Mobile Gully System solutions
What is the MGS?
A Mobile Gully System consists of a growing field of plant gullies. The plants (lettuces, herbs, kale, cauliflower etc.) automatically move from the planting area to the harvesting area. Depending on the targeted end weight and cultivar of the crop, Hortiplan designs each MGS specifically to meet your needs. This is why MGS always provides the highest possible plant density at all stages of growth.
A plant in the initial phase is smaller than a plant in the harvesting phase. As a consequence, it does not need that much space compared to a plant just before it is harvested. MGS automatically guarantees that each plant has the optimum space between the gullies, in each stage of growth.
The hydroponic method already offers many advantages compared to traditional farming such as better hygiene, reduced risk of soil contamination and controlled plant nutrition by means of the Nutrient Film Technique. Additionally, our innovative MGS technology creates added value in terms of higher automated space efficiency and labor requirements.
