Pepper trial at UNISA Roodenpoort

The first of May Crop Supplies SA, Delphy and Koppert SA started a pepper trial at UNISA Roodenpoort. The peppers will be transplanted as a seedling into propagation cubes 10*10*7 cm of cocos. Than, when plants are ± 30 cm high, the plants will be placed on grow bags with cocos.

We use 2 different types of cocos; 100% coarse and a mix of 50% cocos fine and 50% cocos coarse. 50% of both type of grow bags is new and the other 50% is used last year as well so this is the second season.

The tunnels will be heated, so in fact it starts as a winter crop that will last till ± April 2018. The climate will be managed with a Priva computer.

We will keep you up-dated about the growth and the results.

A small introduction!

Hello Growers in South Africa!

We would like to introduce René to you.

ReneRené Zwinkels underwent a education at the Realm Middle Horticulture school in the Netherlands. After finishing his education, René worked for a few growers, especially as manager.
In 1983, René became a independent grower of especially Lilies, Irises, Gladiolus, but also pot plants for over 12 years.

After being a independent grower, René was active as a adviser/salesman of biological en chemical plant protection, for a couple of years. Finding plagues an diseases was daily work for René.

In the year 1999, René made his introduction within de potting soil industry. Since that day, René spend most of his time within this industry, and he still does.
When working with potting soil, he got in contact with plastic pots and trays, which he can offers them to you.

René is a real “allrounder”, he isn’t chained to one specific cultivation group, but knows a lot of many different groups; vegetables, soft fruit, cutting flowers, pot plants, bedding plants and shrubs.

René was also active in the development of cutting mixtures and plugs where he earned his stripes.

On the 1st of may 2013, René started the company Crop Supplies together with Boudewijn Olsthoorn. Since then, René is for multiple weeks per month to be found in South Africa.
