HOW IT WORKS

HOW
IT
WORKS

All plants release a broad range of natural chemical signals into the rhizosphere (root zone). One of the most important functions of these root exudates is the uptake of water and nutrients.
Plants release root exudates in response to their changing environment. Temperature, wind, rain… and through different stages of growth and development- plants are constantly adapting and growing. Beneath the surface, the life of plants’ is very dynamic.

RDI GrowStream™ is the world’s first water delivery system that uses organic chemistry to allow each and every plant to self-regulate its own water and nutrient delivery. A microporous tube the responds directly to root signals, releasing water and nutrients only when the plant calls for it.

No evaporation. No percolation.
Perfect irrigation allows plants to grow to their maximum potential.

Roots release natural exudates that travel towards GrowStream™ tubing.

GrowStream™ responds to the exudates and releases water nutrients on demand.

NEXUS

Crops are healthier, grow faster and produce more harvests and higher yields.

Unmatchable water efficiency by delivering only what each plant needs- minute by minute, plant by plant.
