  • Rapid root and plant growth – crops can be start­ed lat­er or more rotations/year
  • Faster speed to mar­ket means reduced labor and ener­gy costs
  • Enables opti­mal root branch­ing and penetration
  • Elim­i­nates pot bound roots – roots are “self pruning”

Easy to maintain:

  • Cut­tings estab­lish quickly
  • Water­ing fre­quen­cy reduced
