Organic fertilisers for aeroponics


Project objectives

This project is aiming to identify a suitable organically-derived liquid fertiliser for microgreens. It also hopes to establish the best method of application in an aeroponic system. Trials will determine whether the fertilisers have a positive effect on the phytonutrient and flavour properties of the microgreens. This would be the first time that organically-derived fertilisers have been tested with aeroponic growing systems and could enable growers to produce microgreens in an increasingly sustainable way.
