Grodan Launches Vermiculite-Free Plantop NG2.0 Funnel Plug. Global leader in stone wool growing media solutions Grodan announces the launch of a new Funnel Plug. Unlike other stone wool plugs, the patented Plantop NG2.0 Funnel Plug does not require the propagator to add a layer of vermiculite after seeding. That means excellent results and a cleaner work environment, and is particularly important because vermiculite is becoming increasingly difficult to source.
At Grodan, we believe that the greenhouse horticultural sector plays a leading role in the efficient, safe and local production of healthy and sustainable food, now and in the future.
The Dutch horticultural sector binds forces and organizes a full two-day lasting Horticultural program at the Netherlands Pavilion, during the theme-week ‘Food, Agriculture & Livelihoods’ from 17 – 23 February 2022 at the World Expo in Dubai. The first day on Monday 21 February is organized by the public sector and the second day; on Tuesday 22 February is organized by Dutch companies. Grodan, is one of the more than 20 companies that shows how high-tech horticulture can make a sustainable contribution to global food security. The inspiring and interactive program takes place in our price-winning Netherlands Pavilion wherein we combine water, food, and energy. The total program of both Horticultural Days will be broadcast live from the Netherlands Pavilion.
We kicked off the new growing season by a new release in e-Gro. As a result of interviews with top growers worldwide and continuous testing, we’ve increased the focus on optimisation in the Production Module and Reports Module.
We hope you had a great summer and harvest! As the days get shorter and darker, for many of you the growing season is coming to a close or you will soon transfer to growing with artificial light. We’ve worked hard on new features and updates that are available as of today in your account for growers with lit* cultivation as well as for growers without lit cultivation.
According to a recent study, an innovative greenhouse saves more than 75% of required land for vegetable production
