The TAPKIT is developed in such a way that it can be adjusted to local circumstances and needs of the grower. The greenhouse currently built in Israel is provided with a monitoring and controlling operation system for optimization of the root zone temperature, developed and patented by Roots Sustainable Agricultural Technologies. This is one of the options the TAPKIT can be extended with.
According to ROOTS CEO Sharon Devir, stabilizing the nutrient temperature year-round will help farmers produce better quality crops, maximize production volume and minimize costs. “With this collaboration we can now address a major problem NFT farmers face in stabilizing nutrient temperatures and maintaining them at an optimal range year-round. This is a game-changer for Roots as it allows us to tap into an existing, rapidly growing global advanced-hydroponics market."
The TAPKIT is to be presented at the Agri-Tech Israel 2018. The exhibition will be held May 8 – 10, 2018 at the Israel Trade Fairs and Convention Center in Tel Aviv. During and after the exhibition, visits can be made to the first TAPKIT greenhouse project.
