NFT stands for ‘Nutrient Film Technique’. A thin film of nutrient solution flows through the roots of the plants providing them with all the elements they need. The only medium used is the medium that the plants are started in, it is a ‘bare rooted’ technique.
In a Nutriculture NFT Gro-Tank or Multi-Duct system the nutrient solution is contained in a tank. The plants sit on a tray or ‘channel’ above the tank and nutrient solution is pumped up to the ‘channel’ and flows over the roots of the plants. Whatever the plants don’t use drains back into the tank ready to be passed over the roots again.
A constant supply of water and nutrition to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means growers experience up to 4x the yield of traditional soil growing.
The benefits of NFT Gro-Tank and Multi-Duct Systems
PROVEN RESULTS- Up to 4x greater yield than conventional growing methods.
HEALTHIER PLANTS- Plants are never under-fed or over-watered and there is no build up of salts in the root zone.
EFFICIENT-Reduce manual watering frequency – connect a Nutriculture Auto Top Up system to the NFT system and plants can be left unattended for longer periods.
VERY LITTLE MEDIUM USED-Less chance of disease, less waste material to dispose of.
