To have more focus on the soil and it’s growing plants, we are convinced we produce stronger and more heathy strawberry plants.
Plant and Leaf Analysis
We use leaf analysis to monitor our plant nutrient levels. While our soil tests reveal the quantity of certain nutrients in the soil, leaf analysis shows us exactly what the plant has succeeded in taking up. To us, leaf analysis is helpful for detecting nutrient deficiencies before they can have a detrimental effect on plant health or yield.
To prevent infections by and dispersal of pest and diseases we have intensified a number of strict hygiene measures over the past few years.
Grading and storage
Grading and storage of the plants is the last but certainly not the least of these important processes, before delivery of the plants. All the different plant types are graded with great attention to detail in our various categories. After grading the plants are packed and stored in our well-developed cold stores.
We have got a number of modern and reliable cold stores for the cooling and storage of the plants. The cold stores are equipped with a fog system to prevent our fresh plants and fresh tips from dehydration. A precise temperature control system continuously measures the temperature in the cold store, as well as inside the boxes and gives us an alarm if it deviates too much.
