In the eastern-most bay will by a 36 x 96 hydroponic lettuce production unit using NFT, the Nutrient Film Technique.  This method of growing is popular worldwide because of its efficiency and high production rates.  The plants are grown in channels in which a thin film of nutrient solution continuously flows.  This system can produce as many as 1500 heads of lettuce/week.

The space just north of the NFT lettuce system will be used for seed germination and plant propagation.  Specially designed tables will provide the proper moisture, temperature and air circulation to the germinating seeds.  Once at the seedling stage, the small plants will be transplanted into the appropriate culture system.
