Over 230 hectares of seed
Farmed by WEBIDOO
Over 25,000 square meters of greenhouses guard and nourish our plants: our greenhouses,
at the forefront of heating and ventilation systems , they are coated with a double plastic layer ,
with the trasparency necessary to guarantee the right amount of light and temperature .They are all equipped with an irrigation system with mobile, automated and timed bars . Every year we market about 20 million seedlings, including :
• TOMATO (frank ed grafted)
• SWEET PEPPER
• AUBERGINE (frank ed grafted)
The process starts from sowing ,
carried out automatically by means of modern suction machines. The seed (one at a time), selected and placed in the peat cake, is covered with a thick layer of vermiculite, a mineral silicate of aluminum, iron and magnesium, necessary as a water retainer, a carrier of nutrients such as potassium andmagnesium and able to reduce the incidence of fungal diseases on seedlings.
Once ready, the peat panettoncini are placed in the germination chambers: then, once the small plant has been checked, they are placed in the greenhouses, for natural growth. Right hygrometric parameters, temperature and adequate nutrients are the necessary ingredients for growth to be perfect and regular. The seedlings are treated, cleaned and arranged every day, until they are ready to be put on the market and, consequently, planted.
