JH Agro invests massively in innovation

in News

Since the turn of the year, a number of internal initiatives have been launched to strengthen market and customer focus, product prioritization, overall efficiency and quality across the company. It has been a tough but necessary process, as it was important to focus on the absolute core values, and it was just as important to define the value, that we should create with the farmer.

Our competitiveness in the market is based on delivering added value and environmental value, delivering flexible efficiency, and not least that our overall development is based on customer-focused, sustainable and environmentally beneficial innovation.

For many years, JH Agro has provided service and maintenance for farmers in large parts of Jutland, and it will continue to be a strong field of action in the future. However, there is no doubt that the future growth of the company will be from the sale of the 2 absolute top products; JH MiniStrø and JH Acidification NH4 +. Therefore,  the owner has  invested massively in the further development of these products, and it has materialized in a number of important milestones for the company and its customers in 2018.

„We have just launched a completely new and groundbreaking control and management system for JH MiniStrø. The new system allows the farmer to work with up to 5 MiniStrø units per rail system, the system can be operated and controlled by PC, mobile or tablet, and in the new control system, a traffic system has been incorporated, so that JH MiniStrø can multitask“, says CEO Lars Rahbæk.

In the field of slurry treatment and management, JH Agro has had the JH SmellFighter approved for the important Danish Technology List for pigs,  with a remarkable, well documented performance of up to 51% odor reduction.

The company’s JH Acidification NH4 + gives a documented ammonia reduction of up to 64%, whilst at the same time giving the farmer a higher nitrogen value in the slurry, which can increase the yield in crops by up to 15%.

“In addition, but of high interest to farmers, the lower ammonia level in the stable will increase animal welfare, thereby contributing to better feed utilization and better growth, resulting in higher returns”, underlines Lars Rahbæk.

„We are also working on a couple of major projects that will provide new knowledge and new opportunities for slurry acidification. Our vision is, that we, with our product solutions in the field of slurry acidification, we must be able to handle slurry from pigs, cattle and poultry, conventional and organic, and that the acidified slurry must add value to the soil, but also that the acidified slurry can be delivered to biogas plants. It is a very ambitious goal which has required significant investments. This is absolutely relevant, since it will ultimately create a huge added value for the farmer; and for this particular reason we decided to dedicate large sums and resources to innovation“, concludes Lars Rahbæk.
