Aero NT

Omni Growing Solutions is offering a new plug product for young plant production, Aero NT. The plug is designed to hold its shape without the use of a wrapper. The product line has been in development in Germany for the last 10-12 years. Plugs are produced in a batch-mix system using a typical growing mix, but a binding agent is added to help the plugs hold together easily. Plugs are pre-dibbled and according to general manager Bill Maartense, plants have shown 20-25 percent shorter rooting time in tests.

Omni Growing Solutions, an independent offshoot of Dummen will be opening a production facility in Ontario in November. The plan is to serve primarily Dummen rooting stations next year, and to open things up to the larger grower audience the following year.
