Grodan enables Precision Growing with the combination of stone wool growing media, innovative growing tools and personal advice.
Next Generation 2.0 (NG2.0) is the latest substrate technology from Grodan. This technology enables propagators and growers to produce more while using less water, nutrients and space. It creates optimal growing conditions for a whole season, and allows roots to make better use of the entire substrate. NG2.0 is available in plugs, blocks and slabs to help growers and propagators produce sustainably, healthy fresh vegetables for a growing population

Producing more with less
Producing more with less is in our roots. Since we invented hydroponic stone wool growing in 1969 we have continuously evolved the Grodan approach to sustainable growing. Our first customers started growing hydroponically to avoid disinfection of the soil which was done with methyl bromide, a heavy toxic chemical.
Our growing media enabled them to provide the plants with water and fertilizer much more precisely and efficiently. By doing so the yield per square meter further increased, while at the same time saving water, fertilizer and subsequently saving on costs.
Grodan can be seen as one of the Founding Fathers of Precision Growing for the horticulture industry. Today, growers make use of a wide range of innovative products for the entire growing cycle from the start of the propagation till harvesting.
Precision Growing enables professional growers to better control important growing parameters and to ensure the optimal growing environment for root development in stone wool. Grodan is the number one of the world in growing media solutions for the professional hhorticulture industry and has the purpose to "empower Precision Growing for everyone".
