Yagur Hydroponic Agriculture 2
6,000 sqm of Hydroponic Floating Raft Culture (DWC) greenhouse .
Each production pool is 30 meters length and 5 meters width. Each raft contained five lettuce plants
Production pool water volume: 18-20 m³
Growing cycle – 20 days
Filtoflex Nano bubbles system was located at the head of the Production pool,
Generating Nano air bubbles at high intensity, creating enriched water at a range of 1.5 m³ per hour
LocationYagur Hydroponic greenhouses, Israel
Average Temperature of 23°C
Enriched fertigation water with Nano air bubbles increased the average fresh weight of the lettuce by 22% or alternatively shortened the growing cycle by four days, thereby increasing the number of harvests per year. Based on the above experiment, there is a saving of 3-4 growth days per cycle, which represents two additional harvests per year.
Based on grower cost and profit conditions, the ROI is 6 months
