"The results of the cherry tomato trial carried out in Portugal allow us to qualify as a success the application of our recirculating system in the Portuguese country", the team with NGS says. "To show the results, open days were organized which aroused great interest among professionals in the sector, who were able to verify on the ground the important advantages of this system over other similar ones."
"Thanks to the exclusive NGS multiband it is possible to anticipate planting in two weeks, in addition to obtaining a homogeneous production throughout all the development of the crop", they say, referring to the production data obtained in the Horto Descanso LDA greenhouse.
"In fact, the visitors highlighted the good formation of the bunches, the good size and color of the fruits, as well as the high organoleptic qualities. In addition, the easy assimilation of nutrients did not require foliar applications to compensate for nutritional deficiencies."
Cherry tomato with recirculating system in Portugal
The test, carried out 100% with the NGS recirculating system with the ‘Juanita’ variety of cherry tomato, has among its advantages that it is more economical (only with the multiband or with the incorporated lattice), its greater simplicity and speed of installation, and savings in labor costs. "But other positive aspects also stand out, such as not needing products for disinfection of irrigation water or cleaning treatments and, above all, longer useful life of the system."
"In addition, it provides 100% efficient management of water and nutrients and, as it is a recirculating system, there is no delivery of water to the ground or to the groundwater channels, which affects the environmental sustainability of the system"
"At the same time, the use of chemical products against pests or diseases is totally reduced, promoting the use of organic products, in addition to being a clean system that allows a more effective and economical control of consumer health."
New Growing System is convinced that the NGS recirculating system is the best option for hydroponic cherry tomato cultivation in Portugal, adapted to the demands of each client, and with the technical advice of the company as a guarantee of higher productivity and performance.
