BVB SUBSTRATES

The Blueberry substrates from BVB Substrates are tailor-made and produced to fit the exact needs of the grower. Our Sales Advisors can advise the best solutions depending on for example the demands of the crop, water quality, cultivation and irrigation methods, preferences of the grower, or sustainability requirements.

At BVB Substrates we have been developing and producing blueberry substrates from the nineties of last century. Starting with peat based mixtures and later on with the addition of pinus bark, this has finally lead to the

introduction of the peat-coir-perlite mixtures in 2008. This became the worldwide standard for professional blueberry production in containers.

  • Experiences already of a stable growing media for 12 years in the same 25 liter pot. The first pots were planted in 2008 and still performing well in for more than 13 years.
  • High knowledge about innovative raw materials. Increase the air content and easy available water percentages during the crop.
  • This mixture has a very high porosity which is finely divided throughout the whole substrate. This porosity ensures enough oxygen for the roots at all times, in combination with a high water availability. These characteristics lead to a fast development of a very intensive root system.

Innovation: Lowering footprint of our blueberry substrates with better technical performances. The results are there, the optically fine structure of our new innovative raw material Accretio offers the ideal space to develop a blueberry root system. The homogeneous fine structure ensures an easy an very fast root development. It is a very easy spongy substrates with a good structure stability, a much higher easy available water percentage and a higher air content than the traditional blend. When the new blend drains out, there is enough oxygen for the roots very quickly. Further detailed report on request.
