Grow With The New Flow
Midwest GROmaster, Inc.:
A new patent-pending overhead Ebb-Flo system was developed to solve two grower problems. Either they didn’t want to tear up existing floors to install new plumbing or they wanted the option to remove some benches to use the space for displays. The new Ebb-Flo system does this while still offering the benefits of the standard Ebb-Flo benches including savings of water, fertilizer and labor; lower humidity; lower disease levels; and less need for fungicides.
