At this IPM, Peat substrate and substrate raw materials supplier Compaqpeat, instead of promoting new innovations, as the company has done previously, will mention its achievements of working in partnership with customers and suppliers.
Compaqpeat has been serving customers in more than 60 countries for more than 20 years since it has been founded.
More than 150 employees in the Baltic States work with and for Compaqpeat. These employees control the entire value chain, from the extraction of raw materials to the finished product.
"Compaqpeat recognizes the importance of growing media not only for ornamental plants but also for food plants and shrubs," the team says. "Plants are significant in their importance for the climate and will become even more important in the future. With its substrates, Compaqpeat would like to create opportunities for ecologically important plants to grow."
Compaqpeat supports its suppliers in the development of new substrate precursors and innovative products. The introduction of "MiCo," a microorganism complex, a special trace nutrient fertilizer, is an example of this, as is "Admina," a humic acid complex for substrate admixture.
"There are major tasks ahead for a substrate producer in the future," the team continues. "Such as the conversion of substrates to more peat-reduced products, the energy-efficient extraction and processing of raw materials, as well as climate-friendly transportation of the substrates to the customer. We will solve all of the above-mentioned in collaboration with its competent partners."
"Compaqpeat, therefore, sees a close partnership and friendly cooperation with the people and companies in this industry as one of the most important tasks for the future," they conclude.
