Birds in the Ica desert
In 2007, the book "Birds in the Ica desert, the Agrokasa experience" was published, a document that compiles the results of observations of various bird species in the Ica farms, with a technical analysis of their evolution and trends.
Among the main scopes we have the following: The practice of falconry as a method of biological control through the use of hawks, who discourage predatory birds from crops such as grapes with a high degree of efficiency; the preparation of an inventory of bird species that inhabit the La Catalina and Santa Rita farms, as well as the development of synergies between business and scientific activity.
Efficiency And Sustainability Of Water Use
Best Water Saving Techniques
Our operations have a drip irrigation system, which allows for better efficiency in the use and exploitation of this water resource, in addition, it guarantees that the application of water to the plants is optimal in quantity and timing. Our piped irrigation systems prevent losses due to evaporation and infiltration.
Wastewater treatment plant (PTAR)
Surface Water Use
Surface water is collected and then goes through a complete treatment system that begins with: flocculation and coagulation, to remove a large part of the impurities; followed by sedimentation lagoons, to remove the sand; and finally through the gravel filters, before entering the fields. Disinfection with hydrogen peroxide serves to protect the water against microorganisms and contaminants that could enter through the pipes. It is worth mentioning that the availability of surface water depends on the seasonality in each of the venues.
