This course is called "From analysis to recipe" and is especially designed for people who work with plants growing on substrates and have to make regular decisions about fertilizer recipes.

It will help you better understand how plants grow. This will result in a better plant health and fruit quality. Students will learn useful things about:
  • How to analyze the feed and the drain
  • How to read the reports of these analyses
  • Which essential elements each of the different fertilizers contribute
  • The different targets for peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers and
  • When and how to amend the fertilizer recipe
Heidi Balla: "It was put together very well. I learned some valuable things and I really think this will help people understand their fertilizer programs, recipes and water samples much better. I would recommend it".

The course is now open not only to Vortus customers, but to everyone interested. It is an individual e-learning that can be taken in your own environment at your own pace.

Individual support is available and questions can be asked using the learning platform. The course will take about 4 hours to complete.

Upon completion you will receive a certificate of achievement and you will be able to make your own fertilizer recipe and adjust it for your own crop.
If you are interested in following this course, contact Tineke Goebertus at for more information on how to get started.
