A NEW manual and DVD aim to debunk the myths and give commercial horticultural growers a step-by-step analysis of the pros and cons of converting to hydroponics.

Backed by five years of in-depth research, the Converting to Hydroponics manual gives growers options to upgrade their existing structures, rather than spend tens of thousands of dollars on new high-tech greenhouses.

Its other practical advice includes:

  • Comparisons between the growth rates, yields and returns from greenhouses converted to hydroponics and crops still grown in soil;
  • Examples of existing structure conversions;
  • Conversion costs, general management and daily maintenance and monitoring;
  • Nutrition and irrigation information;
  • Further benefits and limitations, such as disease control and the boundaries of the growing environment in low-medium technology greenhouses.
