Apr 23, 2017ARaymond introduces Easy Clip 14mm for cucumbers
ARaymond will launch the Easy Clip 14mm for cucumbers, which will join the other products in the Easy Clip range. The 14mm clip was created following requests from cucumber growers for a smaller product to use in their greenhouses during the production phase, according to the company.
The Easy Clip 14mm can be used in high-wire cultivation. It’s ideal for use with the high-wire technique as the clips support the plant stems while their rounded form and air-vents reduce the risk of Botrytis among the greenhouse crops, according to ARaymond.
Cucumber growers requested a smaller clip to avoid the leaves of the cucumber plants coming between the clip and the stems, said Erik Jan Hoornstra, sales engineer at ARaymond. “They also needed the clip to be easy to open and able to move along the stem if necessary, so this was another point we had to take into consideration during the design phase,” he said.
Following the success of the initial trials of the new clip, ARaymond is now launching production of the new Easy Clip 14mm and aims to have it on the commercial market in May.
