Hydroponics is a reliable, technology-driven method for growers to increase efficiency while reducing crop disease and pesticide use. Greenhouse growers are increasingly turning to Hydroponics for faster production, as well as to save on labor, energy, and space. If you are looking to create the ideal nutrient environment, elevate crop quality, and meet higher quantity standards, consider partnering with Stuppy to design your custom Hydroponic Growing System. We’ve manufactured several stand-alone Hydroponic Systems for commercial growers, including NFT, Bucket, and Ebb & Flood based designs, which obtain their nutrients from a soluble fertilizer compounds.
Stuppy’s NFT Systems make growing easy by economizing space and offering flexibility, while maximizing crop propagation and turnover. We engineered our NFT system for easy expansion over time by designing modules that can be incorporated together without requiring any significant or complex alterations.
Stuppy’s NFT Growing Systems stand apart when it comes to quality and dependability:
- Durable: NFT systems have all PVC based irrigation and a heavy-duty steel-based frame.
- Easy Set-Up: PVC assemblies and components are premanufactured – no tools required.
- Efficient: Ideal pump and pipe sizes used to minimize pressure loss and power consumption over time.
- Optimal Crop Production: Our growing systems utilize optimal transplant spacing parameters.
- Better (2-Piece) NFT Channel Assembly, making it easier to clean and harvest crops, yield more, and grow more varieties including strawberries.
- Expandable 5’ L NFT segments can be easily added on to each module.
- Dosing Automation: The Autogrow® IntelliDose automatically adjusts nutrient/pH parameters over time and can be implemented on any size system.
- Protected by our Lifetime Technical Support.
