World leading company in solutions for high performance intensive agriculture and public works, GRUPO GESTIRIEGO is made up of a wide network of delegations and distributors spread throughout the world with headquarters in five countries and headquarters in Spain. Since 1985, they have focused on providing farmers around the world with products that provide maximum efficiency, achieving 100% yields from their crops and the greatest sustainable benefit for the planet.

The company has a high investment in the R + D + i department (Research, development and innovation), with the collaboration of universities and technological institutes: a sum of talent from the best professionals in the market working on the constant improvement of water efficiency, with the base value of ecological benefit.

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

GESTIRIEGO: The main areas of activity of our company are focused on the agriculture, gardening and civil works sector. We supply irrigation systems to those sectors that most demand water resources to carry out their activities.

E.E: What’s the news about new products?

GESTIRIEGO: For now we are working to optimize our products to enter an increasingly competitive market in terms of prices.

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

GESTIRIEGO: Population growth and climate change are increasing water stress in Europe, especially in the Mediterranean arc. For this reason, the main challenge for companies like ours is to guarantee adequate irrigation of crops with innovation focused on the optimal use of resources, both water and energy.

The climate balance of the European Environment Agency in Spain for the winter of 2021-2022 described it as the second driest and the fourth warmest since 1961. The key to optimizing irrigation is controlling water management with irrigation systems. technical irrigation that increases the efficiency, operation and optimal management of our irrigation.

Our vision of the future is focused on precision agriculture to take care of our environment and minimize the ecological impact. The European Union’s water resources are under increasing pressure, resulting in water scarcity, both for the population and for agriculture and other sectors, and a deterioration in its quality. Climate change, unpredictable weather patterns, and droughts are contributing significantly to the pressure on freshwater availability from urban development and agriculture.

Our main mission is to transform difficulties into success by meeting the demands of each crop and soil, identify problems and implement practical and sustainable solutions that allow maximizing production with the greatest efficiency in resource management. The exponential growth of hydroponic agriculture has led to the development of drainage recirculation systems that allow the maximum optimization of this resource for high and low production crops. The estimate is of saving 80% of water in this type of plantation.

In support of this system, at Gestiriego we take on this challenge and develop efficient emission and dosing tools, thus allowing higher quality crops with much higher yields than those obtained in the open air and contributing to the sustainability of water resources.

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

GESTIRIEGO: The three most innovative products that we have in our catalog are all developed in our R+D+i department:

ORON automatic mesh filters, automatic cleaning equipment with a hydraulic suction nozzle system, do not require interrupting the filtering phase for cleaning, thus avoiding pressure losses in the installation during the washing process.

Simpler equipment that gains in efficiency, specially designed to meet the needs of the most demanding installations. They are characterized by being: SIMPLER, BETTER PERFORMANCES, MORE FILTRATION

  • Easy installation and handling
  • Low maintenance
  • Filtering area 20% more effective compared to the competition
  • Zero head loss at recommended working flows
  • Minimum wear of its parts
  • Possibility of working individually or in battery
  • High quality materials, resistant to contact with water:
  • Carbon steel body with certified treatment under ISO standards.
  • Large surface removable pre-filters for large particles
  • Fine three-layer mesh made of 100% stainless steel.
  • Piston made 100% stainless steel.
  • Adjustable nozzles for a more optimal suction.
  • MXFilter filter equipment

Ring filtering equipment with a totally different design from the conventional one, providing the equipment with a larger filtering surface and the possibility of self-cleaning without the need for internal mechanisms for the separation of rings. The modular equipment is adaptable to any work flow, being able to choose between 2 or 3” units according to needs. The simplicity of its elements minimizes maintenance and wear parts, which guarantees high reliability and safety in the most demanding installations.

  • Large filter surface rings
  • Cleaning by backwashing without the need to separate the rings
  • 3-way models for backwashing using simple valves.
  • Low maintenance and high reliability
  • Individual or battery installation
  • Possibility of manual or automatic cleaning
  • Wide range of models


The GTR AIR RELEASE VALVES are the lungs that keep your system in perfect condition, managing the air inside. For this reason, GESTIRIEGO has put great efforts into its manufacture and design in order to achieve the most efficient air release valve in the market.

GESTIRIEGO’s AIR RELEASE VALVE range has its own patents, asserting exclusive benefits over competitors.


They prevent ruptures due to air accumulation, making it come out of the piping at the same rate as water enters. 

Any type of air pockets or bubbles at high points reducing the passageway section are thoroughly eliminated. 

Corrosion damage, water meter reading errors, energy drops, etc. are avoided. 

Air can thus re-enter the main and secondary piping, preventing vacuum, dirt and mud from entering through the emitters. The piping is also protected from breaking and crushing. 


Special ‘Wave System’ lock that ensures efficient operation of the air release valve, facilitating air release at high flow rates when the system is under load, guaranteeing watertightness at low pressure. 


System filling, system vacuum and on-load system. 


High resistance to pressure and chemical agents dissolved in irrigation water. Both the grommet and the tube are made of silicone, which is much more resistant to these products than materials such as EPDM or NBR. In this way, adequate air release valve operation is ensured for a much longer period of time than other similar products on the market. 

The GTR1T and GTR2T triple-function air release valves are PN16 certified.

E.E: What estimates do you have for 2023?

GESTIRIEGO: Our commitment for 2023 is to continue advancing in innovation and continuous improvement, with the launch of a completely new filtration equipment as well as reinventing ourselves in manufacturing processes so that each year we can be more competent in this market.
