The 2019 Fruit Focus was well organised and well attended. People were in the mood to discuss new ideas and improvements to existing systems. With the political uncertainty in the UK our focus needs to be on doing what we have, but better. Attention to dripper uniformity and longevity is one of the key aspects that Ripple Aquaplast specialise in. With our team working in Scotland as well as the rest of the UK, checking outputs over a period of time is clearly important in producing a consistent crop. No longer can farms just sit back and hope that a 15 year old dripper is going to work as well as it did in year one.
Added to this is the revolutionary HPNow unit which allows H2O2 to be produced on site in safe concentrations – 150ppm – to be injected into the irrigation system at between 2-4ppm. It’s so simple and the interest from many growers across the soft fruit market place was much greater than even we thought would happen! We must have at least 20 follow ups to farms who have algae, pathogen or bioslime issues who are looking for a simple, smart and safe solution.
It was great to see so many people in the Kent sunshine and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their business in 2019 and look forward to pushing forward for the rest of the year and into next year
