More choice in absorption capacity and controllability range. The cultivation of vegetables on substrate presents varying substrate requirements. Some crops/growers require a substrate of a generative nature, whereas others prefer a substrate with a vegetative nature. Cultilène’s substrate slabs (potentially) have a high water retention capacity that offers excellent controllability. The slabs can also be re-saturated quickly and completely. Their excellent controllability means you can vary the moisture content in every cultivation stage and in every season, within a bandwidth of your own choice.
Your slab choice depends on a combination of factors, such as the capacity of your irrigation system, your irrigation strategy, the subsoil profile, and the type of crop. With our wide range for vegetable cultivation you can select on the basis of water-retention capacity and reactivity.
