We believe that global food production needs to find new and innovative ways of growing. Hydroponics potentially provides a way to grow fully controlled crops. Our hydroponics system closes cycles of water, fertilizer, nutrition and is therefore very environmentally friendly. Within hydroponics, two main systems are usual: Nutrient Film Technology (NFT) and Deep Flow Technology (DFT). We offers both systems. NFT makes use of gutters in which water flows around the crop roots, whilst DFT consists of big ponds in which the plant roots continuously hang. It depends on the climate of the place in the world you live in which system fits best. We will advise you which system to use.
The development of our systems was completely done within our company. This results in us being experts in hydroponics. We believe that growing plants using hydroponics asks for courage and an out-of-the-box way of thinking. Therefore, we build growing equipment for every specific growing phase. For example, in collaboration with specialized young plant breeding companies, we developed a patented young plant system, to let the plants root there new roots outside the clot. From day one, the young plants hang with their roots in the water, resulting in fast and efficient growth. Another key issue in hydroponics is the composition of the growing solution. Our fertigation system continually renews and monitors this solution. The amount of water, oxygen and nutrients are always present in the precise amount required.
Deep Flow Technology is a technology in which the crop is grown on a large pond. The composition of the pond is fully controlled by a water climate installation. In our DFT system, the plants are placed in a special float which lays in the water. The float is equipped with special plant carriers in which the plant hang above the water. Those carriers can be adjusted to different young plant forms, making the system applicable for many different plant species. In addition, due the flexible amount of plant carriers on a float, density of the crop can also be varied. The floats are made of whole blown plastic, namely polyethylene. This plastic can be cleaned very well, reducing the chance on disease and bacterial infections.
Lastly, the systems of Industrial Product Solutions can be supplied both for manual of automated use. Our manual systems are developed in such a way that they can be automated without costly adaptation.
