Steiner: a showcase for sustainability in the vegetable sector

In 2014, the Austrian family-owned company Steiner started growing high-quality produce in Kirchweidach in Bavaria in an entirely sustainable manner. They constructed a greenhouse complex covering 11.8 hectares, in which different varieties of tomatoes and peppers are grown for the local market. Their fresh produce is only available in supermarkets in Bavaria. In 2016, Steiner added a further 7.8 hectares in record time and last year also constructed another 6 hectares for the organic cultivation of cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes. Since Steiner wants to use every drop of water, they opted for a completely closed irrigation system. Codema designed, developed and installed an irrigation system in which all the water is recirculated. In addition, Codema made sure that all of Steiner’s greenhouse systems are seamlessly connected to each other.
