Field crops and protected agriculture

Open-pit agriculture

  • hydroFLAKES® can be used in open pit crops, either directly in groove, bag or pot.
  • It can be used mixed with soil, or mixed with other or other substrates.
  • It can be incorporated from the beginning of cultivation, or into plants and trees that are already being produced, depending on the technology that the producer is occupying.
  • hydroFLAKES® can be applied in the groove that makes the plow together with the fertilizer in proportions of approximately 70% fertilizer and 30% hydroFLAKES®, so that when the plant begins to grow, its roots enter the fertilizer and hydroFLAKES®.
  • For trees to be planted, at the bottom of the hollow where it is to be planted, hydroFLAKES is placed®. If you then want to improve the tree, you can place it with holes, to interact directly with the root.
  • Your agronomist, according to the growing variety, will need to define the ideal amount of hydroFLAKES® to be used on a case-by-case basis.
  • Some species of fruits and vegetables, in which hydroFLAKES can be used® in open pit crops are: avocado, citrus, berries, peppers, cucumbers, agave.
  • It can also be used for floriculture.
  • The high water retention capacity of 60% and its aeration capacity of 38% allows the roots of plants to have significant growth with well-spread oxygen, and improving the absorption of nutrients.
  •  hydroFLAKES® is successfully used by blueberry producers in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, in open pit pot cultivation, where it has been found that productivity increases by up to 100% using only hydroFLAKES® compared to its usual mixture of coconut fiber, perlite and peat.

Protected agriculture

  • Greenhouse cultivation is one of the places where hydroFLAKES® can have the greatest impact, because of the more homogeneous conditions that can be achieved compared to the open sky.
  • It is the perfect growing medium for plant growth in all their stages of development, from nurseries to greenhouses.
  • It is ideal for hydroponic cultivation, although it can be used mixed with other substrates to improve its water retention.
  • It is used for greenhouse production in vegetables, fruits, flowers.
  • Mainly for the cultivation of tomato, pepper, cucumber, berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries), fig.
  • The results of its use in greenhouse include:
    1. Reduction in water use
    2. Reduction in energy costs
    3. Reduction in maintenance operations
    4. Better rooting and development of plants from their earliest stage
  • Under optimal conditions of use, productivity increases of up to 30% more can be achieved than in plants using normal mixing of soils and/or substrates, as well as savings of up to 50% in the use of irrigation water.
