Resin Factory

Our factory in the Netherlands

Our group produces all necessary “ingredients” in-house. In fact, we can produce and supply unlimited products and are not dependent on raw materials such as peat and coconut. The aim to have as little peat as possible from nature in the future can be compensated by products from Resins Agro.

The products

In agricultural and landscaping uses, the unique cell structure of the foam allows for a water/air retention ratio of 60/40 promoting healthier plant root growth. Further the foam is inert and biodegradable over a period of 10 to 15 years making it safe to use in food crop growing.


World wide tests have shown that in greenhouse growing, an increased yield of up to 30% is achievable using 100% Fytocell foam flakes.
A water saving of up to 50% can be achieved in landscaping and sports field applications when mixing up to 30% volume of Fytofoam flakes with soil.

Landscaping & Sports

In landscaping and sports fields, mixing the foam in the soil to a deep of 300mm encourages deeper root development due to increased moisture captured by  the foam, where as previously this water would leach through the soil and go to waste. The added benefit of the being air trapped within the soil substrate is the prevention of soil compaction, as the foam cannot be fully compressed.

Fytocell flakes - root growth - Water saving foam products

Rooting in the foam substrate

As you can see plants feel very comfortable inside the Fytocell substrate.
Once grown in the flakes, roots have direct access to water and nutrition (when added).
The rootsystem will develop very fine and intens. This creates an optimal condition for the plant in all kind of circumstances.
