Polystyrene sheets for sale
We are installing gutters for our last 3 sections of capsicum in Mokai and with that our Polystyrene becomes obsolete.
As they have been used for capsicums and have been covered with a plastic sheet, there is very little to no chance of it being contaminated with viruses or fungi. Measurements are 1 m long, 20 cm wide and 1 cm high, some of them are 1 cm high on one side and 0.5 cm on the other long side. They are ideal for free draining of the slab and insulates the slab from the cold floor.
The sheets are basically for free though transport costs from Mokai must be paid, unless they are picked up from our site in Mokai. There are between 400 and 500 sheets on a pallet, and transport from Mokai to Pukekohe would be around $60 per pallet.
There are about 80 pallets available, which would cover 4.5 ha greenhouse.
