RAALTE, The Netherlands: The Growcoon is from now on exclusively available at Moon Biobased Products and Klasmann-Deilmann. This is the result of a collaboration between both parties that officially started on Thursday, November 17th.
The Growcoon is an innovative 100% biodegradable root plug for the horticultural industry, developed and produced by Moon Biobased Products. Both companies cater exclusively to the entire horticultural industry. Next to the Dutch market, Klasmann-Deilmann also focuses on the international market. The Growcoon can be used in combination with any desired substrate.
Both parties aimed for a strong partnership. “The Dutch market has shown in the past year that the Growcoon is a pioneering, forward-looking and successful product for the horticultural sector. To bring this product under the attention of growers in the Netherlands and in Europe, we wanted to work with an established international operating party within the horticultural industry. An important condition was that this party would have to fit the image of of the quality image of the Growcoon. We are very happy that we found this partner in Klasmann-Deilmann, ” said Bart Oude Wesselink, Managing Director Moon Biobased Products.
The internationally active substrate supplier currently has no root plugs into its range, and sees the Growcoon as a strong product for the near future. Ted Vollebregt (Managing Director Klasmann Deilmann Benelux) “The international horticulture is changing rapidly. Klasmann-Deilmann plays an important role in this industry and therefore pays great attention to sustainable innovations. We see the Growcoon as a product that will change the horticultural sector structurally. Because of the close relationship between substrate and the Growcoon we are very happy that , together with Moon Biobased Product, we may continue to market this product. ”
The Growcoon is a 100% biodegradable root plug for the horticultural sector. The teardown time of Growcoon is approximately twelve months, depending on environmental factors such as bacterial activity, humidity and acidity of the substrate. The active soil life, for example the open field crops, has an accelerating effect. Because of the use of innovative production techniques, the Growcoon fit in standard trays that are used in the horticulture. The Growcoon can be processed automatically in trays, and then filled by the breeder itself with his own substrate. The correct fit of the Growcoon in combination with any substrate and filled an open grid structure, forms the ideal basis for optimal and rapid plant growth. After a successful launch in 2016 Moon Biobased Products expects at least a tenfold increase in sales in 2017.
