Growers looking to get better yield and quality with lower costs of production through hydroponic science are encouraged to pass by the Saturn Bioponics stand at Fruit Logistica.
Optimising crop growing using advanced hydroponic technology with a rapid payback is the way forward, according to company CEO, Alex Fisher.
“We focus on crop nutrition strategy and know-how applied to specific crop systems,” he says.
“We have significant experience in lettuce, strawberries, pak choi, herbs and some non-food crops, but we are essentially ‘crop agnostic’ – it just has to make sense scientifically and commercially.
“We are able to deliver the hydroponic science straight into the farm, ensuring optimal cultivation strategies throughout the plants’ lifecycle. This helps farmers achieve consistent high quality crops with greater predictability and profitability.”
Saturn Bioponics’ main focus at the show will be the Saturn Grower 3D tower system suitable for growing crops as diverse as basil and strawberries in greenhouses.
Towers, or ‘columns’ as Fisher calls them, vary in density per square meter and planting sites number per level, delivering overall planting densities of between 215,000 and 750,000 planting sites per hectare.
Benefits include increased production efficiency, improved quality and safety, enhanced labour productivity and low environmental impact says Alex Fisher, CEO of Saturn Bioponics.
