In 2020, a tomato grower in Germany decided to try using Hydroponic Systems' Spacer in his greenhouse to improve his yields. The decision was a wise one. After installing a premium system with Spacer , his tomato plants grew healthier and stronger, without excess moisture or bacterial infections.
"This system that our customer from Germany contracted works by placing the Spacer between the substrate bags and the white gutters, promoting proper drainage and preventing moisture accumulation. This has great benefits for the plants and, consequently, for the growers", the team with Hydroponic Systems shares.
"But the advantages don't end there. The Spacer system also provides better aeration and oxygenation to the roots, which favors optimal growth and development."
The customer was surprised by the results of using Spacer in their tomato production. He quickly observed a significant increase in individual plant yields, with larger, healthier tomatoes, free of deformities and blemishes. "The premium system with Hydroponic Systems' Spacer also made plant maintenance and management easier, as drainage was more homogeneous and there was less risk of root rot or other diseases", they share.
This story is just one example of how Hydroponic Systems' Spacer systems can benefit hydroponic growers. "By providing a reliable and efficient drainage and aeration system, they make for healthier, more productive plants. And in a world where sustainable agriculture is more important than ever, having drainage harvesting systems is a solution that not only improves yields, but also reduces irrigation water consumption", the team adds.
"Hydroponic growers looking to improve your yields and the health of your plants, should consider using a system with Spacer and channel in their production. It's a simple, affordable solution that can make a big difference in the success of your crops. And with success stories like this, it's clear that Hydroponic Systems is a solution that really works."
