Nutrient Film Technology is a technology in which the crop is grown on long gutters. The roots of the crop hang in a small layer of water which continuously flows around. The flowing maintains the water quality, resulting in good and healthy crop roots. Our system is automated in such a way that during a cultivation, distance between the gutters can be widened automatically. This is done to use the greenhouse area as efficient as possible.
Advantages of NFT:
• NFT systems are lightweight and therefore also suitable for vertical farming.
• Spaces between the gutters make air circulation around the plant and addition of eg CO2 easy.
• An optimal planting distance during the entire growing time.
• Nutrition and oxygen are available without restriction, so that the plant can achieve maximum growth.
