Alberto Ferreto

Support Specialist

Alberto is responsible for the preparation of soil and tray filling in Horticultural Services and on average provides the institute with 3,000 pots a week.

The calibration of soil is crucial, using the ‘Logitec Plus Mixing Line’ machine Alberto can produce a consistent variety of soil mixtures to support our science.

For pot and tray filling he uses a ‘Visser Template Filler 900’ which allows me to make up to 750 pots/trays an hour with consistency and precision. These machines are imported from the Netherlands and are the only ones in the UK.
