The Grodan 550 x 370 x 150mm Rockwool Slab Crop Box is a hydroponic growing medium designed for use in commercial or large-scale indoor growing operations.
The slab is made from rockwool, a type of mineral wool that is manufactured by melting rock or slag at high temperatures and then spinning the molten material into fibers. Rockwool has excellent water retention properties and is resistant to mold and other plant pathogens, making it an ideal substrate for hydroponic growing.
The dimensions of the slab are 550 x 370 x 150mm, which is designed to fit into a standard-sized crop box. The crop box provides a stable and uniform environment for the plants to grow and allows for easy management of the nutrient solution and irrigation system.
The Grodan 550 x 370 x 150mm Rockwool Slab Crop Box is popular among commercial growers due to its high-quality construction and consistent performance. It can be used for a wide range of crops, including tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and herbs, and can be easily integrated into automated irrigation and nutrient delivery systems.
It's important to note that rockwool can be irritating to the skin and lungs, so appropriate safety precautions should be taken when handling the material. Additionally, proper disposal of used rockwool is necessary to avoid environmental contamination.
