What is NFT?NFT stands for ‘Nutrient Film Technique’. A thin film of nutrient solution flows through the roots of your plants providing them with all the elements they need. The only medium used is the medium that the plants are started in, it is a ‘bare rooted’ technique.
In a Nutriculture NFT system the nutrient solution is contained in a tank. Your plants sit on a tray or ‘channel’ above the tank and nutrient solution is pumped up to the ‘channel’ and flows over the roots of your plants. Unused nutrient solution drains back into the tank ready to be passed over the roots again.
A constant supply of water and nutrition to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means you can expect up to 4x the yield of traditional soil growing. Why NFT produces great results :‘Bare rooted’ technique means unrestricted access to oxygen.Greater uptake of water and nutrients.Never under or over-fed and no nutrient build up. Why choose Nutriculture NFT systems?Proven results – achieve up to 4x greater yield than conventional growing methods.Healthier plants – your plants are never under-fed or over-watered and there is no build up of salts in the root zone.Get more out of a small space – Gro-Tanks are just 20cm tall, our MD904 Multi-Duct covers 10 square metres and is just 30cm tall!Reduce manual watering frequency – use a Nutriculture Auto Top-Up system to connect your NFT system to a reserve tank, so you can leave your plants for longer.Very little medium used – less chance of disease, less waste material for you to dispose of.
