"The solubility and nutrient absorption by plants are incredible"

With a 2,800m2 greenhouse, Daniel Fonseca from Brazil can't empahsize enough his satisfication with Haifa water soluble fertilizers. "I won't replace them with any other product. The results are immediate"  

Ten years of hydroponic lettuce research

Abstract: This review article describes the highlights of ten years of hydroponic lettuce (Lactuca sativa; butterhead lettuce) research conducted at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY, USA) throughout most of the nineties. Both the nutrient film technique (NFT) and the deep flow system were used for experimentation.

The old concept of maintaining a balance of pests and predators/parasitoids does not work in a crop where any insect or mite found on the plants is a negative.

Hydroponic Lettuce Handbook

Abstract: This hydroponic greenhouse production system was designed for small operations to provide local production of head lettuce as well as employment to the proprieters. Our research group has experimented with many forms of hydroponics but have found this floating system to be the most robust and forgiving of the available systems.
