AutoStix® with Obturo®
The AutoStix® technology in combination with Obturo® plugs ensure a special rooting process, which offers various benefits for growers: reduce complexity within the growing process, decrease labour force, and optimise the use of space in nurseries.
Currently there are two sizes of AutoStix® strips that can be filled with Obturo® rooting plugs. The use of Obturo® plugs in the strips offers the cuttings an ideal start in substrate which prevents shock during transplanting. It also offers a protected environment for the cuttings during transport and ensures a longer storability of the plants over a specific period.
Benefits of Obturo®
- Specifically developed to facilitate easy rooting, ensuring the very best growth results.
- The unique composition of the substrate makes it easy to rewet the plugs.
- Suitable for almost any crop, even acidophilic plants.
