Dutch plant nursery invests in modern lava-container field

Dutch plant nursery Kwekerij De Bonfut focuses on the cultivation of hydrangeas and during autumn on deco chrysanthemums and poinsettia. After having rented a horticultural outdoor area for a number of seasons, the desire for a private outdoor area arose.

Meanwhile, they have an area of 22,800 m2, located next to the existing greenhouses of the nursery, outfitted as a lava-container field for small pot size hydrangeas. This container field runs fully independent, with its own water system and a Priva Compact computer for the control of all water technology.

The container field is divided into two equal parts by a concrete path, each side receiving its own nutritional program. This allows Kwekerij De Bonfut to provide aluminum sulphate for one half of the field, which ensures the beautiful blue color in hydrangeas. The other half of the container field is intended for pink and white hydrangeas. The first hydrangeas were placed on the field in week 25 and the field is expected to be full of hydrangeas in week 30.

In this project, Stolze has realized all the water and electro-technical installations that are being fitted in the newly built barn and it’s nearly completed. The water system consists of a mixing unit, control/supply of the two large irrigation pipes, frost protection system and silos. The electro-technical installation includes a Priva Compact 530 computer, sanding installation, distribution boards and power supplies.
