YALI® is used as subgrade, e.g. for:

  • hydroponic vegetable plantings such as, for example, tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, melons, etc.
  • hydroponic flowering plants such as roses, daisies, etc.
  • potted plants,
  • plant nurseries for the upbringing of seedlings.

As a natural product YALI® ensures appropriate ventilation and water supply for the root system of plants when appropriate irrigation procedures are observed.


In recent years, YALI® has been used successfully as subgrade for the development and cultivation of plants. YALI® is suitable in agriculture because of its features:

  • inorganic and naturally pure,
  • convenient graining,
  • long-term effects,
  • low costs and
  • vast deposit available.

YALI® is chemically inactive, has neutral pH value and low electrical conductivity. This makes YALI® the ideal inorganic component for base layers and can optimize your production.

Roof Greening

Use of YALI® is especially suitable for the greening of roofs due to its low grain density, its uniform grain size distribution and its chemical purity and stability, especially in case of frost and high external pressure.
