Klasmann-Deilmann’s new product line of sustainable substrates combines raw materials with a low carbon footprint.
"This new range brings together the strengths of wood fiber, green compost, coir, perlite, and peat," the Klasmann-Deilmann team explains. "Our recipes ensure precise cultivation control and healthy crop growth. And the increasing use of renewable resources keeps the carbon footprint down and facilitates sustainable development at horticultural businesses, while more lightweight substrates mean transport is more environmentally friendly. The advanced range covers all plant and crop segments for any horticultural use."
“Our advanced range sets the benchmark for forward-looking growing media – high performing, reliable in cultivation and sustainable,” says Moritz Böcking, Managing Director of the Klasmann-Deilmann Group. “There’s a lot of talk about alternative raw materials and peat substitutes. The fact is that wood fiber, compost and the rest have long been an integral part of every good product range. And, in our new product line, they are quite essential. Advanced substrates are our new standard.”
To meet the growing demand, the company is continually investing in the expansion of its production capacity. “This gives us a real edge. Drawing on our extensive experience, we can make specific use of the full range of substrate constituents for all horticultural applications, so that commercial plant producers can fully enjoy their benefits. The priority here is reliability in terms of crop cultivation,” affirms Böcking.
Over the next five years, Klasmann-Deilmann aims to reduce their products’ carbon footprint by up to 50%. “This will also be of benefit to environmentally conscious growers,” Moritz Böcking adds. “The new generation of advanced growing media represents a step forward in every respect – and we’re keen to share it with our customers.”
