The innovative Basewell product form allows growers to bring in high-quality rooted cuttings from offshore at a fraction of the cost of rooted liners. Basewell provides advanced root development with no growing media – they are ready to transplant directly into the finish container.
Basewell® technology delivers multiple benefits for the grower:
Basewell® technology has been trialed on various annual and perennial crops across North America to evaluate performance against unrooted and rooted cuttings. Results show that Basewell® bare-root cuttings finish in equal or less time than an equivalent rooted cutting.
Saves labor – Basewell transforms production from two steps into one. Without the need for labor-intensive transplanting and moving trays, growers can direct stick Basewell rooted cuttings into their final container from the start. One and done – fewer steps, fewer touch points, lower costs.
