Substrates for young plants and seedlings

Kekkilä C

The C range is our classic range of products that has high technical qualities, producing high yields and the best results for growing young plants.

The C range is composed of unique, white Sphagnum fuscum dominant peat, harvested from the peat bogs of Finland. The strong cell wall structure of Sphagnum fuscum facilitates extremely porous structure of this propagation substrate. Mixing of white peat from different raw material sources results in outstandingly consistent quality throughout the year.

In the C Turbo versions, the removal of the finest particles ensures the most homogeneous cell filling. This is a result of our unique screening method which we have optimised over the years to reduce fine dusty particles.

Products in the C range are available with or without wetting agent and one of our own starter fertilisers. Physical properties may be adjusted with optional constituents e.g. perlite. The products are suitable for use in plugs and trays up to 5 cm.

Kekkilä DSM

The DSM range is our Baltic pride: a high-quality, all-purpose range composed by selecting the best white and brown peat raw materials.

Mixing of different raw materials ensures outstanding consistency throughout the year and secures homogeneous results for plant propagators all over the world.

Products in the DSM range typically contain wetting agent and one of Kekkilä’s own starter fertilisers. Physical properties of DSM can be adjusted with optional constituents e.g. black peat or perlite. The products are suitable for use in plugs and trays up to 5 cm.

Kekkilä TSM

The TSM range consists of our darkest substrates for tray seedlings.

The peat raw material is  a special mixture of very fine brown and black peat. The high water holding capacity makes this range ideal for use in the hottest climate zones.

Products in the TSM range typically contain wetting agent and Kekkilä’s own starter fertiliser KS1. The most popular high-fertilised version of TSM secures micronutrient availability and vital growth throughout the propagation period. The products are suitable for use in plugs and trays up to 5 cm.
