Plantop NG2.0 is the new standard in stone wool blocks for the propagation of vegetable crops. The NG2.0 technology provides rapid, effective water and nutrient distribution in the blocks. This guarantees maximum utilisation of the substrate volume and promotes fast, healthy development of young plants. Plantop NG2.0 is the solid foundation for a top propagation and growing performance.
Grodan Plantop is extremely versatile and perfect for growing tomatoes, sweet peppers, cucumbers and eggplants.
Plantop is the ideal block for propagators who either aim for compact, generative plants or for more vegetative plants, with a well developed, active root system throughout the entire block. The block can be used with all crops and in the most common growing conditions.
• Optimal steerability of water content
• Strong, controlled plant development
• Root development through the entire block
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 plug, block and 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.
