Growers’ needs for structured cultivation information are continually increasing due to the improved insights into cultivation, development of new cultivation systems and the continuing increases in the scale of horticultural operations.
Besides innovative stone wool growing media Grodan offers its customers tailored cultivation advice through the 6-phase advice model, a blueprint for optimal crop results during both each cultivation phase and the entire cultivation period.
Each phase is characterized by a specific development of the crop that imposes specific requirements in that phase. Consequently, the advice for each phase needs to be tailored to the specific stage and to take into account the crop and rooting climate.
The Grodan 6-phase model not only assists growers in the selection of the appropriate substrate slab for a specific crop, but also helps then to determine the optimum watering strategy for the specific type of slab in each cultivation phase. The model can also assist in the determination of schedules for the plant load, temperature regimes, fertilization schedules, and CO2 and lighting levels.
To further enhance the 6-phase model service Grodan launched a series of User Instruction Videos, to enrich and visualize the advice provided. In total seven videos have been developed, which cover related topics.
The videos are available via Grodan YouTube channel.
