The award winning Saturn Grower system operates hydroponically (plants grow through nutrient enriched water) delivered through an integrated, closed loop irrigation system.
It essentially consists of rows of modular columns, using cheap, readily available inert substrates (meaning it requires no soil and no agricultural land).
The layout and spacing of the system varies according to the particular crop and needs of the grower.
Seedlings are planted by inserting ‘plug plants’, and the mature plant removed at harvest.
Water and nutrient are delivered automatically and recirculated, ensuring maximum efficiency and no waste or polluting run-off.
The Saturn Grower is patented in key markets worldwide.
