Crops in the desert. NGS Hydroponic System for Extreme Weather

Climate change is accelerating the loss of agricultural land and harming agriculture in arid and semi-arid areas. The only way to maintain production in this type of area, is from new technologies that guarantee the success of crops in the desert.

The production of crops in the desert and arid lands in general, has advantages such as low level of diseases and pests which allows the application of simple phytosanitary measures or introducing auxiliary organisms, as well as evaporation of salt water and the manual weeding.


NGS System for Extreme Weather


In order to make it possible for growing in these conditions, NGS has developed a technology especially for extreme climates. It is based on the NGS polyethylene recirculation gutters, which are used worldwide for horticultural crops without any substrate. This technique has been designed focus on economic viability, production parameters and large scale commercial production.




The new extended system for extreme climates is built on this proven technique. Thanks to new innovations, the NGS has managed to cool the grow room without using water. This makes this system a milestone in water efficiency.


Cooling is carried out thanks to the 5.94 MW microgrid which the system is equipped. This off-grid microgrid combines photovoltaic and diesel energy with battery energy storage, and electronic equipment with management and control of microgrids in real time to control the operation of the greenhouse.
