Jiffy Introduces European Substrates to U.S. Market
Jiffy has announced it is introducing its finest European quality peat substrates in the United States. The company now offers 26 mixes formulated to fit different crops.
As we all know, annuals have different rooting needs than vegetable seedlings. Choosing the right Jiffy substrate helps give plants a healthy start.
All Jiffy mixes are fine-tuned in close cooperation with worldwide customers — providing top-quality substrates, tailor-made to fit growers’ needs. Thanks to the company’s global experience, Jiffy can offer solutions for a wide range of plant types and growing styles. The new range includes specialist mixes for annuals, vegetables, potted plants, soft fruits and cannabis.
Using sustainable resources and bio-based materials, such as peat, coconut coir and pulp, Jiffy abides by the highest industry standards in order to safeguard the environment and supply growers with the finest products.
European peat is harvested in milled peat and block harvested fractions, as well as longer fiber types, offering the optimal combination of moisture-holding capacity and porosity for all pot sizes and crop types. By combining peat and unique manufacturing methods, Jiffy substrates allow growers to decrease irrigation intervals. Save time and money, while growing strongly rooted, thriving plants.
Jiffy’s two cutting-edge European manufacturing sites follow RHP guidelines for harvesting and processing substrates.
Treffex, located in Estonia, is a state-of-the-art mixing facility that enables Jiffy to supply fresh Baltic peat mixes year-round. Thanks to white and black peat screening lines, and the broad raw material availability, high-quality substrates are produced. Innovative peat products comply with all environmental standards.
1Plant in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands, is an ultra-modern factory for substrates and potting soils. The most advanced technical processes are used for sifting, mixing, transport, processing and storage of raw materials. Combined with a unique range of raw materials and strategic location, this facility enables Jiffy to supply the best substrates even to the most remote locations.
