In about an hour, the renewed HortiContact 2020 will start. Water remains an important topic at the fair. Ridder and Agrona, among others, present their renewed machines. Furthermore, more organic crop protection options thanks to extensions of the label at Biobest.

Over the next three days, glasshouse horticulture will gather in the Evenementenhal in Gorinchem to catch up on this and that, see new innovations, discuss practical results and, of course, to see the new exhibition layout.

Oxygen in the water

Agrona’s OxyBull aeration system ensures that the oxygen concentration in the water and the root environment is optimal. The system has been improved and now has a stronger pump with a capacity of 60 m3 / hour. “This allows even more air to be blown into the water and there is more movement in the water, which prevents algae growth,” says Nadir Laaguili from Agrona.

“A high oxygen content in the water is important,” says greenhouse vegetable grower Peter Aarts in Heusden. “This aeration system takes care of that.” Aarts grows cucumbers and autumn tomatoes on rock wool mats. He applies the system in a silo whose water is intended for a department where there are always many root problems due to Pythium. The use of the aeration system must prevent this.

Agrona is present at the fair in stands I106 and G205
