Baseline trays were designed specifically to optimise nutrient/water circulation and reduce root-zone diseases.
Plants growing in soil or coco require a minimum run-off of 10% to ensure the substrate has been consistently saturated with nutrient solution. Using a tray or saucer means this run-off will collect meaning the plants are stationary in the liquid which is detrimental to the root zone. Healthy roots thrive in oxygenated liquid as opposed to waterlogged roots which are susceptible to problems such as mildew, bud rot or pythium and excessive humidity.
The baseline tray was developed to be positioned directly underneath the plant containers the same as a tray or saucer. The difference is, the baseline tray elevates the container substantially above the run-off with the added benefit of being able to pipe the excess nutrients to either a drain (run-to-waste system) or re-directing the solution back through the system (recirculating system) utilising the pre-drilled holes which can accommodate 13mm or 25mm piping.
