Transforming the Produce Industry

What is Hydroponics?

As they grow, plants don’t feed on soil—they gain nutrients from the minerals within it. Modern hydroponic systems have replaced soil with alternative growing media such as sand, peat moss, rockwool, and water.

Most simply defined as "growing without soil"

By using a water-based nutrient solution rather than soil, the vital minerals that plants need to develop are saved from depletion. Plants can easily absorb the minerals they need, without the vast amount of space traditional growing practices require. Thus, those using hydroponics expect healthier plants and greater yields.

The Future of Hydroponics

The Hydronov Team

Hydronov’s roots stem from a drive to innovate greenhouses. Founded in the 1980s by Luc Desrochers as a humble, yet unique research project, it quickly sprouted into something groundbreaking—our deep-water Floating Raft Technology (FRT). Now, Hydronov’s technology has spanned more than 3 million square feet of installation, aiding in greenhouse construction and retrofitting projects around the globe.
