Soft fruit is booming

Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants and blueberries are more popular than ever. Healthy eating is the latest trend. A great development that entails challenges for growers too: soft fruit plants are sensitive to changing weather conditions and require strongly acidic soil. The solution? Coco substrates! The pH value of coco is easy to manage. Moreover, our growbags blocks and briquettes are easy to irrigate, so any discrepancies in moisture levels, for example due to sudden weather changes, can immediately be corrected.

Sustainable and future-proof

No more need for spraying, because the substrates can generally be irrigated using a drip irrigation system. That’s a better solution for vulnerable plants. Moreover, you save a lot in water, allowing you to prepare for the future: fresh water is becoming scarcer all over the world, so the regulations are becoming stricter. Our coco products are also ideal for greenhouse, tunnel and tray cultivation, which better protect the crops. It is an excellent way of reducing the use of pesticides, which is also high on the political agendas. Curious to find out what else Dutch Plantin does to make the world a better place?
