NEW SYSTEM FOR STRAWBERRY PRODUCTION IN GREENHOUSE
In recent years, the growing interest of the market in the “Berries” product range has made the industry start creating new production systems, designing and/or adapting new technologies and structural designs for this type of products, in order to improve the production to be more efficient in both terms: quality and quantity produced.
J.Huete is one of those companies that, due to the market demands and the technological approach of the company, has designed and implemented a system for the production of Strawberries. Thanks to the continuous contact and the close collaboration between the company and the customers, the system could be developed, which has already been installed in different greenhouses and in different climatic locations and is currently working with good results.
The advantages and benefits of the system are as follows:
- Production capacity: up to 200,000 plants/Ha. Thanks to an oscillating gutters system we are able to maximize the plant density per hectare.
- Suitable for both bags and pots. Thanks to the versatility of the system we can use both substrate bags and pots for the production of strawberries.
- Production in substrate instead of pure hydroponic. The production in substrate allows us to take certain advantages that we do not have in a pure hydroponic system.
- Advantages of the drainage system:
- Evacuate drainage efficiently.
- Avoid the spread of diseases.
- It favors and increases aeration in the roots.
- Gets better root development.
