lettuce grown on RAS and hydroponic water

Lettuce Growth Experiment

Today, Simon has started a lettuce growth experiment together with Tycho Vermeulen in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands. We are going to assess to what degree micro organisms in RAS water have an impact on lettuce growth by adding it to a hydroponic solution. The control group is a standard hydroponic nutrient solution for lettuce. We expect this experiment to take 8 weeks, and publishing the results somewhen mid of next year. Cheers!
