The agreement will accelerate the sales and marketing of iyris' SecondSky agricultural covers, stocking the product in Sherwood's branches in the UAE and making it readily available to its customer's network.

"SecondSky greenhouse covers block near infrared heat radiation reducing energy consumption by over 40%, water use by 30%, and increase profitability by 28% - transforming farming operations by improving yield and produce quality and profit margins, empowering sustainable farming in this hot climate", said Simon Stockil, Growth Director, EMEA, at iyris.

"We are excited to announce our exclusive distribution agreement with Sherwood, as we continue to ensure SecondSky greenhouse covers are readily available to meet the growing demand in the UAE market. In Sherwood, we have identified a trusted partner with an established distribution network and client base. We are now better placed to capitalize on the significant growth opportunity in the region. The agreement is a major step in advancing commercial farming in the region in a more sustainable and lucrative manner.

"As a pure-play technology company focusing on the commercialization and development of AgriClimate technology solutions, the benefits of SecondSky have already been established in the GCC. Partnering with Sherwood, a subsidiary of Silal, is testament to this."

Mussaab Al Farah, Managing Director at Sherwood, commented: "At Sherwood we provide high-quality agricultural supplies and offerings to farmers, enabling growth in production. We are delighted to add iyris' SecondSky, a truly unique product which is transforming farming practices around the world, to our portfolio of products."

In 2023, SecondSky won the ASABE AE50 award and the Davidson Prize.
