The new Growbag ADVANCED: Bag to the future.

Modern, sustainable and high yield

Best cultivation properties

  • High air capacity and high pore volume ensure fast and strong rooting
    right from the start of cultivation
  • Optimal drainage and capillarity with excess irrigation
  • Very homogeneous moisture in the whole root zone during cultivation
  • Excellent rewettability

Available and efficient

  • Uncomplicated conversion from rock wool, perlite or coir to the Growbag ADVANCED
  • No need to pre-swell or rinse the grow bags for several days before cultivation starts
  • Reliable, year-round availability due to the high proportion of regional raw materials
  • Low weight for optimal delivery volume and efficient handling in the nursery
  • Water savings possible

Healthier plants

  • All raw materials with low salt content, therefore no salt stress at start of cultivation
  • Reduced cultivation risk due to the low salt content when compared to coir
  • Limited pH buffering allows easy and targeted pH control
  • In contrast to inert materials such as rock wool and perlite, the raw materials used in the
  • Growbag ADVANCED are microbially active and help to suppress plant pathogens
  • Reduced occurence of ‚crazy roots‘ caused by Agrobacterium rhizogenes
  • Less fungicide treatments against root rot since plants develop healthier and stronger overal

Modern and sustainable

  • Contemporary grow bag concept with low coir content
  • Complete elimination of rock wool, perlite and peat
  • High sustainability due to 100 % renewable raw materials
  • Use of a new, purely wood based constituent
  • All raw materials of the grow bag filling are fully compostable
  • Significantly reduced CO2 emissions compared to rock wool, perlite and coco

Far more practical than pure theory:
Real experience from practice

  • Excellent rooting with continuous formation of white, active roots
  • More root mass and significantly stronger, well-branched main roots
  • Overall stronger developed plants with faster shoot formation and
    higher cucumber yield per metre
  • Fungicide treatments against root rot was not necessary
  • Better and faster drainage
  • Compared to coir, more frequent and shorter watering intervals
    were ideal and a reduction of drip quantities was possible
  • No need to pre-swell or rinse the Growbag ADVANCED for several days
    before cultivation starts

blankComparison: Growbag ADVANCED versus grow bags with 100% coir, 2 plants per metre, ungrafted young plants, planting in August (Cultivation year 2021, Vrij Land- en Tuinbouwinstituut VLTI, Torhout, Belgium)

  • Plants in the Growbag ADVANCED developed more vigorously and rooting was considerably stronger
  • Faster initial development of tomato plants
  • Plants in Growbag ADVANCED showed more stress resistance in drought stress tests
  • Better flowering and higher fruit yields than in standard grow bags with perlite

The ideal combination:
Growbag ADVANCED and Log & Solve

Parallel to the Growbag ADVANCED, Log & Solve can be used when converting from grow bags with coir, perlite or rock wool.
Log & Solve is our innovative digital platform that centrally records all relevant crop data. Modern sensors continuously measure substrate moisture and nutrients directly in the grow bag and create automated status reports. Data on humidity, temperature and light already collected in the greenhouse can also be included. Commercial growers can improve the efficiency of their crops with Log & Solve.
