The new technology facilitates superior water and air management, which results in a better distribution of water and EC throughout the entire plug, resulting in better root formation and better, more uniform plant growth. The improved water distribution in the plug means that the moisture content decreases more evenly, so propagators can wait longer before starting the next irrigation cycle. The uniform water distribution gives less risk of peripheral effects in individual trays.
The larger volume offered by the plug gives higher absolute water content in the plugs leading to a lower irrigation frequency. For propagators this translates to sustainable and more efficient use of water and nutrients and lower costs
