_______________

 Production of microgreens can be done in many ways, the majority of producers today use trays and soil. In our production we wanted to get way from soil because of issues related to it. This is way we developed the channel. The channel is the base in our growing system and use a precut hemp fiber mat, which is both sustainable and compostable, but you can also use cocos or rockwool if you have that. 

What makes the channel interesting is that you can start at home then scale up the production by adding the selfwatering system later on. The channels acts as a germination chamber when you stack them, which provide a good environment the seeds to sprout. Use the system as a hobby or at a commercial scale. We will add more tools and products to continue to improve the growing plattform with the channels.

he Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) hydroponic system offers several benefits for growing plants:

  1. Water Efficiency: NFT systems are highly water-efficient because they recycle water and deliver nutrients directly to plant roots in a continuous flow. This reduces water usage compared to traditional soil-based gardening.

  2. Optimal Nutrient Delivery: Plants in NFT systems receive a continuous and balanced supply of nutrients dissolved in water. This ensures that plants have access to essential nutrients in the right proportions, promoting robust growth and development.

  3. Oxygenation of Roots: NFT systems provide excellent oxygenation to plant roots because they are exposed to air as nutrients flow over them in a thin film. This aerobic environment stimulates root health and promotes efficient nutrient uptake.

  4. Space Efficiency: NFT systems are designed to maximize growing space by utilizing vertical structures or narrow channels. This makes them suitable for both small-scale and commercial operations where space is limited.

  5. Reduced Risk of Soil-Borne Diseases: Since NFT systems use a soilless growing medium (typically a neutral medium like rockwool or perlite), there is a lower risk of soil-borne diseases affecting plants. This results in healthier plants and reduces the need for chemical treatments.

  6. Control Over Growing Conditions: Hydroponic systems, including NFT, allow growers precise control over factors such as pH levels, nutrient concentrations, and water flow. This control enables optimization of growing conditions for specific plant species, resulting in higher yields and quality produce.

  7. Year-Round Production: NFT systems can be operated indoors or in controlled environments, allowing for year-round production of crops regardless of external weather conditions. This is particularly advantageous in regions with harsh climates or limited growing seasons.

  8. Environmental Benefits: Hydroponic systems like NFT can reduce the environmental impact of agriculture by minimizing water usage, reducing pesticide and fertilizer runoff, and conserving arable land.

Overall, NFT hydroponic systems offer efficient nutrient delivery, oxygenation of roots, space-saving designs, and environmental benefits, making them a popular choice for growers seeking high-yield, sustainable, and controlled plant cultivation methods.
