The road map to sustainable cultivation

Plant Empowerment is a new unique cultivation method that leads to more yield and better quality. At the same time, resources such as water, energy and nutrients are used more efficiently. This makes Plant Empowerment the road map to sustainable horticulture. The theory of Plant Empowerment is described in the book; Plant Empowerment, the basic principles. This book is well received worldwide and is currently being translated into several languages. Many growers already grow according to the principles of Plant Empowerment.
