In the face of insufficient ecological lighting and scarce land resources, the Netherlands has invested a large amount of funds and labor to make up for the shortcomings. It has adopted the most advanced greenhouse technology and established a world-class facility agriculture system.
Traditional agriculture cannot grow high-quality vegetables without high-quality soil that meets the planting conditions. But in some extremely dry or saline alkali soil areas, we cannot grow edible vegetables or fruits. Through soilless cultivation, we can achieve the growth of green plants in barren areas. Hydroponic cultivation is the most common technique in soilless cultivation, which not only maximizes the use of planting space but is not limited by the soil environment. Therefore, it is considered the best solution for crop growth.
By using hydroponics, the growth environment of crops can be controlled to conform to their growth patterns and reduce the breeding of diseases and pests, thereby reducing the use of fertilizers or pesticides. By improving crop growth efficiency and regulating the environment, hydroponic cultivation can achieve higher yields in smaller spaces. By utilizing hydroponic cultivation techniques, various crops such as spinach, tomatoes, lettuce, and strawberries can be produced. The hydroponic technology can be applied to a wide variety of vegetables, among which lettuce is the first choice for many people.
The hydroponic tower planting system is an efficient and convenient vertical farm, which can produce more than three times the amount of crops while utilizing the minimum planting area. Many greenhouses in the Netherlands use vertical farms for planting, which not only solves the problem of scarce land resources, but also eliminates the worries of continuous soil cropping caused by soilless cultivation.
There are many types of hydroponic tower systems, including dozens of different sizes and whether they are equipped with plant growth lights. The hydroponic tower system is also a very common type of farm planting in vertical farms. In addition to the hydroponic tower system, systems such as NFT system , ZIP system, and EBB and flow table can also be applied in vertical farms.
With the emergence of advanced agricultural systems, hydroponic technology has become widely popular due to its ability to meet consumers' demand for green vegetables. In the continuous exploration process of new agriculture, hydroponic cultivation has also been constantly improving, and the rapid development of Dutch agriculture cannot do without the support of new agricultural equipment.
