Open Field Vegetables

Uniform, strong plants

This broad group of crops includes onions, leeks, lettuces, and cabbages. Today’s grower needs to grow sturdy, compact plants that are easy to handle mechanically. Each plant should be the same size. They must also emerge damage-free from their tray or crate during transplantation.

High-quality substrates for better perfomance

Jiffy Substrates are the right solution for propagating all your open field vegetables. They ensure plant stability, nutrient supply, water retention, and ultimately, yields. We offer a broad range of certified, reliable substrates. From light, porous mixes to rich clay-based ones – including organic, and specially tailored options.

Multiple configurations

Our substrates can be delivered in a variety of products specially designed for automated cultivation of open field vegetables.
