Many minitubers minimises the chance of mistakes

April 2024

For the partnership of father and son Anton and Frank de Schutter from Vierhuizen, the annual crop of 250,000 minitubers from their own greenhouse has been the basis for the cultivation and supply of high-quality S material for three years now. The fact that this means one crop less, and that the multiplication fields are bigger, which in turn need more accurate care, greatly reduces the chance of mistakes. What also plays a role is the method of cultivation, which the partners developed for the minitubers three years ago together with Timo ter Voort of Living Foods. Thanks to the simple, low-cost technology of the selected hydroculture system, they are able to harvest a great many tubers per square metre in a profitable way.
