Due to the growth of the alternative farming industry, it's understandable that many companies have been looking to manufacture different varieties of nutrient solutions. Those who are more inclined to take on the challenge themselves are not without other options. Thanks to the simple concepts involved in hydroponics and the ever growing flexibility and functionality of the systems, it makes the "do-it-yourselfers" life much easier. Not only easy but also logical - which is the thing we will try to touch on in this post. Check out a few "recipes" for nutrient solutions that can be cooked up with household items.
Our first beta testers received these bad boys (look left) yesterday. Today they are installing them and getting them online. This is a great milestone for us at Osmo Systems and, in passing it, we're starting to really pick up speed.
Over the next few months we plan to ship out 50 units like these to farmers and hobbyists around the country. We've had such great support from you all in our endeavor which culminated in over 100 applications for the beta test itself. We, unfortunately, only have pieces to make 50 units, so we couldn't send one to everyone.
To get a range of feedback, we will be sending units to a range of folks including: a number commercial hydroponics, aquaculture, and aquaponics farms, dedicated hobbyists, entrepreneurs, university professors, and industry consultants. With each few weeks that passes, as we learn from the early testing stages, we plan to send out the next round of units in continuing waves.
A big thank you to all who have waited very patiently for this moment. Some of you having been following us for more than two years. Again, this has been a big week for us, and the future looks very bright.
We'll be sending out an update shortly to our email waitlist (if you're not already on it, signup here), and will be installing a live link of the data coming from a test unit running here in our lab shortly. Over the next few months the themes of this blog will likely shift from its current more informational posts towards product updates as we continue to make progress.
