The Future of Substrates
Climate change is causing water scarcity, decline of arable land and extreme weather conditions. All this affects food production.
To meet the challenges of the 21st century, the amount of growing media will need to increase by 332% over the next 30 years.*
The future of substrates depends on us to look at how we are using our materials and resources throughout their lifecycle and find ways to optimise and reduce. At the same time, we need to shift to other raw materials as growing media, which needs to happen safely.

Collaboration is the key
Collaboration and transparency are key to the future of growing. We are working closely with growers, research institutes, technology companies, universities and more so we can #GrowTogether.
