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.
