Scarcity of available water and environmental legislation on emissions force growers to use water more efficiently. An overview will be given of the most promising technologies to improve the Water Use Efficiency in low-tech, mid-tech and high-tech greenhouses, as even in the latter case WUE can still be improved.

The Biota Nutri Calculator by itself is a product. However this product is also a service by giving customized fertilizer recipe advice. Advisors and non Biota users can use it. So overall we are talking about an all-in-one-concept. It enables you to gradual shift to organic growing step by step. This calculator can be used for all water soluble fertilizer types & brands and many cultivation systems

Willem van Baak, Water Future
Ridder and Water Future teamed up to create sensible solutions for emission free cultivation. In 2019, this resulted in the GreenTech Innovation Sustainability Award for their sodium removal solution. With the introduction of a new efficient solution to recover nitrate from drain water, another important piece of the puzzle is completed.
