There are several reasons why you might want to consider using an advanced growing medium:
Our products are hailed as one of the most advanced growing substrates in the world and are deployed at multiple locations across the UK, USA, MENA Region and Asia. We’re also expanding internationally, forming key strategic partnerships.
An effective growing substrate should be at the heart of any vertical farm and, depending on solution chosen, we also can provide in-house developed Pre-Seeded Mats for easy harvesting as part of our one-stop shop model.
Reduced need for fertilizers and pesticides: Because advanced growing media are often formulated with specific nutrients and beneficial microorganisms, plants grown in these substrates may require no fertilizers and pesticides to stay healthy. This can help reduce the environmental impact of your growing operation and save you money on inputs.
Improved plant growth: Advanced growing substrates are often designed to provide optimal conditions for plant growth, including aeration, drainage, and water retention. This can lead to faster growth, healthier plants, and higher yields.
Consistency: Unlike traditional growing media like soil or peat moss, advanced growing substrates are often manufactured to very precise specifications, ensuring consistent quality and performance across batches.
Using a growing substrate that is soft on the roots can be highly beneficial for plant growth and overall plant health. When a growing substrate is too hard or compact, it can make it difficult for roots to penetrate and expand, which can lead to stunted growth or even root rot.
In contrast, a soft growing substrate can allow for easier root penetration and expansion, which can help plants take up nutrients and water more efficiently. This can result in faster growth, higher yields, and healthier plants overall.
Additionally, a growing substrate with an optimum air/moisture balance can help prevent overwatering and ensure that roots have access to the oxygen they need to thrive. This can also help prevent the build-up of harmful microorganisms and reduce the need for pesticides and fungicides.
Our Jute substrate is especially made for easy germination process. For herbs and leavy greens, the mat has outstanding moisture-air properties and needs less water once saturated, low risk of mold and algae or root disease. For a great customer experience start using our soilless substrates.
Our Blue Mat jute plug is made from 100% natural fibers, 100% compostable and 100% sustainable. This high quality plug is well recieved by many customers. Available in any dimension and density. Excellent air-moisture management, inert and easy in use. A dry surface plug, so less pot worms or other insects.
The Pre-Seeded Mats (P.S.M.) are patented and will lower your OpEX, with shorter time frames and no nursery. These mats are the solution for Mold & Pathogen free germination and harvesting. One-stop growing for your hydroponic or aquaponic installation. Easy in use, try it and you like it.
In biology, a substrate is the surface on which an organism (such as a plant or fungus) lives. A substrate can include biotic (plants) or abiotic materials (water and atmosphere). Inert substrates are used as growing support materials in the hydroponic cultivation of plants. HollandBioProducts uses only substrates made of the finest jute on earth.
If you are looking to improve plant growth and yields, reduce the need for fertilizers and pesticides, ensure consistency in your growing operation, and/or adopt more sustainable growing practices, with optimum air/moisture balance, an advanced growing substrate with an optimum air/moisture balance, may be worth considering.
