Hydroponics is the growing of plants using substrates while delivering water, nutrients and oxygen.

It is a great sustainable way of growing with water savings anywhere between 70% and 90% depending on the type of crop and your set-up. Crops grown in these environments include microgreens, leafy greens and medicinal cannabis. Rockwool is one of the most common substrate options on the market but others include perlite, vermiculite, coir, coco, clay pellets or even peat moss, sawdust, sand and gravel.

WATER RIGHT EVERY TIME

If you are manually watering it can be easy to overwater or underwater your plants.

To be accurate you would need to stick to a good schedule to make sure there are no inconsistencies.

REGISTERING YOUR RUN-OFF

An automated control system can monitor and measure your run-off for you.

The data gathered can then be used to ensure compliance with local legislation if required and give you an accurate measurement of expenditure.

TAKE CONTROL

Depending on the size, type and structure of your grow room you can control: nutrient, pH, EC, irrigation, and run-off.

Your system should alert you when there’s a problem and allow you to access and manage everything remotely.

 

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO AUTOMATE YOUR HYDROPONIC SYSTEM?

With hydroponics any interruption in watering or feeding can ruin the crops fast. Where the root zone is exposed (NFT)  they can dry out quickly, so an automated system will ensure things run accurately.
