    Hydroponics

    `A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks...

  • Water treatment for horticulture

    Horticultural and greenhouse operations are facing increasing challenges in dealing with sanitation issues related to water treatment. Over the course of growing a crop, pathogenic microorganisms accumulate and algae flourish on moist surfaces posing a constant threat to plants and produce. The main challenges lie the areas of irrigation water, elimination of biofilm and algae control. Existing biocidal products, while effective in killing algae, are not effective in removing biofilm from the water lines. The...

    Frost Protection for the Horticulture Industry

    The main benefits of the Toptex winter protection fabric can therefore be listed as creating barrier against wind chill and UV radiation, thereby nullifying temperature extremes, allowing the exchange of gases, which leaves the plants to breath and thereby avoids plant disorder. Furthermore, the Toptex winter protection fabric provides necessary light absorption while also allowing water absorption: whether laid on the ground or in the tunnel method, precipitation is carried within the fabric.

  • Cuttings

    Paper pots and glued plugs are very suitable for rooting and raising plants from cuttings. Plugs with pre-dibbled or pre-drilled plant holes are clearly winning ground. And that’s not surprising: they save time and labour. Ever more cuttings are being produced and rooted in areas with a favourable climate and low wages, such as Africa. To minimise the costs of air transport, the plants are loaded into the planes as small as possible, and in as many as possible per tray. The very tender, lightly rooted...

  • Horticulture water UV disinfection

    UV disinfection is popular for treating water used in horticultural applications, as it introduces no chemicals or by-products which can stress plants and lower crop quality.

    Leading OEMs manufacture specific UV systems to continually disinfect the water being used in various soil based and soil-less plant cultivation techniques, such as hydroponic systems. UV disinfection does not affect the pH or chemistry of the water and neutralises many organisms problematic to commercial horticulturalis...

  • Electric Heating System for Horticulture and Viticolture

    Cofilea is founded in 2005 in Biella, in the north-west of Italy. In 2013, we patented ET-1000 a electric heating technical textile. Cofilea uses this to produce: EH-POWERGROUND. It is a light, water-resistant radiant mat, that can be used for flower farming and horticulture as ground heating on racks, with the purpose of reducing and controlling the duration of the growing period, between the seeding or transplantation and the moment of marketability of the plant. This system is characterized by efficiency...

  • Tissue Culture

    Companies specialising in tissue culture multiply large numbers of plants in a short space of time by propagating plant parts and plant cells in artificial culture media. This is done in vitro under sterile conditions. Unlike with cuttings, the primary rooting often takes place in vitro too. Tissue-culture or in-vitro plants are nowadays used by thousands of growers. For some species, such as Lisianthus, orchids, lilies and various perennials, this is the most common form of propagation. A steadily increasing...

  • Greenhouse Irrigation Management

    Why efficient irrigation is important. Water and fertilizers are essential to the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase...
