Faster installing with the Bato meter trough

Joost van Oers and Rien van de Bighelaar: “This meter trough is suitable for strawberry cultivation both under glass and table-top. We find that flexibility and plant density is the greatest advantage of this trough. This year, we have 9 or 11 plants per trough, depending on the size of the plants. We have an ideal level for rooting, water distribution and fertilizing due to the height of the trough. Because the trough is narrow, we save space with ground pots and still have our wide harvest path. The trough also goes through the filling machine two at a time. Teardown and fixing up the greenhouse also goes faster and we have been able to replace our irrigation stakes with in-line irrigation tubing. The flexibility and savings in labor make this trough an investment for the future.”
