Look back at the Open Day in the German horticultural trial station

Over the past few weeks, the Open Days have once again taken place at the Teaching and Research Institutes for Horticulture. Interesting presentations shed light on various areas of our industry, such as the effectiveness of plant strengthening agents. In Veitshöchheim, Mr. Köckert called for the old favourites to be thrown out of the product ranges - a piece of advice that was certainly taken on board with the wealth of information on the new varieties that were presented at all the locations and could be seen on the fantastic test fields.

The test fields are also open at the LVGs over the summer and help in the search for the "egg-laying woolly milk variety", as Mr. Koch so charmingly put it in Heidelberg.

Many thanks to Dresden, Erfurt, Heidelberg and Veitshöchheim!

Trial Field and Open Days 2024

We had a great time at our Customer Days 2024 with lots of interested customers, advice on varieties and a collegial exchange of experiences. Thank you very much for your visit, which contributed to this special day!

Soil tests

The coldest weeks are behind us, the goods for the main season in April and May are mostly potted. Now it is important to choose the right crop and also to keep an eye on the nutritional status. Soil analyses are a good way to check the fertilization that has already taken place and to take countermeasures if necessary. Our diagnostic laboratory pac® biotec is the new home of the Saxon Special Laboratory for Horticultural Soils since October 2020 and is happy to examine your substrate sample as well!

  • The basic analysis includes pH, salinity, volume weight, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
  • In addition, a magnesium and chloride determination, as well as a determination of the organic substance (humus) are also offered.
  • Upon request, we evaluate their soil samples and provide fertilizer recommendations.

This way you know if everything is fine - the plants optimally supplied and for the environment as little impact as possible.

Your contact person and contact for sending in the soil samples is Dr. Eberle, 0049 35248 399140, d.eberle@pac-elsner.com
