Eurodrip USA CEO Announcement
Eurodrip USA is excited to announce the appointment of Trevor Thorley as CEO of Eurodrip USA. Trevor brings with him a strong agribusiness track record.
After 20 years with Bayer CropScience, he joined Valent US Corporation (the US agriculture subsidiary of Sumitomo) to serve for 7 years as their President for the North & South American businesses including Mexico and he was also the first non-Japanese Executive Officer for Sumitomo Chemical Company. For the past 5 years he acted as president and co-owner of Engage Agro USA, a startup focusing on value added and niche products. He brings direct experience in the Florida, Texas and California drip markets as one of Engage’s largest products is a soil surfactant focused on creating water savings.
Eurodrip USA is committed to developing new and innovative ways to bring value to our customers and to the farmers who use our products. Trevor’s lifelong experience in agriculture, from growing up on a family farm to leading some of the largest Ag input companies, brings passion and expertise to this commitment. His leadership and management experience, along with his clear and incisive understanding of the agricultural industry, will help us develop and implement exciting strategic plans focused on bringing value to our customers.
Trevor will officially start in December 2015. Please join us in welcoming Trevor to Eurodrip and wishing him every success in his new role.
Our global CEO, Mihalis Panagis, has resigned from Eurodrip. As some of you know, Mihalis has been the CEO of Eurodrip for the last 10 years and, under his leadership, has significantly grown the global company. Mihalis will stay on with Eurodrip for the next six months in a consultant role in order to ensure a smooth transition.
As we move forward, Paine + Partners has already identified a new CEO, Peter Berweger. As you can read in the press release below, Mr. Berweger comes from Syngenta and will start his role as Eurodrip’s global CEO starting August 1st. We are confident that Mr. Berweger will pick up where Mihalis leaves off and continue to effectively lead Eurodrip as we enter the next stage of growth.
- Water is applied just where you want it.
Drip irrigation applies water directly to the soil surface or subsurface and allows the water to dissipate under low pressure in a predetermined pattern. A wetted profile develops in the plant's root zone beneath each dripper. Ideally, the area between rows or individual plants remains dry and receives moisture only from incidental rainfall. The advantages of drip systems are that the water is applied directly to the soil in a smaller wetted area reducing evaporation and water consumption by weeds while operating at a lower pressure.
- Conserves water resources.
Micro irrigation systems apply water on a high-frequency basis and create a near optimal soil moisture environment for the crop. Under proper management, micro irrigation saves water since only the plant's root zone is supplied with water and little, if any, is lost to deep percolation, consumption by non-beneficial plants, or soil surface evaporation. Some movement of moisture below the crop roots is necessary to prevent excessive salt buildup in the root zone.
- Irrigate irregular shaped fields easily.
Micro irrigation systems are useful and suitable for sloping or irregularly-shaped pieces of land that are impossible to flood or sprinkler irrigate. A relatively small elevation drop is enough to operate a micro irrigation system on gravity pressure.
- Low pressure system equals lower energy consumption.
Micro irrigation systems operate at relatively low pressure compared to sprinkler irrigation. For this reason, pumping costs are substantially less than sprinkler systems. A pressure regulator is used to control the lateral line pressure. Multiple pressure regulators may be desirable for locations with large elevation changes. However, if pressure-compensated drippers/emitters are used, less pressure regulation at the laterals is needed.
Different types of drippers and micro sprinkler emitters are available and vary in purpose and cost. Eurodrip USA offers non-pressure compensating NGR Heavywall Dripline and pressure compensating products PC2 Heavywall Dripline and Olympus PC Heavywall Dripline which are ideal for undulating terrain.
