Prestige Award in “Transportation, Manufacturing and Processing"
The Gala des prestiges honoured the region’s businesses that stood out in various categories, but also in six special awards, including Employer of the Year and Business of the Year. Berger came away with the Prestige Award “Transportation, Manufacturing and Processing” Company. Co-CEOs Mélissa and Valérie Berger were surprised, but are sincerely touched by this recognition, and particularly by the unique 2020 nomination process.
Growing Mix Advice for Perennial Productions
The first function of growing media is to provide support for the plant. In other words, it anchors the plant in place. It also needs to create an environment where roots can thrive. Growing media typically consists of a blend of ingredients with different physical and chemical characteristics. This combination of materials creates a structure designed to provide porosity (air space) as well as water and nutrient-holding capacity for plant root uptake. There is no perfect universal perennial mix. However, by reviewing the particularities of your environment and your production strategies, you can help you select the most appropriate mix for you. Find out about the ingredients used to make growing media for perennials, the factors to consider to select the right mix and much more
Hidden Costs of Making Your Own Growing Mix
The selling price of crops has not drastically risen over the past decades, but the cost of everything else has increased at a much faster pace. Growers have been very good at optimizing their production in order to maintain decent margins in spite of the increasing expenses for transportation, labour, equipment, chemicals and much more, including growing media. When you are looking at ways to cut down on your production costs, producing your own growing mix may seem like an attractive way to save some money, especially for large-scale growers. It certainly appears to have fewer implications than molding your own containers or manufacturing your own water-soluble fertilizers.
