Growing tomato plants on a cultivation floor!

Growing tomato plants on a cultivation floor! Arjan Kouwenhoven’s company Fonte Verde Agro is located in Adradas, not far from Sao Paulo in Brazil: more than 1.5 hectares of the growing facility of two hectares are used for growing tomatoes. This is a glass greenhouse and that is unique for the South American country. ErfGoed levelled the land and installed the cultivation floors for growing the young tomato plants. Kouwenhoven opted for the ErfGoedFloor because of the local high temperatures and high light intensity, which meant a concrete floor would have become too hot. The second crop is now on the floor. Kouwenhoven: “Everything is positive so far: the floor looks neat, water distribution is uniform and the yield is very good.”
