Soil Farmer turns to Hydroponics

Let’s look at some of the key reasons why more traditional farmers turn to soiless farming:

  •  Hydroponic is easy to develop in strategic places; this means that the hydroponic crops can be grown close to the market area; therefore, reducing the cost that could have been used in transportation and these automatically reduces the production cost, hence increasing the gardener profits.
  • Hydroponics can be produced at any season since they grow into their own controlled environment which is controlled and protected from predators like plant eating animals.
  • Less amount of time and work is required in hydroponics gardening; the amount of work needed is very little due to the absence of the weeds that would require time to pluck them out.This method is time saving since no weeds are present only some few minutes are needed to check the nutrient levels and the harvesting processes.
  •  Hydroponic plants will grow larger; this is because you have full control over the plants environment to the optimal.
  •  Hydroponic plants can be grown everywhere; it is said to convert any terrain into fertile farming land.With the normal farming or the soil farming, there are multiple problems such as pest, climate and soil diseases.

NFT Hydro will assist you to successfully transform from traditional farming to soiless farmimg.

Your success as a grower become our success story

More often than we can say, when clients first contact NFT Hydro they have been studying soilless farming on the internet, reading every article about hydroponics and the various methods available for months, if not years on end. I think we can all agree that the amount of information available around soilless farming methods like hydroponics is overwhelming. We have been working alongside our customers since early 2014 to ensure every single one of them become a successful grower. The best advice you will get from us is simply to purchase your hydroponic systems and start growing. The practical, hands-on experience of growing with NFT Hydro’s guidance will surpass any online studies.

Take one of our new clients in MooiRiver Kwa-Zulu Natal, Rodney Els. Rodney has no previous experience in soilless farming, but yet the photos displayed in this article is of his first crop. With clear instructions on the propriety growing method that we advocate, Rodney is on his way to realizing his dream of becoming a commercial soil-less farmer. Congratulations Rodney!

Agritechture – Combining Urban Agriculture and Architecture in our Cities.

We need to find new solutions in how we can grow food in a more sustainable way. 

A unique way of combining urban agriculture, innovative technical solutions, and architecture to meet the demand for efficient food production within our cities.  A viable solution for sustainable urban food production must produce a maximum volume of food on a minimum land area whilst using minimal resources and generating minimum waste.

Container Farming is an easy starting point. As we have recently learned that retailer Ikea is now preparing to harvest its first hydroponically crop of lettuce from containers and eventually serve them to customers at two of its in-store restaurants in Sweden.  As do many of our clients grow indoors and in containers.

Affordable Hydroponic Greenhouse Custom set-up for client

NFT Hydro was approached to custom design the hydroponic layout for the clients’ greenhouses, to fall within budget & stipulated tender requirements.  The brief was to optimize the yield & production for growing leafy greens & vine crops in multiple 12 x 4-meter greenhouses. To ensure what we suggest is a feasable & workable design solution for the client, we simulated the setup at our NFT Hydro Warehouses.
