Various techniques of greenhouse irrigation have been studied in depth in order to offer a complete range of products designed for protected crop applications.
The term “no soil” usually refers to any growing system which takes place without soil, using water as the vehicle for delivering nutrients to the plants.
These methods are arousing much interest because of the possibility of achieving good production levels in terms of both quality and quantity, while substantially limiting environmental impact.
Research into the field of soil-free cultivation has led to the creation of various growing systems, distinguished by the volume and method of water delivery, management of nutrients, shape and size of growing units and the presence or otherwise of some kind of substrate.
In recent years, plantations which use a substrate have become more commonly used because they require less complex maintenance than systems without. It is clear that giving the roots a solid medium to anchor in considerably reduces the likelihood of problems during cultivation.
