Soilless Substrate Agriculture

More control in substrate moisture
and fertigation.

We have participated in trials that have been conducted using substrates in strawberries for over 5 years. Strawberries grown in blended substrates have been proven to yield as good or better than conventional field practices. The trials were conducted in raised bed troughs where troughs are cut into field beds and lined with a landscape fabric and filled with substrate. Key to success is the use of an automated fertigation system that supplies water with nutrients throughout the day. Substrates containing peat and coir have been proven to work in these troughs. With the addition of peat to coir the early plant development is enhanced.
