What a greenhouse looks like during crop rotation

The last day of November means it's time for the last Special Crop Rotation here on HortiDaily, and an update from the greenhouses of Westlandpeppers provides a nice overview of what's been happening at a lot of companies lately: crop rotation.

In the greenhouses of Westlandpeppers in De Lier and 's-Gravenzande (both in the Westland region in the Netherlands), all plants have been removed from the greenhouses. The greenhouses were then cleaned, and new plastic was put in place.

The old plants, together with the coco substrate mats, are recycled into soil improver. Then, the drip irrigation system is re-installed in the new coco substrate mats. The water ensures the substrate mats are filled with water, providing nutrition for the new plants.

In the greenhouse in 's-Gravenzande, the new plants are already in place, and in the coming weeks this will also happen in De Lier, the company reports in an update with some photos.
