NFT (nutrient film technique) is superior to DWC (deep water culture) and media filled beds (like hydroton). However, it’s weakness is that it’s largely incompatible with growing root crops like radishes, carrots, and beets (and definitely potatoes). If I want to incorporate the growing of these crops in my new NFT-centric aquaponics, I need a solution. In this video I talk about three options. A long, open channel that functions like a small media bed, and two wicking solutions: one that uses a tube to contain a wicking substrate that fits in the 2″ holes in the NFT channel, and another that uses a row of small square pots. All of these will be prototyped in the future.
Could you help me and my channel out?
