From 9 to 11 November 2022, Hortus will be an exhibitor (for the 12th time!) at the International Floriculture Trade Fair (IFTF). The IFTF is one of the leading floriculture fairs with exhibitors and visitors from all over the world. Many breeders, growers, wholesalers, suppliers and retailers will visit the fair to maintain existing relationships and develop new ones. At the IFTF, Hortus will present 3 innovative products out of our complete product range for you to discover.
For Hortus, the IFTF fair is a valuable event for a number of reasons:
At the IFTF we focus on presenting three innovative products; The Airmixer, Nano Trace Minerals and Fibercell Plug Paper from our new partner BCC.
Airmix for mixing fertilizers
Hortus developed the innovative Airmix pump. This pump is able to mix the fertilizers in fertilizer stock tanks easily and cost-effectively. One Airmix pump mixes 2 containers of 2200 liters each with air. Fertilizers are drawn evenly from the tanks and distributed evenly through irrigation systems, without sediment. The Airmix is easy to install and requires little maintenance, making it ideal for a wide range of growers and situations.
Nano trace minerals
Nano trace elements are an innovative way to strengthen plants, making them less susceptible to diseases and pests, improving their structure and producing increased yields per square metre. Additionally, the nano trace elements are sustainable in use.
AgroArgentum® is an NK-9-6 EC fertilizer which contains 1% silver nanoparticles that keep the plant with an active metabolism. AgroCyprum® is a copper EC fertilizer solution that contains 3% copper nanoparticles. AgroFerrum® is an iron fertilizer solution that contains 15% iron nanoparticles.
All these products have an optimized concentration of their ingredients and because of the reduced size of their components, are more bioavailable for the plants.
AgroCalcium® is a calcium EC fertilizer solution with the optimized concentration of all its ingredients. It contains 20% calcium, 1,5% magnesium and 1,5% silicon, made from micro fine ground rock flour and also thanks to the reduced size of its component, is more bioavailable for the plants.
For each cultivation there is a specific protocol how to use and combine the Nano Trace Elements in the best rates. The elements strengthen each other and with the correct dosage per element, the results will be optimal for your crop. Your plants and yield will benefit significant.
Multiple tests at growers worldwide have shown very positive results. Stronger crops which become more resistant and higher yields.
Fibercell Plug Paper from BCC
Our partner BCC is the ultimate and complete partner for paper based growing systems. They develop, produce, deliver, install and service customized complete solutions or standardized machines for growing all type of crops in the FiberCell system worldwide. At the IFTF we present Fibercell Plug Paper prime medium for horticultural use in plant propagation.
The Plug Paper Prime Medium, is suitable for crops with a longer propagation period, have a degradation time of 4 – 12 months and are certified (FSC, Rainforest Alliance)
The paper rolls in the Prime family are used by numerous forest and flower nurseries , like summer flowers and rose propagation, around the world, but is also suitable for other type of crops in other areas, like Pinus Radiata, Eucalyptus, Acacia, Coffee and Citrus.
