TAPKIT is a hydroponic business designed by CEA experts to make you succeed as a grower by providing you with all the resources you need to start.

Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) is one of the many styles of hydroponics. NFT systems are renowned for their ability to realistically provide a wide variety of crops year-round without the use of soil. Plants are placed in long troughs, with root systems exposed to a thin sheet of water that hydrates them while also allowing them to remain oxygenated. The water exists as a thin film that also supplies nutrients available to the plant to fuel growth. At the end of the trough, the water is collected and recycled, cutting water usage compared to conventional means by 90 percent!
TAPKIT agronomists see hydroponics businesses as the solution to the emerging market for local, year-round, pesticide-free produce because of the benefits of removing soil from the growing equation. Diseases and pests that harbor themselves in the soil are no longer in close contact with plant material, significantly reducing their impact on the produce. In addition:
TAPKIT agronomists picked NFT as the basis for your unit’s design because we like to keep small to medium-sized growers in mind. Small to medium growers who are armed with a realistic solution like a TAPKIT NFT unit can supply fresh, pesticide-free produce with a low food mileage to local homes and businesses reliably. NFT Hydroponics uses very little water, and offers easy control of the nutrient formula. Here is an example of what your TAPKIT agronomists considered when choosing a hydroponic system for you to operate.
