Strawberries

The Strawberry substrates from BVB Substrates are tailor-made and produced to fit the exact needs of the grower. Our Sales Advisors can advise the best solutions depending on for example the demands of the crop, water quality, cultivation and irrigation methods, preferences of the grower, or sustainability requirements.

The perfect propagation mixture

The propagation of strawberry plants usually takes place this time of year. It is crucial that the substrate that is used supports the development of the young plants well. For this purpose we offer special propagation substrates for strawberries.

Strawberry Green Propagation

Strawberry Green Propagation is the best propagation mixture we have to offer. It has been specifically developed for the propagation of strawberry plants in trays. The addition of BVB Accretio makes this mixture the sustainable alternative to Strawberry Premium and Excellent Propagation.

This propagation substrate consists of a high-quality tray mix of stable peat fractions, high-quality coco peat treated in our own factory, perlite and BVB Accretio. This combination of excellent raw materials makes Strawberry Green Propagation a substrate with the right airiness, fast water absorption and good long-term stability.

The substrate also appears to be beneficial for the cooling rate of the plants.

In addition to benefits for your plants, BVB Accretio also offers environmental benefits. This light weight, renewable raw material has a relatively small impact on the environment. We can also calculate the carbon footprint of all our mixtures to give you more insight into the sustainability benefits of our Green product line.

Differences in strawberry growing

There are multiple methods for growing strawberries in combination with different plant types. Strawberries may be grown in gutters or containers. There are strawberry varieties that are grown for short period of time, and varieties for longer, more continued growing. Some strawberry varieties  bear fruit almost whole year round. Each method of growing demands a different, tailored, substrate. BVB Substrates composes the right mixtures with great stability, the right moisture levels and airiness for every grower’s needs.

Our sales advisers can help you decide what substrate is best for your situation.
