Growing crops in a soil-less substrate can be wasteful in terms of water, fertiliser and therefore return on investment because in order to properly flush the substrate, it is necessary to apply 30%-50% more water than the evapo-transpiration rate (plant requirements).

In saying this, it is possible to collect this water and be able to recycle it through the rest of the greenhouse, however to do this we need to develop the collection points specific for your greenhouse.

Recycling options offer several advantages: significant water and fertiliser savings (50%-70%), enhanced quality yields (as the result of increasing water applications), improved availability of nutrients and more efficient flushing, which reduces ground water contamination and ecological damage in agronomic regions.

AIS Greenworks has invested in solutions for various gutter types and therefore can provide a positive outcome to allow the maximum benefit from your limited resources.
