Horticulture Week Podcast: ICL on growing media and making peat-free work

ICL
ICL

In this podcast with ICL technical sales manager Sam Rivers we discuss sustainable growing media, as part of a series of podcasts where Horticulture Week and ICL have talked about everything from adjuvants to IPM.

Rivers talks about what's available for growers and who is asking for what, the raw materials available, differences in nutrition, and other products which may need to be added to help boost plant quality, such as biostimulants.

He gives us the low down on the current situation regarding professional growing media and tells is how is the industry responding to market changes.

Sustainable growing media options demand is rocketing and Rivers talks about meeting that demand and the ingredients required to do that, as well as the nutrition in the mixes.
