The Growcoon is now available exclusively from Maan BioBased Products and Klasmann-Deilmann. This is the result of a collaboration that both parties entered officially on Thursday 17 November. The Growcoon is an innovative biodegradable root plug for the horticulture sector, developed and produced by Maan BioBased Products. Both parties supply exclusively to the entire horticultural sector. Klasmann-Deilmann focuses not only on the Dutch market with the Growcoon, but also operates on the international market. One major agreement within the collaboration is that the Growcoon can be sold in combination with any required substrate.
Both parties were very much convinced that collaboration was the way to go. “The Dutch market has confirmed for us over this last year that the Growcoon is a pioneering, future-oriented and successful product for the horticulture sector. To draw attention to this product specifically to growers in the Netherlands and Europe, we wanted to work together with an established internationally operating party within the horticultural sector. One key precondition was that the image of the partner had to reflect the image of the Growcoon. We are delighted that we found this party in Klasmann-Deilmann", says Bart Oude Wesselink, Managing Director Maan BioBased Products. The internationally operating substrate supplier does not currently have any root plugs in its range, and sees in the Growcoon a strong product for the future. Ted Vollebregt (Managing Director Klasmann-Deilmann Benelux) "International horticulture is changing rapidly. Klasmann-Deilmann plays a key role in the sector, which is why it focuses so closely on sustainable innovation. We see the Growcoon as a product that will change the horticultural sector structurally. Due to the close connection between substrate and the Growcoon, we are really delighted that we may market this product together with Maan BioBased Products."
The Growcoon is a biodegradable root plug for the horticulture sector. The disintegration period of a Growcoon is on average around twelve months, depending on environmental factors, such as bacterial action, humidity and acidity of the substrate. The active soil life in open ground cultivation, for example, results in an accelerated disintegration process. By applying innovative production techniques, the Growcoon fits in commonly used trays used in horticulture. The Growcoon can be placed in the tray using an automated system and then filled by the grower with his own substrate. Combined with loosely filled substrate and an open net structure, the perfect fit of the Growcoon is the ideal basis for optimal and rapid plant growth.
