Fertilization in horticulture

In horticulture, fertilization is a crucial part of the growth of the crop. Every crop has different needs and therefore a different fertilization strategy. That is why Royal Brinkman offers a wide range of fertilizers for professional greenhouse horticulture. Whether it concerns solid fertilizers, single or NPK, or liquid fertilizers in various types. Our specialists will be happy to advise you on the right fertilizer recipe. Each fertilizer recipe contains the main elements: nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium and sulphur. In addition to the main elements, trace elements are often added to the fertilizer recipe. Symptoms of plant failure are not done in this way. Besides plant nutrition, the natural defense mechanism of the plant is also important. It is very important that the plant is able to defend itself against biotic and abiotic factors, such as heat, moisture and micro-organisms. 

Shading agents

Crops need light to grow. However, not every crop needs the same amount of light and some crops even need to be protected from too much light. If you don't do this, burning can occur. Royal Brinkman offers a wide range of exclusive screen products from our partner and supplier Hermadix. Chalk agents reduce the heat in the greenhouse by placing a layer of chalk on the greenhouse. In addition, chalk products reflect light, protecting the crop and keeping the greenhouse climate even. In addition to chalk, you will also find diffuse coatings in the range that diffuse the light over the crop. This limits the intensity of light over the crop, thus protecting the crop. A diffuse coating also ensures less stress on the crop, a low crop temperature in the upper leaf layers and a higher leaf temperature in the lower leaf layers. In order to clean the greenhouse cover at the end of the cultivation, Royal Brinkman has Removit in its assortment. Removit is a special screen remover that effectively removes Hermadix screens. 

Plant resilience 

Even after harvesting the product, it is very important in ornamental plant cultivation that the product is in optimal condition. To guarantee this, you can use pre-treatment agents or cut flower food from our supplier Chrysal. These agents ensure that flowers, buds and leaves wilt and/or fall out prematurely. Besides pre-treatment agents, you can also choose for cut flower food that can provide the cut flowers with some extra nutrition.
