December last year we supplied a container of growbags to a cucumber grower in The Netherlands. After tests with 20 growbags and 2 rows in the previous years he was happy to experience a larger area of his 10 ha company. “As future growing might develop to organic substrates”, he said.
So in december 2016 we supplied a 20ft container for 1 ha of cucumbers on ‘the high wire’ system. For us a good moment to work out ‘how it works with coir growbags’.
Please watch the video, how many pieces we put in 1 container, how easy it works and see the fast growing of the cucumbers in winter time in The Netherlands under artificial lights.
The customer concluded:
“Growing on these growbags is easy possible and with minimum the same yield as on stonewool. So if the market demands for cucumbers grown on an organic substrate I have no doubt anymore to move fully to these coir growbags”, according René Tielemans, Boekel.
