Grow-Tech LLC recently announced the release of BioStrate Felt, a biobased textile specifically engineered for the growing of hydroponic microgreens and baby salad greens.
BioStrate Felt was developed in-house with the support of USDA funding and is manufactured in Maine. The blend of biopolymers and natural fibers is designed to manage water efficiently for optimal growth in a variety of hydroponic systems.
BioStrate Felt is the first in a range of products in development using Grow-Tech’s biopolymer technology platform.
“We have been fortunate to be able to use our experience in the horticulture sector combined with a close collaboration with innovators in the hydroponics sector to develop a new substrate that meets the needs of this fast growing market,” says Edwin Dijkshoorn, Grow-Tech’s CEO.
Grow-Tech’s technical sales team can work directly with growers to custom cut the product to perfectly fit the grower’s systems.
