Producing Exceptional Berries

NUTRITION

Growing strawberries requires a very scientific approach. Our nutritional specialists assess and measure fruit quality in regard to colour, firmness and taste on a daily basis to ensure good plant health and top production performance.

PLANT QUALITY

When it comes to producing great strawberries, plant quality is of utmost importance. Did you know; Growers have to replant all their strawberry fields on an annual basis and is therefore a crucial part of their business. 

SOIL GROWN

Fertile soil contains an optimal balance of macro and micro-nutrients together with microbial life to ensure bioavailability to the plant. Together with optimal photosynthesis levels results in large, flavoursome, and nutritious berries.
