Tom Muller

Nursery manager – Rapo BV

“I am happy with the results of the Plantsauna, it helps us have healthy plants and I see good root development after the treatment.”

Product We Used

One Plantsauna unit. Powered by a 16-kW oil steam boiler.

Our Solution

Moleda’s Plantsauna is an excellent choice for this sterilization task, because of its reliable and stable performance.

After the customer heard of our product from the Fresh Forward group, they were interested in using one in their own production of strawberry plants.

Unlike with the traditional CATT treatment, the customer saw that the root growth was way better after the treatment with the Plantsauna system. Also, the customer has the advantage of doing the sterilization treatment at his own location, without moving the plants to another location, thus being more flexible in his own planning.

They effectively treat about 3,5 million plants per year in the Plantsauna.

Our Results

  • Healthy plants
  • Flexibility in sterilization process, easy at my own location
  • Good root development
