Substrate Lentse Potgrond

Lentse Potgrond is famous for its quality and consistency. By selecting our own production site, we ensure that growers can rely on an optimum start-up of their cultivations. Horticoop supplies a range of more than 1,500 Lentse Potgrond substrates.

A specialist develops a substrate in consultation with the grower, so that it is always tailor-made for the customer. We impose strict demands, not only on our production processes but on the raw materials as well. The logical consequence of this approach is the existence of our Hörle Torv facility, supplier of a unique raw material: peat.

A new substrate factory was opened in Katwijk (province of Noord-Brabant) in September 2009. And since the industry needs a homogeneous product, raw material dosage on the basis of EN volume was adopted during the design and construction stages of this modern and innovative substrate factory.

In order to keep the moisture content consistent throughout our deliveries, we use the Horticoop Water Value (HWV), which makes it possible to control water content, comparable to EC and pH.

Next to the quality and homogeneity of our substrate, the choice of packaging is also of paramount importance. The type of packaging should reflect the demands (or rather: working method) of the grower. We therefore always think along with the growers and deliver the substrate in the grower's preferred packaging. Lentse Potgrond is associated with, and has been certified by the Foundation RHP. In addition, Lentse Potgrond has been ISO-certified (9001) for quality standards and production.
