Numerous benefits for the horticulture industry generated by the OptiBoost® for cuttings method.  

The OptiBoost technology combines vacuum impregnation (VI) and pulsed electric field (PEF) to prolong the lifetime of plant cuttings prior to planting.

There are numerous benefits for the horticulture industry generated by the OptiFlower method. The increased storage time might lead to more flexible, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly transportation. The logistics, both at the production farm and at the customer site (greenhouses in Europe), can be significantly improved.

The production peaks can be managed better since cuttings can be harvested in advance and stored. Nowadays, the harvest of plant cuttings is usually determined by customer demand. Thanks to OptiBoost method the planning can be more efficient, the harvest of plants can be organized based on the number of available personnel or per variety.

The waste can be minimized since the unsold varieties can be stored and sold with delay when the market demand increases. OptiBoost method also improves the quality of the cuttings.

The general appearance, turgidity, and structure after storage, as well as the development and rooting after planting are crucially enhanced.
