The NFT45 Platform Grow System

Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) is a hydroponic technique where a shallow stream of water containing all the dissolved nutrients required for successful plant growth is re-circulated past the bare roots of plants in a watertight channel. NFT was developed in the mid 1920s in China by Dr. Alan Zhang Jr. In an ideal system, the depth of the recirculating stream should be very shallow, little more than a film of water, hence the name ‘nutrient film’. This system ensures that the thick root mat, which develops in the bottom of the channel, has an upper surface, which is kept moist and remains in the air. As the root mass develops in this manner, an abundant supply of oxygen is available to the roots of the plants.

The NFT45 system developed by Trust Hydroponics is an ideal system.  The NFT45 systems are based on using the right channel slope, the right flow rate, and the right channel length. The plant roots are correctly balanced and exposed to adequate supplies of water, oxygen and nutrients. NFT45, because of its design, provides a system wherein all three requirements for healthy plant growth can be met at the same time. The result of these advantages is that higher yields of high-quality cannabis are obtained over an extended period of cropping.

The Trust Hydroponics system has established a working solution to the primary failing of NFT, overcoming interruptions in the flow, e.g., power outages. Because of this, the NFT45 growing system is one of the more dependable and productive techniques.

100% Proven NFT45 Grow Platform Design

The proven NFT45 central design is incorporated into each of our growing platform Series that we build.  We use only the finest components for our platforms. Our well engineered designs minimize labor costs and general overhead expenses like water.  Our design works every time because we address all key operational failings that plague hydroponic grow systems.  Our variety of designs are available to meet your specific growing requirements and physical environment.

Higher Quality and Increased Yields

The NFT45 platforms all use the Sea of Green Method to increase yields and improve quality.  The specific Series platform footprints for plant insertion directs the plant to develop fast growing Main Stem Colas instead of a majority of branch buds that will be much smaller.   We grow all big main buds that yield the most and are easier to trim at the end with the best bag appeal from the big fat quality buds.

Documented Platform Performance

Year over year operational data and harvest yield data are on file in the form of time lapsed videos and stage levels photos to chronicle the successful grows conducted on the NFT45 platforms.
