Haygrove substrate systems are available in single, double or triple row configurations. A single or double drain gutter collects run-off at the end or in the middle of the system.
The Haygrove Single Row Substrate System enables faster picking due to the layout of the system within the tunnel. Also, the picking height can be bespoke, depending on the height of pickers.
The Haygrove Double Row Substrate System can be fixed or telescopic.
The telescopic option overcomes frost vulnerability and crop lateness. It can be lowered for overwintering plants and securing maximum earliness of crop to pick in spring. Prior to picking, the system can be lifted to provide the huge benefits of picking the crop at table height.
The fixed option enables growers in warmer temperatures, where lowering and lifting are not required.
The Haygrove Triple Row Substrate System combines the steel gutter double and single row designs into a high intense multi-layer system.
This system is ideal for growers in mid latitude regions with high light levels, so shading is avoided. Using different strawberry cultivars can enable growers to prolong the picking season.
The Haygrove Ground Level Substrate System is designed to provide mechanisation with low labour costs and enable growers to pursue early and late season fruit.
This system is set up at ground level and designed to hold channels of bulk substrate media without the costs of handling trays or bags.
The Haygrove Substrate Bed Maker machine creates the ideal system to make the transition from soil to substrate production. The formation of the bed incorporates a furrow for either loose growing medium or a trough to sit in.
The advantage of keeping to a bed-type system is that the earth’s thermic energy helps insulate the roots, therefore bringing the picking time more in line with traditional soil grown strawberries.
