These Spanish systems grow strawberries in substrate

Since its inception in 2014, Hydroponic Systems has introduced several drainage systems for specific crop types that have improved the success rates of growers around the world. One of these models is the patented HS Evolution System, which, according to field results from various customers, is capable of achieving a yield of up to 1.4 kg of strawberries per plant (in the Murano and Prize varieties) thanks to the combination of its elements: metallic channel, the elevated out-flow through which the drainage leaves the system and the Spacer Elevated, a piece designed by the R&D&I department of the company from Murcia, which guarantees the minimum and necessary surface area of contact with the substrate bags containing the roots of the plants, at the same time as it creates an optimum space under them to favor aeration, oxygenation, and drainage circulation.

Its pre-lacquered metal channel is also coated on the inside with a protective layer to guarantee its resistance to oxidation and drainage, making it highly durable, so that long-term savings and yields are greater.

In all cases, having the Spacer improves the performance of drainage systems, as it favors strawberry development at its maximum levels while preventing roots from coming into contact with moisture or root diseases that damage production. In addition, recent research has shown that it encourages oxygenation of the roots, which results in a higher percentage of production per plant. Specifically, according to Centro Universitario Ceickor, between 3% and 5%. By eliminating these typical and annoying root health problems in crops, the farmer is able to comply with the planned cycle without surprises and obtain greater profitability.

In addition, HS Evolution Strawberry can be hung or buried in the ground using poles to achieve the right height for easy harvesting, a correct slope for effective and efficient drainage.
