Quality differences in COCO substrate In 1998 the popularity of coco rose enormously causing a shortage of its raw material. As the leading potting mix and substrate producers could no longer ignore the product, they started to use raw material from new sources without considering the quality aspects. This resulted in huge crop damages, especially in France and the Netherlands. In order to prevent delivery problems in times of high needs CANNA went overseas and made substantial investments in local infrastructure. Concrete bunkers were buil ...

Calcium occurs throughout the entire plant. It is used for many processes in the plant, however, calcium is most important for the growth process. It has a regulating effect in the cells and contributes to the stability of the plant. Plants have two transportation systems at their disposal: the xylem vessels and the sieve vessels. Most nutrients can be transported via both systems, however, for calcium this is not possible. Since calcium can be transported almost exclusively via the xylem vessels, it is an element that d ...

Phosphorus plays an important role for all living organisms and is an essential nutrient element for plants and animals. It has a key position in the combustion processes of the cell, and in the total energy transfer of the plant. It is also a 'building block' of the cell walls, the DNA, and all sorts of proteins and enzymes. For young plants, the presence of phosphate is indispensable; about 3/4 of the phosphorus consumed during a plant’s life cycle is absorbed in the first quarter of its life. The largest concentrations of phosphorus are found in the developing parts o ...

Magnesium is an indispensable element for a.o. plants. In plants, it represents a building block for chlorophyll (leaf green), and therefore, it is essential for photosynthesis. At the same time, magnesium plays an important role in the energy transfer. Together with calcium, it is also a component of tap water, influencing water hardness. Inorganic magnesium fertilisers are produced using the same bases that are used to produce potassium fertilisers. About magnesium in short ...

Iron is a vital element for plant life. Iron has a number of important functions in the overall metabolism of the plant and is essential for the synthesis of chlorophyll. In general, iron is poorly absorbed by the plant. It can only be sufficiently taken up by the roots in certain forms and under proper conditions. Soil seldom contains too little iron, but it is possible that forms of iron that can be absorbed by the plant are lacking. The absorbency of iron is strongly dependent on the pH. Ordinarily, there is sufficient iron present in absorbable form in acidic soils. ...

Nitrogen is one of the important elements a plant needs. It is an important part of proteins, chlorophyll, vitamins, hormones and DNA. Because it is a component of enzymes, nitrogen is involved in all enzyme reactions and plays an active role in the plant’s metabolism. Nitrogen is mainly absorbed by the plant in the form of nitrate and ammonium. It can also be absorbed via small organic molecules. It is important that the balance between nitrate and ammonium is correct in the feeding otherwise the pH in the rhizosphere (environment immediately sur ...

Let’s face it, this is the mantra of too many growers. There are so many self identified ‘boosters’ out there it would take a super computer to count them. The problem is, only a few are true metabolism boosters, which is what a booster should be. Most are either additional nutrients, organic compounds , or simply an extract of someone’s old socks! One company we know actually markets three different products that contain exactly the same ingredients, only they changed the names to protect the inn ...

What is pH? pH (short for potential Hydrogen) is the measurement of acidity and its opposite, alkalinity in a solution. Neutral pH is 7.0 pH. Acidity measures below seven pH (7.0pH) with alkalinity measuring above it (7.0pH). Why is it important to measure pH? It is important to maintain a hydroponic nutrient solution at a pH level where the elements in the nutrient solution are consistently available to the plant. If the solution is too acidic or too alkaline it can cause ...

What is conductivity? Conductivity (measured in ppm, EC, TDS, CF) is the total soluble salts contained within a liquid solution. Pure water does not contain salts, so it has a conductivity measurement of zero. By adding soluble elements to the water, electricity is able to move through the solution giving it a conductivity rating. So why is it important? Using hydroponics as an example, different crops grow well at different levels of nutrient strength (Electrical Conductivity - EC ...

Standing in the fertilizer aisle of a garden or farm store, you are faced with a dizzying array of fertilizer options, many with a series of three numbers like 10-10-10, 20-20-20, 10-8-10 or many other combinations of numbers. You may be asking yourself, “What do the numbers on fertilizer mean?” These are NPK values, which leads to the next question of, “What is NPK?” Keep reading to learn more about fertilizer numbers and NPK.

Hydroponic cultivation systems are tremendously popular, and are likely to become even more so. Hydroponic systems are suitable for both small and large-scale use. Direct control options mean higher yields where correct nutrients are used. With the current sophistication of measuring equipment and technological advancements in the industry as a whole, the future appears bright. Hydroponic systems have even been developed to provide astronauts with fresh food during expeditions to Mars. The word hydroponics comes from the Greek words hydro (water) and ponos (to work) and literally ...

One satisfied customer stated: “Although I’ve already grown a few harvests, I must honestly say that I still haven’t got a clue about growing. With potting mix everything always went wrong. First, too much water, and then too little. But that’s history since I’ve been using CANNA COCO. I’m the perfect example that coco sub­strate is idiot proof.” ...
