The success of this integrated approach has been demonstrated in various real-life projects worldwide. Plant Empowerment has gained valuable insights into how to grow healthy and resilient crops in an integrated and sustainable way. Heritage Farms, for example, is taking a holistic view of the optimal temperatures and humidity levels through the use of screening, better air quality and more air rotation, the right nutrients in the slab, and a better assimilate balance. And the results look very promising. They finally expect to complete a full ten-month crop cycle this year, putting them on track to achieve 30kg per m2. In fact, they hope to push through to October or November, which will be nearly a whole year since planting.

Healthy plants generate the highest possible yields

Over the past couple of decades, nutrition in high-tech crops has become largely dominated by synthetic fertilizers. This has enabled production levels to be continuously improved. But these production improvements have come at a price: the constant threat of pests and diseases. This initially led to the widespread usage of chemical crop protection agents in high-yielding crops. The recent trend towards more sustainable approaches – such as breeding varieties with natural resistances, or the use of integrated pest management – tackle the symptoms rather than the underlying cause: weakened plant health. So what exactly is ‘plant health’?
