Fargro Ltd, a wholesaler and supplier of commercial horticultural products has announced a partnership with Hortec Ltd that enables the provision of industry leading and bespoke automation to UK growers.
Hortec is a well-established specialist supplier of automation to the horticulture industry, providing potting machinery, tray automation, soil handling systems, transport systems, robots, trimming machines and conveyors for more than 30 years.
