Rapid growth: Growing of soft fruits with PERLIGRAN® substrates

Using the perlite substrate PERLIGRAN® in closed systems guarantees profitable cultivation. Thanks to screening of fine grains, the product reaches a nearly dust-free substrate quality, which ensures optimal drainage, structural stability and soil ventilation. The RHP-certified material has received the approbation as an additive for organic farming and therefore can be found on the FibL list.

Essential for soft fruit farming: Dry, airy root environment
Coldness and wetness leads to reduced growth and in a worse case among other things infestation with fungus, too. Brilliant permeability of the substrates on the other hand can be achieved with PERLIGRAN® Extra and Premium – a high-quality, RHP-certified perlite by Knauf Performance Materials. The coarse material ensures good substrate stability, i.e. less sagging within the substrate, and also a long-term optimized air-water-balance as well as very good drainage characteristics.

Valuable mineral additive
For professional soft fruits cultivation, PERLIGRAN® is the perfect mineral additive to organic plant substrates that are in use for several years. Since it does not decompose like organic substrates, it has been proven to provide better ventilation and drainage thanks to its stable structure. PERLIGRAN® permanently ensures a loose and drainage-able substrate over many years.

Longer harvest, faster and easier picking performance
Blueberries grow in the same substrate for eight up to ten years. With strawberries, the substrate still ensures a safe and high-yield harvest for two or three years – without the usual fungus infestation or pests. The fruits grow in channels, racks or the Dutch “bakken”. Those racks of 120–150 cm height make fruit picking significantly faster as in conventional cultivation in the open. This is important, as the wage factor is an essential influencer of the sales price of strawberries.

Harvest seasons from spring to autumn make cultivation even more profitable – this applies to all types of soft fruits.

Israel announces creation of global seed company

Two Israeli seed producers, Nirit Seeds and TomaTech, have joined forces to create Israel’s largest vegetable seed company. This synergy will enable unique seed breeding research and development that will accelerate the company’s growth in the international seed markets.

Upon completion of the merger, the company will have more than 80 employees worldwide, including molecular biologists, breeders, agronomists, and others.
The company will improve its breeding activities in Israel, Spain, Mexico and Italy, as well as significantly expand its representation in the Netherlands and North America, with a particular focus on growing vegetables in high-tech greenhouses.

Nirit Seeds is one of the most successful internationally traded tomato and pepper seed producers, investing in the development of revolutionary genetic technologies. TomaTech is one of the leading tomato seed companies in Israel, developing premium varieties, including those resistant to the dangerous Tomato Brown Ruffle Virus (ToBRFV).

The production of crop seeds is one of the most advanced and high-tech sectors in Israel. According to the Seed Department of the Federation of Israel Chambers of Commerce, seed exports currently generate $200 million in annual revenue. There are about 25 large and medium-sized companies in the local industry.

For reference. According to market research, the global vegetable seed industry is valued at $8 billion a year and is growing at a CAGR of 8%.
