Before choosing which production method you will primarily use to grow produce on your farm, it’s important to understand the construction, biology and proper design factors of each. Here’s an intro to each of the most popular modern production methods with Dr. Nate Storey. We strongly recommend that every student complete this course before choosing their primary growing technique.
In this course, you will learn what each method is, how it works, and the important decision-making factors based on the construction, biology, and design for the following methods:
- Deep Water Culture (DWC)/Raft
- Nutrient Film Technique (NFT)
- Media beds
- Bato buckets
This course is taught by Dr. Nate Storey. This is the first course of the 1030’s series, which will cover each method in detail.
