An expert raspberries grower sees plants double in size with ALVÁTECH
A Portuguese raspberry expert, growing export-quality berries for a well-known global berries giant, suffered from high salinity levels in the substrate used in his greenhouse and high levels of carbonates which clogged the drippers. The hard and saline water affected both the grower’s yield and quality of fruit which must attain the high standard set by the client.
The grower installed an ALVÁ device in order to reduce the salinity levels, increase flower growth and improve production.
Immediately upon installation the ALVÁ device started leaching the salt to the drainage system ensuring more water is available to the plant for a longer period after each irrigation. The treated water also improved the level of humidity in the substrate and the levels of Nitrogen, Potassium and Magnesium creating better conditions for the plants to grow and improving roots development.
