Description

These Hydroponics raft boards are specifically designed for use in both aquaponic and hydroponic deep water culture growing systems. The boards are made with XPS sheets which resists water penetration and ensures durability and heat insulation to nutrient solution.

In a deep water culture (DWC) method, also known as the raft method or floating system. The raft boards are made from food grade polystyrene, and designed specifically for leaf green crop production. In this style of growing, the nutrient-rich water is circulated through long canals at a depth of about 8 inches while rafts (usually polystyrene) float on top. Plants grown in various grow plugs, rockwool or growgrips fit into the raft board. The plant roots hang down in the nutrient-rich, oxygenated water, where they absorb large amounts of oxygen and nutrients which contribute to rapid growth conditions.

This method is the most common for large commercial aquaponics growing leafy green crops such as lettuce, kale, chard, mustard, collards, basil, mint and most herbs. While most aquaponic farms employee deep water culture raft based systems, rafts can also be added to extend the function of media bed aquaponic systems.

Our raft boards are made from food grade polystyrene, and designed specifically for leaf green crop production.  In this style of growing, the nutrient-rich water is circulated through long canals at a depth of about 8 inches while rafts (usually polystyrene) float on top.
