Leafy greens and herbs

In 2018 Meteor Systems introduced the Hydroponic Floating Raft. The innovative floating raft for the cultivation of leafy greens and herbs.

Hydroponic floating raft

As a grower of leafy greens or herbs, you want a clean crop. In other words, no pathogens or contamination on the rafts. Our rafts are made of HDPE plastic which is easy to clean and has a longer life span. Due to the unique shape of the planting hole, the raft is suitable for both traditional substrate plugs and substrate-free cultivation. Meteor Systems has developed a new, patented plant holder for substrate-free cultivation.

Advantage

  • Easy to clean
  • Long life span
  • All plants are the same distance from the water surface
  • Plants are easier to remove from rafts due to the unique shape of the plant holes
  • Slower increase in temperature on plant side
  • Planting holes can vary in shape and size (on request)
  • Can be easily handled, both automatically and manually
  • Due to the unique shape of the planting hole, the floating rafts are suitable for cultivation with or without substrate
  • No more watering from above

Multi-layer Germination | Propagation | Growing Rack  

Meteor Systems designs and produces multi-layer racks for greenhouse use.
These racks have many great benefits

  • Shorter growing cycle from seed to young plant and suitable for all automated hydroponic growing systems.
  • High plant density per square metre.
  • Ergonomically designed.
  • Growing off the ground ensures high plant uniformity.


All in all, a vertical growing rack from Meteor Systems achieves an optimal plant density coupled with labour and energy savings. With our Vertical Germination/Raising/Growing Rack, Meteor Systems is taking vertical growing to a whole new level by maximising yields per square metre while keeping investment, labour and energy costs down.
