The SEMAY greenhouse is built with the same technology as AKAS greenhouse. It is spread in a 103,000 m2 area and planned to be completed in two phases. The first phase of this project is 58,000 m2. Right after the first phase, the construction of the second phase will start, which is planned for 2015. More information about the groups targets can be found at their website: www.semayakas.com
"We chose Riococo growing substrate because we want to benefit from it's highly efficient aeration and high water holding capacity," said Dr. Alper. "In this order we can have optimal control of the crop and target higher yields during the summer months. "This is also why we chose to use the Riococo starter blocks instead of traditional rockwool. The coir blocks are not only more sustainable, but they also are a perfect combination with the coir slabs; it gives you the perfect start."
The project in Afyon was a result of a close cooperation with Riococo's exclusive distributor for Eurasia: Benimplast. Mustafa Sert of Benimplast is responsible for the consultation, customer relations and distribution of Riococo. "We wish the growers of Semay Akas prosperity and many successful seasons," he added.
