Great germination, higher profits
Jiffy Pellets are an open-wall, net container and medium all in one. They are easy to work with, economical to ship (being supplied as lightweight, highly compressed, dry discs) and they transplant well, either into larger containers, or directly into the ground.
Propagating seeds and cuttings or tissue culture with Jiffy Pellets has a number of clear advantages for the professional grower. You can consistently record higher and faster levels of in-pot germination thanks to the uniform growing in Jiffy Pellets, consistent quality, means consistent results. Your plant yields will be higher as seedlings do not have to be removed from the container, the pellet eliminates root disturbance, and simply planted into the nest growing stage without transplant shock. These shorter growing process cycles also mean considerable labor-savings and water-use reduction. Jiffy Pellets are a logical choice for professional propagators who want to be more profitable.
The pellets are made from either 100% peat or a mixture of peat and Jiffy’s own-manufactured RHP-certified coco substrate, or 100% coco substrate. Most Jiffy pellets are available preloaded in many European and North American tray standards, as well as on poly-roll (pre-spaced pellets on a roll) or as bulk pellets for loading into standard industry trays. The 100% peat and the coir/peat mix pellets have the medium exposed to high temperature flash drying to create a sterile substrate.
Reducing the use of plastic in packaging and production purposes is an important global issue. Jiffy is now in the process of switching from PE and PP plastics to PLA netting for all Jiffy Pellets. PLA net is a lightweight (12-gram weight), fine-fibre bio-web made of polylactic acid. This material is designed for any growing applications. The PLA net is biodegradable and compostable under controlled, industrial conditions. It is certified according to the harmonized European standard EN13432.
Superior mixes for all of today's demands
A professional grower wants the optimal growing media mixes best suited to their crops. That sounds simple, but this involves a huge range of variables. Every crop demands a reliable and consistent substrate composition to ensure optimal yield, plant stability, nutrient supply, water retention and ultimately, plant quality. Growers today also see more demand for organic crops and environmentally-friendly cultivation methods. The reusability and safe disposal properties of substrates are increasingly important in our industry, and we are happy it is. Our substrate solutions answer today’s demands for professional plant production.
Jiffy’s range of substrates include peat-reduced, peat-free and organic certified solutions. We also have a long history of knowledge and experience in delivering the highest-quality substrate mixes for plant production with the most uniform characteristics, tailored and tested to meet each crop’s specifications, every time. Jiffy blends quality substrates at modern production facilities in a number of locations across the world, in order to guarantee the best physical characteristics.
Preforma plugs consistently retain an air content of 30% or more, which means no compaction, even under heavy misting conditions. This makes it an ideal propagation medium, providing an optimal environment for uniform and fast rooting.
The plant plug binder’s structure ensures no transplant shock. This means you can ship or transplant the plugs earlier, freeing up valuable bench space in order to rotate the crops faster.
Jiffy Preforma plugs are available for many different crops. But over the years we developed some crop specialties such as: orchids, soft fruits, perennial from cuttings or TC, pot plants.
Professional nurseries, landscapers, greenhouse growers and hydroponic farmers all over the world can benefit from the range of advantages the Jiffy Pot provides.
You can save on labor with Jiffy Pots because you don’t need to de-pot: simply pot on or plant out – Jiffy Pot and all. You get faster rooting with a Jiffy Pot than with a plastic pot, thanks to no root disturbance and less root-zone temperature fluctuations. You can also reduce water consumption by 20% when Jiffy Pots are combined with the Jiffy Pot Tray, as this allows shorter, or less frequent, watering cycles.
A large part of all Jiffy Pots are 100% home-compostable and approved for organic production.
Jiffy Pot sizes range from 5.5 to 15 centimetres (round) and 4 to 9 centimetres (square), with most sizes available in pre-loaded growing trays.
Jiffy Growblocks contains 100% RHP Certified coco substrate and is delivered to your greenhouse as a dry plate enclosed in netting. This is highly efficient for both transportation and storage. When water is added, the plate swells into a block or slab, ready to propagate or cultivate your plants and contained by the netting to keep the medium together and the greenhouse clean. Growblocks can be ordered in a wide range of sizes, with or without seedling holes depending on your specific needs.
The purified, stabilized coco substrate is carefully selected at our own Jiffy production site to give a maximum Water Holding Capacity of 60-75%. Air-filled porosity of 20-35% ensures optimum oxygen diffusion rates in the root zone. The production process of the Jiffy Growblock allows growers to adapt any fertilizer application with a range of EC and pH levels. Coco substrate is a renewable, environmentally-friendly substrate with zero disposal issues and the netting is made of PLA. Jiffy Growblocks work perfectly in combination with Jiffy Growbags.
Reducing the use of plastic in packaging and production is a global issue, and at Jiffy we aim to lower the use of plastics for our growing media. Since 2019, Jiffy has switched from PE and PP plastics to PLA netting for the manufacturing of all Jiffy Growblocks and Jiffy Pellets. All Jiffy Growblocks now use PLA netting. This is made from polylactic acid (PLA) an alternative to plastic, based on corn starch. PLA netting is a lightweight, fine-fibre web which is biodegradable and compostable under controlled industrial conditions. It is certified under EU norm EN13432. Jiffy cares for the environment and we are striving to help our customers grow their products in a sustainable or renewable way.
All Jiffy Growbags contain 100% coco substrate, an eco-friendly substrate with no disposability issues. The growbags are available in a wide range of configurations, with or without pre-cut planting and drainage holes, to be suit your greenhouse or horticulture practices. They are supplied from our own plant in Sri Lanka. Compressed and light, they are easy to transport and store. Once put into use, Jiffy Growbags can last multiple cultivation cycles and are great for clean plant production.
And for growers who prefer a deep container system, all Jiffy Growbag options can be supplied in our Jiffy EasyFill format. These have a foldable top, which unfolds to create a deep, open container.
