New state-of-art propagation plugs with Ellepot paper

Publication date: 08-10-2019

Van der Knaap has entered a strategic collaboration with Ellepot, the leader of the integrated paper pot system Ellepot. Together we introduce a new state-of-the art propagation plug, which will be produced with the patented air press technology developed by Ellepot.

The plugs are made of high-quality coco or peat mix wrapped with unique FSC certified environmentally friendly and degradable Ellepot paper. This is a great solution which will provide customers with products that simplify handling, optimise space, and ensure first-class rooting.

André Braam, Director of van der Knaap Group adds: “We see great potential for this technology and type of products. The demand is growing, and we want to offer these innovative plugs to the professional and hobby markets around the world. This partnership combines the greatest strengths of both companies. With our know-how of high quality coco and peat materials and Ellepot’s technology and extraordinary paper we can develop exciting new products for the future”.
