Ground-breaking but easy to use technology and hydroponic science will be on-show on the stand shared by Idromeccanica Lucchini greenhouses and Saturn Bioponics at Fruit Logistica.
Experts on the stand will be able to advise growers looking to get better yield and quality with lower costs of production.
“Optimising crop growing using advanced hydroponic technology with a rapid payback is the way forward,” says Saturn Bioponics CEO, Alex Fisher.
“We focus on crop nutrition strategy and know-how applied to specific crop systems.”
“We have a good understanding of how to optimise production of lettuce, strawberries, pak choi, herbs and some non-food crops, and our technology can work with other crops too – 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.
