Step forward in growing strawberries thanks to the Saturn Bioponics system

The hydroponic cultivation of strawberries through the Saturn Bioponics system is an important step forward for cultivation. Thanks to its reliable systems in coconut fiber or peat, the Saturn Bioponics system provides a better environment for the root, direct control over the nutrition of the plant, maximum water efficiency and a very low incidence of diseases.

Strawberry cultivation through the hydroponic system Saturn Bioponics, offered by Idromeccanica Lucchini, is very advantageous for the grower. Years of research and experimentation by Lucchini, together with the experience gained in decades of activity, guarantee an advanced hardware systems, supported by the advice provided by the input specialists.

The technical support of Idromeccanica Lucchini provides customers with all the tools necessary to optimize production:
· The right irrigation and nutrition strategy
· The optimization of the root area
· Continuous monitoring

All this guarantees a product of longer conservation, more robust, with better taste and appearance, and of higher nutritional values, thanks also to the better quality of the strawberry plants.

Idromeccanica Lucchini has long experimented with hydroponics and the Saturn Bioponics system, gaining an enviable know-how on the subject. Nine years of research and four years of commercial experimentation have led to testing over 200 varieties of crops, with more than 250 harvest cycles. Over 1.3 million plants have been grown, in order to provide customers, whether they are SME farmers or Blue Chip companies, with the best solutions.

But why choose Saturn Bioponics?
Hydroponics technology allows for adaptable and high density growth systems, which offer the best cost/benefit ratio and a significant economic efficiency. New materials and a strategic crop management are key to an optimal production performance.

The resulting benefits are an increase in productivity of about four times, a faster development of crops, a uniform harvest, more time available for production throughout the year and an improvement in safety; all of this increases the quality of the product, which is therefore saleable with a yield of 100%. The density is 214,000-285,000 plants per hectare.

Even from an ethical and ecological point of view, the Saturn Bioponics hydroponic system represents a significant step forward. A strong and efficient automation improves the quality of the job, which is made easier. The optimization of water and soil resources allows to obtain a low environmental impact, no polluting residue and less waste of soil.

Idromeccanica Lucchini will be able to provide continuous assistance for the application of hydroponic science, managed directly by a specialist in strawberries.
