This is how much a university greenhouse in Brazil produces per square meter

A Brazilian university trains its students in agricultural practices using Hydroponic Systems. The educational institution and the Spanish company established a commercial relationship a few years ago to equip its research greenhouses with some 1,000 linear meters of Premium drainage and cultivation systems capable of boosting tomato production, enabling them to teach young Brazilians the best-protected cultivation techniques.

The outcome of this project is exciting. Under the guidance of the university’s crop expert professor, this Premium System achieves yields ranging from 35 to 40 kilograms of tomatoes per square meter. These results not only surpass the center’s expectations but also shed light on the tremendous potential of hydroponics in Brazil’s agricultural sector, with implications reaching far beyond the university’s borders.

At the core of this Premium system used for Brazilian student training is the Spacer, a Hydroponic Systems patented innovation that has revolutionized soilless cultivation since 2013. This unique component plays a crucial role by providing effective insulation for the plant roots, raising them a few centimeters above the ground. Its ability to shield plants from diseases and prevent contact with surfaces that could negatively impact their growth, such as sudden temperature changes or water accumulation, represents a significant advancement in modern agriculture.

In this comprehensive system, the gutter plays a prominent role. More than just a support structure, the gutter was designed with a broader vision in mind. It not only provides a solid foundation for the grow bags on the Spacers but also effectively collects drainage generated during the irrigation process. This innovation results not only in significant water-saving during irrigation but also has a positive environmental impact, aligning with the growing concerns of sustainability in modern agriculture.

In addition to increased tomato production, this university has become a beacon of knowledge and innovation for future generations of farmers in Brazil. Its research greenhouse stands as a crucial space for the training of future agricultural minds in the South American country. The investment in technology and collaboration with Hydroponic Systems is proving to be a milestone in the evolution of agriculture in Brazil and an inspiration for the global agricultural community.
