Tailor-made growing media

We can always provide our growers with advice and help them decide what would be the best mixture for their specific growing methods and cultivation style. We offer substrates for several different types of soft fruits, like blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.

Since we produce substrates to order, we are able to quickly attend to the changing market and supply growers with the best tailor made mixtures.

We can mix in additives that can help reach the desired physical properties. Some of these are perlite, bark and coir. Our Sales Advisors can help you find out what additives your cultivation would benefit from.

BVB TopClean

In addition to substrates we can also provide a suitable cover agent. The cover agent, BVB TopClean, prevents the growth of moss and other weeds, which saves the grower a lot of work. It also makes sure the top layer of substrate dries up quickly and stays in place even during transportation or windy weather. It is perfectly safe to use for soft fruit cultivation.

Adding fertiliser

It is possible to mix additives into the substrates. It depends on the specific needs of the grower which additives is used. We have to make sure the additive is of value for the plant that grows in the substrate. We usually add a basic mixture of fertiliser (PG-mix) to the substrate. We can use Dolokal to control and tune the pH-level of a mixture. On request we can add CRF (Controlled Release Fertiliser), biological fertilisers or, for example, mycorrhizas.

 

Growing in trays

We provide special substrates for misted tips and growing in trays. These mixes do not compact which is important for preventing root diseases.
