GRODAN Vital Benefits

1. Retains sufficient water
The reliable resaturation properties of GRODAN Vital ensure a wide control range for crop steering. As the slab retains sufficient moisture at all times there is no risk of the plants drying out. The improved capillary action of GRODAN Vital also ensures that moisture is retained more evenly throughout the entire slab.


2. Easy irrigation
The properties of GRODAN Vital enable a multi-faceted irrigation strategy by allowing growers to vary the water volume within a safe range of between 55% and 78% (day level). If insufficient water has been supplied, the slab can be resaturated quickly at any desired moment. And if too much water has been given, the slab’s properties will ensure that excess water is drained away efficiently to prevent the WC from rising too high.


3. Fast, uniform crop development
The vertical, fibrous structure of GRODAN Vital enables roots to penetrate the slab easily, resulting in fast root development. Homogenous development in the root zone guarantees vigorous and uniform crop growth resulting in stronger, healthier plants. In addition, the extra firmness of the slab structure guarantees a stable root volume right up until the end of the cultivation cycle.


4. Synchronise plant and climate management
Thanks to GRODAN Vital, growers can steer plant development within a narrow WC and EC bandwidth. This excellent irrigation efficiency results in a lower 24-hour drain percentage as well as a lower nutrient and energy input. These factors make it easy to synchronise various climate management strategies designed to reduce the energy input and maintain a stable substrate EC during changeable weather conditions.


5. Sustainable water and nutrient use
GRODAN Next Generation fibres do not bind water or nutrients and do not require flushing at the start of the cultivation cycle. A targeted application of water and nutrients from the start of the cultivation cycle enables sustainable water and fertilizer use. In combination with other management strategies this also facilitates improved crop steering and better initial setting and fruit development – resulting in resilient plants that give high production.
