Dümmen Orange is constantly striving to drive innovation that brings improvements for growers around the globe. Basewell® is the next step into the future of floriculture. The innovative Basewell® technology utilizes an off-shore propagation process to deliver high quality bare-root cuttings directly to the grower.
Basewell® bare-root cuttings feature advanced root development and no growing media. This allows to ship Basewell® products to growers from off-shore production locations, 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.
The Basewell® strip is made of biodegradable materials and produced in the Netherlands. Degradation rate of the Basewell® strip depends on environmental factors, such as temperature, relative humidity, UV radiation, and microbial life.
