Lucky Plants uses our test fields. Curious to find out which crops they are growing at Agropolis? Read all about it here!
Lucky Plants sells coconut substrate on the one hand, and their SmartyCoir (patent pending) transplanting and growing system on the other hand. The latter allows growers to save time and money when repotting their plants, however large or small their crops are. The Durbak family has been active in the agriculture sector for twenty years, so they know how important efficiency is when setting up a (new) greenhouse. Labour costs are on the rise around the world, and maintaining production levels has become a major challenge for lots of farmers and growers as a result.
Transplanting plants (e.g. blueberries, cannabis, raspberries or blackberries) is an important process that requires lots of energy, time and physical labour. Lucky Plants seeks to minimise the time spent on this process, without reverting to complicated and expensive machinery.
“At the moment, we’re renting a business unit at Agropolis in which we manufacture and store our products. Our test field at Agropolis covers 3.5 ha, and we use it to test our products on various plants and crops. We’ll soon be launching SmartyCoir on the market, so it’s an exciting time for us! It’s all set to be a user-friendly and effective product that will transform agriculture into a less cost-intensive and more attractive profession”, Lucky Plants’ Uliana Durbak concludes.
