Grodan Prestige is the ideal stone wool slab to steer the cultivation of tomatoes and cucumbers towards the right balance all year round.
Grodan Prestige is the ideal slab for tomato and cucumber growers who want rapid initial growth at the start and vegetative vigour in summer. The fine fiber structure combined with NG2.0 technology enables a rapid and large resaturation capacity. The crop can also be steered generatively if necessary. Prestige is the ideal slab to steer vigorous crops towards the right balance all year round.
- Rapid and complete rooting
- Optimal crop balance
- Easy and effective WC and EC control
- Single-year slab
- Vertical fiber structure
- Inert, hydrophilic fibers
Incredibly fast rooting after planting thanks to the open fiber structure of the Prestige slab. In addition, the homogeneous water distribution throughout the entire slab encourages the roots to grow up to the top of the slab. The extra stability means the slab can easily cope with several crops of cucumber per year.
Grodan Prestige, together with the Plantop propagation block, ensures a stable plant balance for the entire growing season.
NG2.0 is the successor of the Next Generation Technology and adds new benefits to the existing advantages. Water distribution is even more uniform and the crop utilises the total substrate volume better. Continual new growth of roots in both the block and the slab results in a healthier and more vigorous crop throughout the whole growing season. These benefits translate into higher yields, improved fruit quality and reduce the sensitivity of the crop to diseases. The technology is available in plugs, blocks and slabs.
