Cultivating your young cucumber plants
The cultivation of young cucumber plants takes place year-round in the glasshouses of Hollandplant in and around Bergschenhoek. The plant requirements and types of cucumber plants vary per growing season.
The correct combination of substrate block or mat is essential to achieve optimal results. All our cultivated cucumber plants have a strong generative character while maintaining growth speed. This results in a fast first production process in the first cultivation phase and high overall production.
Raising tailor-made young plants
Before starting the cultivation process, we take all your requirements on cultivation, illumination, type of block, variety and type of transport into consideration.
Strict hygiene protocol
When cultivating young fruiting vegetables, we work with strict hygiene rules in regard to cultivation, staff, trays and trucks.
Growth progress updates
We will keep you informed of the growth during the cultivation process. You will receive a picture of your plants regularly, so you know exactly how the growth is progressing.
Growing strategy for cucumber plants
Variety and cultivation methods require another cultivation and irrigation strategy.
For cucumber, we offer specific products that are adapted to the
choice of variety and cultivation method. We deliver cucumber
'regular' or topped.
For transport, you can choose from flat in boxes or standing on trays.
Hoistable heating frames and lighting for cucumber plants
Our vision on the use of water, lighting, energy and plant protection products sets us apart.
Energy comes from our own geothermal source. To influence the growth of the young cucumber plants, we use special hoistable heating frames. We use the heating as efficiently as possible while making sure the heat is delivered at the right place.
The right lighting is also important. We grow cucumber plants under 7000 - 8000 lux.
