Hydroponics, or soilless cultivation, has been based for the last 30 years mainly on 3 different types of substrates: rockwool, perlite and, more recently, coconut fibre.
In today's blog we give you a brief summary of their differentiating characteristics, the benefits of each one, and the advantages and disadvantages of their application in hydroponics.
With the arrival of spring, the end of the season is also approaching in southern Spain, and many farmers are considering changing substrates. It is time to evaluate the existing options in order to obtain the best crop yields in the future.
Our recommendation will always be the application of our coconut fibre based substrates, as we have proven results, and we are not the only ones to say it, our customers confirm it with great satisfaction after each harvest.
