The soilless cultivation of blueberries gives better yields in the first three years compared to soil cultivation. Soil is the biggest limitation to the success or failure of a blueberry plantation. For this reason, many farmers opt for soilless or hydroponic cultivation, a technique that offers greater productive performance and makes the investment profitable in the initial years.
Hydroponic cultivation makes it possible to grow independently of soil conditions, avoiding the deficiencies presented by clay soils, which have high pH values and high bicarbonate levels. In addition, blueberry plants grown in hydroponic come into production first, allowing you to maximise the crop from the first years of planting.
Another of its advantages is that it offers a more homogeneous production in terms of the quality and size of the fruit, and allows better control over pests and diseases, as well as other parameters such as hydration.
Projar has extensive experience in advising on and implementing soilless cultivation in the main blueberry producing countries. At its stand 10F12B at Fruit Attraction, it will present its portfolio of products for the cultivation of blueberries, as well as other products for the cultivation of raspberries, strawberries and blackberries.
