The Future is Blue (Enlarge)

Blueberry production and consumption has been increasing rapidly in recent years. Greenhouses and mainly tunnels are being used to extend the growing season and harvesting period.

Blueberries are traditionally grown in the ground. The soil should be well-drained, yet with sufficient moister holding capacity. Optimizing blueberry production requires a high level of control, a balanced air-to-water ratio in the ground or growing media, proper micro-irrigation and fertilization. All these can be achieved when using soilless technology in general and coco-coir in particular.

 

Pelemix, the world leader for coco coir based substrate and hydroponic solutions developed a special solution for the Soft Fruit in general and Blueberry in general.

Pelemix is a privately Israeli owned company with sales to 40 countries.

Pelemix has 8 manufacturing plans in Sri Lanka, India and Thailand in where the coco fibers are sources.

Pelemix’s ideal solution for blueberry production was developed by its R&D team in close cooperation with crop specialists and key blueberry growers.

The 3B Multi-Drain OpenTop System for blueberries has been created by combining the ideal volume of a specially formulated coco-coir blend and an innovatively designed Pelemix OpenTop bag.
