RHP cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on for con­tai­ner mulch

Effec­tive weed sup­pres­si­on

Our wood-based mul­ching mate­ri­al has now recei­ved the RHP pro­duct cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on scheme’s qua­li­ty mark. The high relia­bi­li­ty of our pro­duct in terms of crop growth has thus been inde­pendent­ly con­fir­med.

Rege­ling Han­dels Pot­gron­den (RHP) has exis­ted sin­ce 1963. We have the qua­li­ty of our pro­duc­ts tested accord­ing to the strin­gent cri­te­ria of this Dutch orga­ni­sa­ti­on – covering the ent­i­re value chain from raw mate­ri­als to pro­duc­tion faci­li­ties and the finis­hed pro­duct. This cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on now also gua­ran­tees con­sistent­ly high qua­li­ty and the high relia­bi­li­ty of our con­tai­ner mulch in terms of crop growth:

  • The pro­duct is con­sis­tent in tex­tu­re and free of impu­ri­ties;
  • It is ste­ri­li­sed, i.e. free from patho­gens affec­ting humans or plants;
  • Each deli­very is of the same high qua­li­ty;
  • The pro­duct sup­plied com­plies with agreed spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons.

RHP has, in a new modu­le, pre­cise­ly spe­ci­fied the pro­duct and pro­cess requi­re­ments for cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on of con­tai­ner mulch. In par­ti­cu­lar, this defi­nes both che­mi­cal and phy­to­sa­ni­ta­ry requi­re­ments. Inde­pen­dent inspec­tions by cer­ti­fier MPS-ECAS veri­fy and ensu­re con­sis­ten­cy of qua­li­ty.

Klasmann-Deilmann has under­go­ne cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on sin­ce the year 2000. We are awa­re of our cor­po­ra­te respon­si­bi­li­ty, which is why accep­ted cri­te­ria and tes­ting by inde­pen­dent bodies are important to us. “At the end of the day, what counts is that our custo­mers recei­ve reli­able pro­duc­ts,” says Josef Reh­me (Qua­li­ty Manage­ment).

Con­tai­ner mulch is a wood-based pro­duct. The only source mate­ri­al used is unt­rea­ted soft­wood from sustainab­ly mana­ged forests. It is now extre­me­ly well estab­lished as a covering for substrates used in con­tai­ners. Con­tai­ner mulch is effec­tive against weed and moss growth. As it forms an excel­lent pro­tec­tive lay­er, down­ward loss of mate­ri­al cau­sed by hea­vy rain and wind, or in tran­sit, is vir­tual­ly eli­mi­na­ted. It con­tains pig­ments that give it an ear­thy look; the­se are plant-tole­rant and eco­lo­gi­cal­ly safe.
