Shortens production cycle

The increase in root mass  brought about by AQUATHERMAT® encourages a greater growth for propagation or finition potted crops and, therefore, a drastically shorter production time. Adjusting the production calendar accordingly with the accelerated growth of the crops with AQUATHERMAT®, will decrease heating costs since the start of the cultivation is done during a warmer period.
