LATERLITE AGRI

BENEFITS


A special Laterlite
AgriLaterlite is the Italian-made expanded clay designed specifically by Laterlite for flower-growing, horticulture and gardening which uses top quality and selected raw materials to obtain, besides the renowned advantages offered by Laterlite, also a very low salinity release.

Natural
AgriLaterlite does not contain organic substances, does not decompose, and is rot-free and parasite-free.

Easy to use
AgriLaterlite can be kept for an unlimited time, without ever changing. Supplied in bags it is easy to use, store, carry and dose.

Practical
AgriLaterlite is produced in two different grain sizes, 3÷8 and 8÷20; it is supplied in 50 liter plastic bags (20 bags per m3 , in pallets of 65 bags. Dry weight approx. 380 Kg/m3 (19 Kg/bag) for sizes 3÷8 and approx. 330 Kg/m3 (16.5 Kg/bag) for size 8÷20.

Specific pH
Its pH is between 6 and 7.

FIELDS OF USE


Mixed in the soil or as a draining layer or humidity preservation layer for hanging gardens, flower pots and plants in vases.
Filling up of surfaces for the cultivation of vase plants.
Arrangement of flower pots.
Hydroculture.

Hydroculture - AgriLaterlite is the ideal substrate for hydro-culture. The minimum level of salinity released assures the inertia of the substrate, primary condition for the proper operation of the system. It is also lightweight and easy to handle, it has moderate water retention and excellent porosity for air. The shape and the different sizes of the grains are such as to “bound” well and assure a good support to plants, even tall and heavy ones.

HOW TO USE


VASE PLANTS

Laterlite Agri, in peat substrates limits excessive water retention, enhances drainage and increases the porosity for the air, an essential factor for the proper growth of roots and plants; a humid but not wet soil limits the formation of rotten roots and parasite fungus. AgriLaterlite does not release any salinity and does not change the pH factor of the mixture, thanks to its low buffer power.

AgriLaterlite does not turn yellow, does not pack down, doesn’t change or decompose in time or due to humidity; it’s aesthetically nice to see. The quantities for the AgriLaterlite mixture with peat or the already prepared peat substrate, must be chosen by the flower-grower according to the plant, the peat, the irrigation times used in the greenhouse. Generally it ranges from 20% (1 part of AgriLaterlite every 4 of peat) to 40% (2 parts of AgriLaterlite every 3 parts of peat).


HANGING GARDENS
AgriLaterlite is the right product for creating lightened draining layers for plants and hanging gardens. In the mixtures with the cultivation soil, it assures lightness to the structure and a water and air reserve for the plants. AgriLaterlite is perfect for filling flower pots and boxes. It can be supplied with dumper trucks or tank trucks equipped for vertical pumping up to 30 m or horizontal up to 80÷100 m.


FLOWER POT ARRANGEMENT
AgriLaterlite has a pleasant aesthetical appearance, and has become a must for plants cultivated in vases. The brownish round (not spherical) granules are a natural finishing for flower pots and flower arrangements.


BOX FILLING
AgriLaterlite is used to fill boxes and assures a constant temperature, drainage, humidity level and no maintenance, especially when the roots stick out of the vase.


PLANTS IN GREEHOUSE CONTAINERS
The soil in the containers is subject in time to pressing due to its weight and the water. Adding AgriLaterlite significantly and permanently improves its porosity features for air and drainage, thus avoiding the suffocation of the roots and enhancing the overall
result. Furthermore, the soil, with 20-30% of AgriLaterlite, reduces the excessive weight of the containers, yet assuring the necessary
stability.
AgriLaterlite is also useful when moving plants from the container to the customer’s garden. A layer of AgriLaterlite on the bottom of the
hole assures drainage and the right level of humidity so the plants take root better.
