From "seeds to plate", producing plantlets and high quality compost - structural funding

The action From seeds to plate focused on the production of plantlets and aromatics. Farm Delsamme has set up a plantlets and aromatics production unit in order to meet its own needs but will also sell them. It also included the set up of a production of quality compost from the waste of the farm various activities.

Therefore, the farm has realized the necessary investments in infrastructures and equipments with the Interreg funding.

In order to be able to practice a correct culture rotation between three greenhouses for the fertilization of the ground, the farm purchased one new greenhouse and renovated the two existing ones.

One greenhouse was equipped with an irrigation system called “high tide, low tide”. This system allows a regular irrigation of the plantlets 7 days a week. Water supply is critical for raising plantlets. These ones are particularly fragile and need a precise irrigation.

A refrigerated van was purchased to allow a high quality delivery of plantlets

The farm has also built a compost slab to produce quality compost from the waste of its farm activities.  The tractor accessory purchased will allow a regular mix of the compost to obtain good quality compost that will be used in the culture of plantlets.
