Tonton Buxus sees the benefits of the Ekote controlled-release fertilizers as complementary fertilizer for openfield cultivation of ornamental crops. The 'Faulkner’ Buxus variety keeps its green colour throughout the cultivation season thanks to fertilization with Ekote controlled-release fertilizers.
Since 2008, Tonton Buxus has been a household name in Buxus cultivation. Ton Manders’ company in Beek en Donk sells Buxus in many shapes and sizes. A well-planned fertilization policy is essential to the cultivation of our Buxus plants,’ explains Ton Manders. ‘We noticed that the “Faulkner” variety in particular lost its lush, green colour towards the end of the cultivation season. By working closely together with Ekompany’s Jo Slijpen, we investigated whether this could be prevented by using Ekote controlled-release fertilizers.
