Hydroponic lettuce One

Hydroponic lettuce One of the latest developments in the industry is cultivation on water. Enza Zaden is closely involved in the development of varieties that are suitable for this innovative, environmentally friendly form of cultivation, especially where lettuce is concerned. Hydroponics in a nutshell Soilless culture: that is what hydroponics is all about. One of its characteristics is a mobile gully system, with seven- to eight-centimetre pots. The roots of the crops are in direct contact with the nutrients dissolved in water. Hydroponic production limits the use of water, nutrients and chemicals; it prevents soil pollution and involves highly mechanised, automated systems. The end products are very clean, and are often marketed as grown without chemicals, hence an increase in organic production.
