Grower Breakfast Wednesday 23rd October BNZ Pukekohe

Grower Breakfast Wednesday 23rd October BNZ Pukekohe

Ecomix Coco Substrates

 

You may have noticed recently several new suppliers have started advertising on the Grower2Grower e-magazine.  One of the products promoted is Ecomix coco substrates.  Martin Vadakkekuttu, is the Director of PRODOZ INTERNATIONAL PTY LTD (Ecomix Coco Australia/NZ).

On Wednesday the 23rd of October Grower2Grower will be hosting a growers' breakfast in Pukekohe at the BNZ Partners building with Martin giving a presentation on the benefits of using Ecomix Coco products.  Martin will point out the correct and robust process his company uses in manufacturing Coco to ensure growers receive top quality product.

During the farm tours at this year’s PCA I noticed the large volume of Coco substrates that growers are using.  Berry crops we visited using Coco, included blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.  I was quite flabbergasted by the amount of Coco substrates used.  It is a media that is increasing in popularity in this rapidly developing sector especially as growers’ transition from soil to protected cropping and substrates.  Like all things, not all coco is equal and making sure you have the best quality product is a key element for success.

Berry growers and vegetable growers are invited to attend this breakfast and presentation.  We are strictly limited to numbers for this event so please email stefan@grower2grower.co.nz if you are interested in attending.  This is a grower only breakfast.  This is a free event.

As an added bonus, I am pleased to announce that Peter Butler from the BNZ will have an update for growers on the state of the economy including interest rates.

 

Date for Breakfast: Wednesday 23rd of October 2019

Location: BNZ Partners Building Pukekohe,

Time: 8.00 am to 9.30 am
