All markets have their first movers, the early adopters. In the forest industry and propagation of cuttings, we’ve entered a partnership with one of them.
In late 2022 and early 2023, A global forest company with a base in Chile will start treating Eucalyptus cuttings with the OptiBoost® technology.
The unique and patented OptiBoost technology is based on vacuum impregnation or infusion and designed for treating cut flowers or in this case, cuttings.
The company is one of the world’s largest pulp and paper companies and employs 17 000 people. Activities include forestry, pulp, paper, and paper products.
The new OptiBoost® application SAGA is optimized for the treatment of cuttings. The application has shown many positive effects, including improved survival in planting.
Below, we explore the technology a bit more and the impact on the forest industry and the propagation of cuttings.
