Superior mixes for all of today's demands

A professional grower wants the optimal growing media mixes best suited to their crops. That sounds simple, but this involves a huge range of variables. Every crop demands a reliable and consistent substrate composition to ensure optimal yield, plant stability, nutrient supply, water retention and ultimately, plant quality. Growers today also see more demand for organic crops and environmentally-friendly cultivation methods. The reusability and safe disposal properties of substrates are increasingly important in our industry, and we are happy it is. Our substrate solutions answer today’s demands for professional plant production.

Flexistart

Flexistart is an enriched all-natural substrate that transforms from a loose fill mix into a stabilized plug by adding water. It works with most flat filling equipment, tray size, seeding or sticking method, and transplanting machinery. It provides efficient in-line changeover, enabling just-in-time production.

  • Excellent handling
  • Time and labor saving
  • Minimizes waste

During trials, Flexistart consistently outperformed the control in root development, plant uniformity, and flower count. It offers a fully enforced dibble structure. This ensures centered seed placement and complete contact for unrooted cuttings – every time. The exceptional plug integrity minimizes soil loss, whether you are grading, transplanting, or shipping young plant material.

Flexistart is commercially available in North America. Open for trialing in Europe.

FORMiT

Today’s ultramodern high-tech growers need special substrates which can meet their specific demands. For example, vegetable growers who produce young plants in small plugs using automated planting equipment need substrate which holds together during the rigors of automated handling and transplanting. Jiffy FORMiT substrate blend is designed specifically for today’s highly automated growing facilities.  The FORMiT product line contains a special mineral binder which keeps the plug together when run through automated transplanters or field planting equipment.

  • Stronger roots
  • Saving time
  • Solution driven

The stable FORMiT plug, a lack of transplant shock and a more efficient use of planting equipment, thanks to fewer misses in the field, saves labor on re-planting missed spots, and results ultimately in higher yields.
