The Smart Tray and AutoPot CapPlus capillary table are
versatile irrigation systems that can be used by both the
greenhouse gardener and the commercial grower alike.
The Smart Tray system consists of a SmartValve controlling
the flow of nutrient rich water to a tray. The potted plants are
sat in the tray. By using pots, the grower has a wider choice
of mediums like coir, rockwool and soil mixes. The pots can
be removed and easily transferred to other Trays allowing
quick and simple access to differing nutrient solutions at
different stages of growth. The trays can be interlinked to
provide bigger systems.
The AutoPot CapPlus capillary table uses a flat bed with a
channel in it. A SmartValve controls the flow of water to the
channel. Capillary matting is placed on the table so that it
allows the water to be taken up. This is done by feeding one
edge into the channel. The plants, in pre-watered pots, are
placed on the capillary matting which has first been watered
by hand. The advantages of this Smart Tray are immediately
apparent. It allows the grower to achieve excellent results
with the minimum of supervision. Provided there is always a
constant supply of water to the tank the system only needs
the normal health checks. As there is no run off or
recirculation there is no deterioration in the nutrient quality
reaching the plants. A regular purge using a water only tank
can be performed with ease and no loss of expensive
nutrient, as can the change to a flowering stage nutrient.
