greenfibre_logoGEESTE, Germany: Klasmann GreenFibre is a high-quality wood fibre product that has undergone both thermal and mechanical processing. It is manufactured with various textures precisely tailored to different applications. Wood fibre is among the substrate constituents that we want to make greater use of in the future. And we are embracing the benefits of in-house production.

The main advantages of this raw material derived from sustainable forestry are the increased air capacity and additional optimisation of drainage capacity, as well as the improvement of capillary water distribution in the substrate. Thanks to a special nutrient-management concept, Klasmann GreenFibre combined with valuable raw peat materials has proven an excellent ingredient, especially for structurally stable growing media.

Klasmann GreenFibre:

  • promotes fast, healthy root development;
  • improves rewettability;
  • reduces transport costs due to its low weight;
  • is certified to R.H.P and PEFC standards;
  • is ideal for organic substrates and complies with EU Regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 and Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EC) No. 889/2008, inspected by Grünstempel®.
