Substrate EN-Volume Determination

If you order substrate from Horticoop, how do we ensure that you receive precisely what you have ordered every time? After all, it is rather difficult to measure the volume of substrate because of the diversity in coarseness, resilience and humidity.

We therefore apply the EN volume assessment in the factories at Lentse Potgrond and Slingerland Potgrond for raw material dosage and final volume assessment of your substrate orders.

The EN method is based upon filling and weighing a (20 litres) drum in keeping with standard procedure. This makes it possible to establish volumes in an exact and reproducible manner. This means that in our substrate production we can operate meticulously in terms of fertilising, application of lime, and humidity. This ensures that you can always rely on a consistent and homogeneous substrate; for each new batch!
