GreenQ/Improvement Center trial facility

After just 6 weeks

Algae impacted blocks already starting to reduce oxygen, requiring more water.

  • In 2011, the Green Q/Improvement center began an 11 month trial with tomatoes in a commercial greenhouse, in the Netherlands.
  • The goal of this trial was to verify and document the attributes of the DripCap®.
  • Minimized algae impacted block with DripCap®, maintaining oxygen levels, requiring less water and fertilizer.
