Never again polluted silos in horticulture!

Water silos in horticulture are necessary for every grower. The large amount of water storage is needed for the crop and every company also has one. Naturally, silos also become contaminated and bacteria, fungal and algae end up in the water, which is detrimental to the oxygen level and water quality. A low oxygen level has an adverse effect on the crop and a contaminated silo has an adverse effect on drip lines for the silo itself. Plants need good water

Why an investment in water quality is needed for horticulture!

One of the most important carriers that the crop needs is water. Water ensures that the plant can grow and stay healthy. This seems obvious, but the water quality at most growers is certainly not optimal. As a result, many algae will develop, more dirt will remain in the water and mould and bacteria will have the chance to damage the crop. In addition, drip lines are affected and become contaminated. This reduces the root development of the crop, making the

“Improving the plants root system with extra oxygen”

If the water weren’t so cold, the silo at Dutch Berries would look pretty tempting for a dip. When you look at it at the right time, you see a real bubble bath. With millions of miniscule bubbles in the silo, the strawberry grower improves the root system of the strawberry plants. Frans van Hulten, cultivation manager at Dutch Berries: “With this approach we hope to get rid of root diseases such as verticillium and root rot in our new greenhouse.”

“Bioreactor for clean water and drip system”

Seeds growing company SeedCare in Oosterleek, North Holland, produces under 40 hectares of glass. They have as many as 40 different crops of seeds for national and international breeding companies. The vegetable crops, such as cucumber and tomato, are grown in the ground. The pot plants, including cyclamen, primula and begonia, stand on fixed cultivation tables. The crops get water as needed, so there is no drain or drainage water. The company does not recirculate the water.Clean irrigation water “Because

“Aeration system for higher oxygen levels at roots”

A high oxygen content in water is essential for the development of plants. In order to realize an optimal oxygen input, various vegetable companies in the glasshouse horticulture use the OXYBULL aeration system. The system ensures that the concentration of oxygen in the water and around the root environment is optimal. Combined with oxygen meters, the oxygen level on the computer can be represented in a graph.Very small air bubbles The aeration system is a kind of vibration plate, which

“More bacteria can also mean more stable growth”

It was long thought that bacteria was something to combat, but now it is clear that this idea isn’t true for horticulture. According to Nadir Laaguili of Agrona it is not about combating bacteria, but about achieving the right balance. For this, the company developed a real plug-and-play nursery for beneficial, aerobic bacteria. “Look at a virus, for example,” says Nadir. “You cannot get rid of that. It turns out that something like that is always present in the crop. We

Water handling application takes care for a constant optimal oxygen level

Enough oxygen in the root-environment is a condition for a strong and healthy cultivation. More oxygen makes the cultivation stronger and leads to higher productions. That is the experience of Van der Voort Tomaten in Vielpolders. The company uses a water handling application which keeps the oxygen level optimal. The company produces on an 8-hectare mini plum tomatoes and cocktail tomatoes. Light is built on 3 of the 8 hectares. The company on the Tuindersweg is the second establishment, the main
