Our contribution to sustainability – More value by #sustainability
We would like to contribute to a better future, both for the environment and future generations. That is why we have decided to focus on sustainability. Think of our closed water cycle, genetics (Paradiso) where the amount of growth regulators (PGR) is minimal and bee-friendly products such as Campanula from Addenda.
Less growth regulators with Paradiso
Compared to other Pimula acaulis, Primula Paradiso needs fewer growth regulators (PGR) to maintain its compact habit. Thanks to its genetics, acaulis remains naturally compact. Because Paradiso requires less PGR, the environment is burdened less, and it is also a smaller burden for the grower’s wallet!
All flowering plants attract insects, but one plant is a better food source than the other. Addenda Campanula (Ambella & Adansa) has a good score in this area compared to other plants. With Campanula Ambella or Adansa in the garden or planter you create a bee-friendly environment.
100% closed water cycle
In our new PlantXperience we use a “100% closed water cycle”. We use the same water as much as possible in our cultivation, which means we are largely independent of non-renewable natural resources. With the separate recirculation of recipes and feeding schedules, we have managed to reduce our use of fertilizers by half!
Switch to biological means
Both in Tanzania and in Wilp, we have been working on integrated crop protection for years. Together with our suppliers we work on better and efficient use of biological crop protection. We are continuously working to reduce our footprint even further.
Combination LED and SON-T lighting
Assimilation lighting is present in the production departments, a combination of LED lamps and SON-T lamps. Thanks to this combination we can save energy.
Plans for our future solar park
We are currently working on the plans for a future solar park on our site. If the park is actually realized, we are able to generate our required amount of energy ourselves.
