Young plant production is one of the most vital parts of a solid deep water culture system. Visser Horti Systems, part of the Viscon Group, has been specializing in the automation of young plant production since 1967. Therefore this expertise is available to Viscon Hydroponics. Due to the lengthy experience in young plant production, a unique system has been designed to grow the ideal young plant, that can be finished in the production area.
When the grow cups with young plants have been transplanted in the floats automatically, the floats will be placed in the basin by an automatic crane. The design of the tall floats makes for a deep water culture system that needs little handling, with as little movements as necessary.
The cups are placed in a staggered pattern, which results in a 10% higher occupation per float. The hydroponic float is designed in plastic, which makes it easy to clean. This white plastic reflects well, which generates a higher light capacity for the plant.
The floats will float on the water, which makes it easy to transport them with minimal effort. Every time a product is automatically harvested, new crops will be placed in the ponds. The ponds are continuously covered with floats, which protects the pond from the development of algae.
When the product is ready to be harvested, it is automatically transported to the central packing line in the harvest area. The product can be packed with the grow cup attached for better shelf life. Another option is to cut the product directly from the grow cup to be flow packed as a ready-to-use product. When the product is harvested, the floats will be cleaned automatically before new young plants are transplanted in the hydroponic floats.
Viscon Hydroponics enables you to leave the open field and produce in a safe and controlled environment. Growing in the greenhouse gives you advantages by excluding environmental hazardous.
The use of pesticides can be limited, because the environment can be controlled much better. Different disease hazards can be excluded from the closed systems, which helps you to reduce your use of chemicals.
