Uniform, high-quality produce, year-round availability in high volumes, produced sustainably and according to the strictest environmental standards.
These market demands are challenges that Siberia BV is more than happy to meet. Since early 2016, various varieties of lettuce and other leafy vegetables have been cultivated in a hydroculture system in a greenhouse covering around nine hectares, located in Maasbree, North Limburg. Hydroculture is a system whereby vegetables are grown in biodegradable pots in cultivation gutters.
The entire process - from sowing to harvesting - takes place under controlled conditions, with everything under a single roof. Cultivating under optimal conditions reduces the time needed to grow the crops and lowers the energy costs per product. The plants receive precisely what they need to promote optimal growth. Nothing more and nothing less. The crops can be harvested at any moment of the day - offering flexibility and tailored to suit the specific market demand.
