Hydroponic systems

Innovative plant-growing systems

Hydroponic systems provide an innovative way of growing plants without soil, using a solution of water and nutrients. They are practical for fast-growing lightweight or vine plants with proper support. Cherry Irrigation installs hydroponic systems using the nutrient film technique (NFT), manufactured by NFT Hydro. This technique provides a thin layer, or film, of the nutrient solution to the roots without totally submerging them.

NFT Hydro’s hydroponic systems typically consist of

A grow profile or extrusion configured for the purpose and type of plants to be grown (food-grade PVC and UV-stabilised)

A feed and return system using manifolds, grommets and microtubes or pipes, valves and other filtration fittings

A framework made of high-grade aluminium, with welded
Ts and laser-cut braces

A water tank, pump and air pump in a size tailored to the requirements of the system
