Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) is one of the many styles of hydroponics. NFT systems are renowned for their ability to realistically provide a wide variety of crops year-round without the use of soil. Plants are placed in long troughs, with root systems exposed to a thin sheet of water that hydrates them while also allowing them to remain oxygenated. The water exists as a thin film that also supplies nutrients available to the plant to fuel growth. At the end of the trough, the water is collected and recycled, cutting water usage compared to conventional means by 90 percent!
TAPKIT agronomists picked NFT as the basis for your unit’s design because we like to keep small to medium-sized growers in mind. Small to medium growers who are armed with a realistic solution like a TAPKIT NFT unit can supply fresh, pesticide-free produce with a low food mileage to local homes and businesses reliably. NFT Hydroponics uses very little water, and offers easy control of the nutrient formula. Here is an example of what your TAPKIT agronomists considered when choosing a hydroponic system for you to operate.
Danny and Rachel couldn't stand the thought of being bored and inactive during their retirement. They love traveling around the world, so when COVID-19 made that an issue, they started looking for a solution that would allow them to be active while also challenging them to provide something meaningful to their community. They purchased a TAPKIT unit and decided to install it by themselves. TAPKIT's experts and installation guide have gotten them to where they are today- happily producing for a large distributor who appreciates the quality of their lettuce since March of 2021.
Ron was a chef who owned a restaurant, and Lital was a CPA. Upon deciding on making a career change together, they looked for a business that would encompass both of their ideals. Ron's experience as a chef and restaurant owner meant he could appreciate the idea of locally-sourced produce. Lital, as a CPA, went over TAPKIT's business plan and found the short ROI and flexibility attractive. Their first TAPKIT has been running since August 2021, and they are looking into running a second TAPKIT unit. They sell their locally grown produce to their neighbors.
Belle Mare is a 5-star resort located in Mauritius, just off of Madagascar and East Africa. Due to the size of Mauritius and the lack of laws regarding the testing of organic food, local and pesticide-free produce is tough to come by. Belle Mare believed their guests deserved access to fresh and healthy food regardless, so they took it upon themselves to provide that to their customers. Today, two TAPKIT units in the resort area serve the guests fresh produce every day. A perfect example of what the farm-to-table movement is all about!
