Watermelon are part of the Cucurbits family, endemic to the African tropical area. This plant is cultivated all year round and is composed of an herbaceous stem, big leaves and a huge fruit. However, its fruit is only available during the summer. In fact, to sprout, the watermelon seed needs high temperatures around 24°, (which is the reason why it can only be found in the summer), while to grow perfectly the plant needs an external temperature of roughly 30°. If you wish to cultivate watermelons, make sure that your soil is rich in water and nutritional substances, acid for the most part and definitely not dry.

The horticulture machines, used for watermelon growing machines include bed formers, mulch layers, ridgers, film layers and ditchers, which are the perfect solution for the preparation of the sowing bed, for the laying of the film and the creation of draining canals and for the ridge of tunnel film, a procedure allowing to pick up the ground and earth it up at the edges.
