What is it?

The entire product incorporates a steel framed building that is highly insulated to better control the internal environment and protect the sprouting fodder.

We use a patented Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) system that in conjunction with our automated climate control system and specifically formulated nutrient mix provides the perfect conditions for hydroponic sprouting barley grain to grow from seed to feed in a full 7 day cycle.

The installation makes use of hydroponic technology and automated systems to deliver nutrients and water to the roots of the growing plants, when they need it.

Everything needed is sited inside the building with the exception of the Environmental Control Unit, this helps not only with climate control but also with the preparation of water, nutrients and very importantly, the base grain.

The use of H2O Farm's inherent experience in the hydroponic sector means that we don’t use spraying techniques that could affect the humidity of the environment.

The combination of the controlled environment and the techniques employed in growing the hydroponic sprouting barley drastically lowers water usage. Regular measurements suggest that over 50,000 litres are need to make 1 ton of hay, our system uses a mere 870 litres per day.

Our system and processes regularly convert 1kg of seed into 7-8kg of feed in a full 7 day cycle (dependant on grain), at the same time removing any health concerns that plague other manufacturers such as the presence of moulds and fungi.
