Dutch Plantin double layer growbag: saves costs … saves the environment
This special growbag has two layers: a layer of coco chips at the bottom (5-15 mm) and a layer of coco pith at the top where the fine dust is removed. Research and experience show that the double layer growbag ensures optimal growth conditions: fast initial growth after planting, a horizontal rooting through the entire layer and uniform drainage. As such these coir growbags can be optimally controlled and used in various crops: vegetables, flowers and soft fruit like strawberries.
After cultivation the content of the growbags can be used in other crops or as soil improvement. That’s because of the stable structure of the coir. Very sustainable.
Research at PlantResearch in Made (The Netherlands) shows remarkable advantages when using Dutch Plantin Optima growbags.
This has resulted in a growbag with all advantages combined
- easy to expand uniform
- root establishment horizontally
- excellent drainage through the coco chips at the bottom
- less root diseases as no wet roots anymore
- minimum equal yield compared to stonewool
- up to 20% less water consumption compared to stonewool
- saves fertilizers
- saves money
With up to 17.000 growbags in a 40” container the transport is very efficient and sustainable.
