Skeepon Effectiveness Case Study – Tomato cultivation in the summer has more than doubled its growth rate
We regularly visit farmers who are using Skeepon and ask them about their usage and requests.
This time, we visited a farmer who grows tomatoes in Fujieda City, Shizuoka Prefecture (Tomato Republic Kawarazaki Farm). He first learned about Skeepon in the summer of this year 2021 and has been using it continuously. From here, we will introduce them with photos.
Growth rate of tomatoes increased 2 to 2.5 times in plastic greenhouse cultivation.
This summer, in August 2021, they first transplanted tomato seedlings (small plug seedlings of about 10 cm) into Rockwool soaked with Skeepon, and after about a week, they moved them to the main field. The effect was that the growth rate of the seedlings was accelerated, and he said that it was about 2 to 2.5 times faster than before.
