New Products Designed to Protect the Quality of Plants During Transportation
Oasis Grower Solutions is offering a new slate of products designed to protect the quality of plants during transportation and ensure the best possible consumer experience. The system includes Oasis HydraPad, Floralife Transport Paper, and EthylBloc technology truck treatments and sachets.
• Oasis HydraPad is an absorbent substrate designed to provide moisture to potted plants. It provides a hydration source during transportation, as well as for times when plants need to go without watering for an extended duration.
Available in three different sizes (2-inch, 3-1/2-inch, and 5-inch squares), the HydraPad makes water available to plants without sloshing and dripping, and avoids plant drowning. The product helps provide extra assurance of the plant quality after it is beyond the grower’s care.
• Floralife Transport Paper is a specially designed postharvest waxed tissue that is used for transporting fresh cut flowers and potted plants. The paper is impregnated with compounds that react when exposed to relative humidity above 40%. Designed to fit most commonly used shipping boxes, the paper sheets measure 10 inches by 40 inches. The transport paper can be used effectively in both refrigerated and non-temperature controlled shipments.
• Floralife EthylBloc technology inhibits the negative impact that ethylene has on crops, such as flower, bud, and leaf drop, leaf yellowing, and premature flower aging. Designed for use by all segments of the floral and nursery industries, EthylBloc technology protects cut and potted flowers, foliage plants, and bedding flowers and plants, helping them to stay vibrant. EthylBloc technology is available in truck treatments and sachets.
“Our transportation system of products is formulated to protect plants on their last leg of the plant journey to the consumer,” says Jeff Naymik, Global Marketing Manager for Oasis Grower Solutions. “Our innovative technologies for plant transportation ensure that the end consumer is delighted.”
These three products complement Oasis’ lineup of plant protection materials that cover the entire plant journey. Other Oasis products include foam medium for tissue culture, plant propagation Rootcubes, Terra Plug, Fertiss, PlantPaper, Horticubes, Oasis Easy System, hydroponic fertilizer, Soax wetting agent, disease control, and greenhouse cleaners.
