High Density Baby Leafs Production

From

0

Involved since 2005 with Baby Leaf production on DWT Floating Rafts, original trials have now become a very productive commercial production system, replicating what has been done for single head lettuce production.

After 20 years of research, it is now possible to grow high density direct seeded crops using hydroponic technology. A real breakthrough, that is permitting the efficient production of baby salads, culinary herbs, medicinal herbs, asian greens... Any crop that will perform well in a direct seeded cycle on a soil-like media.

Furthermore, the 2 main operations of seeding and harvesting are fully automated, needing only 3 workers to operate the system. And productivity is there too, with very short crop rotations of 15-20 days whenever there is sufficient light; bringing a harvest anywhere between 20 and 60 Kg per square meter per year depending of the crop.
