Did you know that growing a kilo of tomatoes in the open field requires a whopping 60 litres of water, whereas in hydroponic greenhouse cultivation it is only15 litres?
It is important to give the best possible start to the new crop. The turn-round period offers opportunities to clean the glasshouse and carry out essential maintenance prior to its arrival. Commercial pressures sometimes mean that the glasshouse is only empty for 2-3 weeks. However a good clean up in this period will pay dividends for the cultivation to follow.
Nutrient recovery makes sense economically and environmentally. Why would you discharge valuable nutrients when they can be used again?
By far the easiest way to reduce the discharge of drain water to is to work with a high quality primary water supply and low drain volumes. Substrate design and knowledge has improved over the years.
The quality of the primary water supply is very important when operating within a closed hydroponic system.
