Botman Hydroponics – sustainable cropping with water reduction
Quality, durability, continuity: Botman Hydroponics offers the very best in cultivation on water. The thoughtfully designed system offers a powerful concept of minimal investment with maximum return. With the food-safe plastic rafts, filled with propagated plants in biodegradable Growcoons and a continuous flow of the underlying nutrient water the tastiest leaf crops and the most beautiful ornamental plants are cultivated daily.
The basis for the success of Botman Hydroponics is simplicity. However, behind this simplicity, there is more than ten years of theoretical and practical research.
Because the rafts are heat permeable, a sub-climate on crop level is created through the water. Which will work both for heating and for cooling. This feature causes that it is no longer necessary to heat the entire space the crops are grown. This greatly adds to the sustainability of your project.
Furthermore, the injection-molded rafts are made of food-safe virgin materials. This increases the service life of the rafts and ensures that the rafts can be recycled eventually. This both greatly adds to the durability of the system.
The aeration and flow of the nutrient pond water is done by a personally developed system; the flow-aerator. As a result, the water is continuously supplied with high dissolved oxygen, which decreases the risk of bacteria and fungi diseases dramatically and therefore is virtually nil.
In addition, the Botman Hydroponics system can also be fully automated. We will gladly discuss the possibilities with you.
An ultimate growing system, based on a rock-solid belief in water and technology. Would you like to know more? Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
