“Valent Pepper Twine is twine of top quality”

- Rob Moors, Pepper Grower -

When the life of your crop is literally hanging by a thread, quality should not be an issue. Pepper grower Rob Moors tested Royal Brinkman's new Valent Pepper twine in 2020 and now uses it on his entire 19 ha. "It is strong and does not stretch, so the rows are tight from start to finish. That works well and prevents damage and loss of quality."

Rob Moors from The Netherlands is always willing to try something new. That was also the case when his account manager at Royal Brinkman asked him to try out a new twine before the start of the previous crop. "It had been specially developed for peppers, chillies, cucumbers and eggplants," he recalls. "Valent Pepper was supposed to stretch even less and handle a higher load than the usual twine for peppers, to be easy to handle and a little more economical. Well, I thought: okay, let's use it in practice to see if this is the actual case."

  • Experiences Kwekerij Moors

    Under the motto 'first see, than believe', the grower applied the new wire in a few plant rows and indeed, it did not budge during cultivation. Even on the hottest summer days, when lesser quality wire can stretch a bit and cause the plants to hang more in the path (with a greater chance of damage during work), all the plants stood neatly in line.

     "You have to be able to trust twine blindly and that comes at a price. But, Valent Pepper twine costs less than I was used to and that was the deciding factor. According to the specifications, I now have absolute top quality for a great price. I don't need to know much more.

  • Development of Valent Pepper Twine

    Crop Rotation Specialist Martin Meuldijk of Royal Brinkman was involved in the development of this exclusive product, on which not only the producer but also three growers and an independent expert worked together. What makes this twine so special, apart from its competitive price?

    The specialist: "It is composed of two types of high quality plastic and two components for UV protection. It is strong and has a very high stretch point. Flexibility is also a requirement: depending on the method of cultivation, there are up to 70.000 pepper stalks on a hectare and you have to tie each twine manually twice. Valent Pepper is at the top of it's weight class."  

    "Valent Pepper Twine is unique in its weight class."
