The Dry Hydroponics system
Dry Hydroponics is suitable for short-cycle crops, like lettuce, herbs and flowers. In cultivation ponds filled with nutrient rich water, the crops grow in cropholders placed on floats. This patented design allows crops to acquire sufficient amounts of water, light, nutrients, CO2 and oxygen at all times. The crops grow in a natural way without necessary human intervention.
The cultivation system
Dry Hydroponics distinguishes the overground part of the crop between the underground part. The designs provides an airy and light environment for the overground part, an ideal microclimate for the development of strong and healthy leaves. To the underground part of the plant, generous amounts of water and oxygen are always available.
Furthermore, the insulating effect of the floats and the generous amounts of available water do not only provide an optimal cultivation climate, it also makes Dry Hydroponics a particularly reliable cultivation system.
The logistics side of Dry Hydroponics is also very ingenious. How this works can be seen in the animation below.
