nutrient film technique

nft system

Matthew Beartrack checks on the nutrient film system. This technique uses a water pump to deliver a constant flow of shallow, nutrient rich solution through the growing area and drains directly back into a reservoir. The growing trays are placed at an angle (supported by a rack or on a bench) to let the nutrient solution flow back into the reservoir.
