Kale can be grown both hydroponically and in the field. Hydroponics is simply growing plants with nutrients and water without the need for soil. The benefits of growing hydroponically are many including; less land surface required, elimination of soil borne pests and diseases and less water usage. A hydroponic crop will use 10% of the water it takes to grow the same crop in the field.
The Hydro Produce family has been farming since the 1940’s and was an early pioneer in growing Kale for the Australian commercial market.
Our key farming location for Kale is Peats Ridge NSW. Here we grow Kale hydroponically all year round, we harvest daily on demand and send fresh to stores across the country.
