We recommend that hydroponic growers flush their systems every month to every few months, depending on the type of system they're running. But why? We're also fans of recirculating system because it conserves water and nutrients.
Eden Green Technology Breaks Ground on New Texas Greenhouse, Continues With $12 Million Strategic Expansion
Eden Green Technology's greenhouse modules are more sustainable and scalable than other hydroponic vertical farms, low-tech greenhouse formats, and traditional soil-based farming methods.
Leading tomato grower in Canada sees significant cost savings with LED technology and heavier fruit weights that drive increased yields
Moving farming from vast expanses of land to urban settings sounds like no easy feat. How can enough plants grow to feed large populations in a limited space? Instead of taking down skyscrapers, urban farmers use their vertical nature to their advantage.
With practice, many hydroponic growers can fine-tune their growing environment to remove bottlenecks, minimize maintenance, and increase the quality of their produce. One way they do this is through automated nutrient dosing.
Little Leaf Farms, the best-selling greenhouse grown lettuce in the US, doubles greenhouse growing capacity and broadly expands across East Coast
The company also recently bought 180 acres of land in McAdoo, Pennsylvania and has plans to build another state-of-the-art greenhouse there to further distribution down the East Coast of the sustainably-grown lettuce
The Deep Flow Technique (DFT) is similar to two other hydroponic systems, but it ultimately works in it's own way. In this article, you'll learn how DFT hydroponic systems grow crops.
Since water is the main carrier of nutrients, it's essential that the water have as few impurities as possible. Poor water quality may cause plants to suffer from stunted growth, nutrient deficiencies, bacterial contamination and more!
While there are many different techniques with indoor farming, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics, all of them have one thing in common - the lack of soil. Instead of using the concept of growing in soil, crops are instead grown in peat moss or coconut husks.
There are a lot of factors involved in giving plants the ideal combination of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other necessary nutrients. The good news is that getting it right in the Greenery is actually pretty easy!
Illumitex terminates LED lighting operations to accelerate FarmVisionAI™, a computer-vision artificial-intelligence platform uniquely enabling the digital transformation of indoor farming
Natufia to feature the world's first fully-integrated and automated hydroponic kitchen garden at KBIS 2020
Since it is controlled indoors, homeowners do not need to worry about pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. These are year-round, 24/7, kitchen-to-table ingredients without the concern of weather challenges or seasons.
As we rush towards a greener tomorrow, techniques that have been given to us by mother nature are being revived with modern methods. Aquaponics has a long way to go but both economically and environmentally speaking, this path with have many rewards.
TrueHarvest Farms in Belton, TX, is ramping up their production of fresh, safe and locally grown leafy greens, using an automated hydroponic growing system from Green Automation.
High photon efficacy allows more light to reach plants for healthier growth and enables indoor farms to save on energy costs

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
