The standard analysis of growing media at NRM is carried out to the BS EN 13040 standard.
The nutrient solutions used in NFT must contain all the elements essential to plant growth. Experiments have shown that plants take up and use a great number of elements whilst being grown.
It is a feature of a successful nutrient solution to contain an excess of essential elements and yet the total solution concentration remains below the level at which unacceptable interference with water uptake occurs.
NRM’s NFT/water analytical suites provide our customers with the levels of these nutrients so as to make informed management decisions.
