of each client.
At Andaluza de Trefileria y Galvanizado, we have a wide variety of wire coils of different thicknesses, sizes, weights and materials.
Olive groves and vineyards
In olive groves and vineyards, wire is essential. Its use is extended to make profitable, maximize and protect the productions in these farms. The type of wire used is galvanized oval steel wire, as well as steel wire for its durability, corrosion resistance and anti-hail protection characteristics. The wire for agricultural use guarantees the farmer its high production and perfect harvest in olive groves and vineyards.
In olive groves, galvanized steel wire is used as stakes in trellises for intensive and super-intensive cultivation, being tensioned with tensioners.
In the vineyard, its use extends to vineyards, trellises, tensioners, joints and Urzinal wire (ZnAL).
Galvanized steel rod is a highly recommended material for these uses.
Its external zinc coating offers great resistance to corrosion due to exposure to moisture, water, fertilizers and insecticides.
The base metal used for this type of steel rod is made of hard steel ensuring sufficient rigidity for the plant to grow olive or vine.
Hail Protection for Fruit Trees
Protecting your fruit trees against inclement weather is protecting your investment. Hail, as well as sunburn, directly affects the results of your production. Protective nets in kiwi, hop, apple and cherry facilities will naturally protect your fruit trees. Inside the facilities, steel wires are used to mesh and support the structure, protecting the trees from hailstorms.
Zinc-coated carbon steel or stainless steel wires are recommended for tie wires. Its manufacture guarantees the necessary resistance and hardness of tension and load weight. To prevent the wire from rusting and deteriorating, this product is anti-corrosive.
Sold in rolls of wire, protection is guaranteed against the weather or hail, protecting plants, trees or crops.
Choose according to your needs galvanized steel cord, plasticized cord, mild steel wire, or high-strength zinc-aluminum wires, and more.… According to their properties, they can be used to withstand heat, snow and corrosion.
The use of reinforced galvanized wire or triple galvanized wire, due to its tenacity. Easily moldable, this wire absorbs all kinds of manipulation without breaking. Our galvanized steel can also be used for structures, staples, tensioners, rod, etc.
Completing this structure shadow mesh or mesh parral provides the necessary air conditioning to achieve the objective of the plentiful harvest. Its use stands out in the crops of strawberries, watermelons, melons and any type of vegetable or vegetable, shade mesh or vine mesh.
At Andaluza de Trefileria y Galvanizado we protect your production through the best products for greenhouse structures.
Mooring, packaging and agricultural transport
Wire plays an important role in the packaging and transfer of agricultural products. The wire tie system mainly uses annealed wire for bundling the straw.
Steel rods for packing with quick closing are indispensable in this process, as well as being an economical and effective solution for all types of agricultural operations. The quick knot or quick link system facilitates packing.
The roll of baling wire is one of the most used for this purpose, adapting perfectly to bale and bale packing machines and supporting large loads. Other wires that give very good results are the annealed wires and ringed wires for the transport of the cork.
The assembly by means of wiring in wooden boxes to transport vegetables and fish is essential to guarantee that the products arrive in good condition for their subsequent sale and marketing. For this, gray wire is also used.
However, for wrapping the straw, annealed wrapping wire is used in rolls, the most used material for this purpose being low carbon steel and high carbon steel as they are more resistant (made of hard wire).
When sodium chloride is present as in the case of fish transport, galvanized wire is considered the best option due to its protection of its anticorrosive outer zinc layer.
As wire manufacturers in Spain, at Andaluza de Trefileria y Galvanizado we have a wide variety of wires. Depending on its use and exposure, we will advise you to select the appropriate agricultural wire for your needs.
