Grodan - Improved Hugo Gro-Block 6"x 6"x 6" with hole (1 Block)
New and improved stone wool substrate with advanced wetting technology from Grodan
Introducing Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved, a product specifically engineered to deliver real results for your crops, developed by plant scientists, researchers, and top growers.
A core component of the "Precision Growing" philosophy, Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved with Advanced Wetting Technology allow you to cultivate more uniform and high-quality crops while using less water and nutrients.
The uniform distribution of water and nutrients throughout the block allows for more efficient use of the entire substrate volume. Full saturation of the blocks with no dry spots and improved EC control with less water is achieved in the rootzone due to the uniform, optimized wool resulting in a sustainable water and nutrient use. Improved “re-wettability” able to more easily increase water concentration in the substrate.
Key Benefits of Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved
The improved initial saturation and improved water distribution throughout the height of the blocks results in improved root growth, enhanced water holding capabilities and more stable EC behavior in the root zone. This makes it is easier than ever before to control your crop, with even less inputs, from propagation through to harvest.
Greater steering possibilities
Advanced technology used in Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved combined with the uniformity of WC and EC throughout the entire block provide better vegetative and generative steering. WC and EC can be adjusted more rapidly and efficiently. This offers additional assurances, such as in the case that the grower would need to adjust root zone WC or EC.
Roots making better use of entire substrate volume
Both the rooting-in and rooting-through plant processes have improved. Trials have repeatedly shown that the initial rooting-in phase in Grodan Gro-Block Improved occurs several days faster, speeding up the vegetative phase and time to harvest. The more effective rooting-through of the entire substrate volume leads to a visible increase of roots and thus, better water and nutrient uptake. Naturally, this results in enhanced plant health and productivity from start to finish.
Stronger, more vigorous plant development
Due to the better developed root system in Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved, the trial results showed improved plant growth, including larger plant size, greater stem thickness and bigger leaves. Ultimately, this can lead to higher yield, while at the same time the stronger, more vigorous plants show increased resistance to disease.
