In traditional soil-based organics, an active and healthy top layer of topsoil is the key to ensuring productivity of crops. Sustainable growth is supported by biological activity from worms, bacteria, and fungi as well as the addition of organic matter and minerals, all working in balance.
The Hydronov approach is to cultivate the top 12 inches of water as carefully as organic soil. We promote and maintain a vibrant, active microbial activity and keep the water balanced for years. The secret: supplementing only the fresh water that is lost to evaporation and transpiration of the plants. No water is ever needed or desirable. The Hydronov growing method routinely monitors individual mineral content and feeds the plant only what it needs for optimum health and growth.
Produce grown locally helps strengthen a region’s economy by providing jobs, supporting local businesses, and bringing the freshest, highest quality produce to consumers. Without the need to transport produce over a long distance, transportation costs as well as the detrimental effect of long-distance shipping is reduced. This is a win for the greenhouse owner, team members, and the consumer!
Hydronov works with investors and greenhouse owners to identify the best area to build a facility. Greenhouses located near consumers they serve reduce shipping costs and deliver higher quality products.
