The HydroCycle systems utilize NFT (nutrient film technique) trays. The trays are constructed from food-grade PVC channels that are flat at the bottom and slightly sloped when laid on the system. This ensures that the water continues to move and doesn’t build up in the tray. A nutrient solution is intermittently dispersed throughout the channel to avoid flooding the greens and wetting the foliage. These systems were carefully designed to help avoid fungal diseases by making certain the system operates efficiently by nourishing and oxygenating the seedlings. Growers will experience better germination and density when using a growing mat substrate in the channels. These help to hold suffcient moisture around the roots in between waterings.
