Hydroponic sod

Laeka(BaltMDz6b)November 3, 2004

Has anyone tried this in any way, shape or form? I've seen several on-line ads for companies that do it but the cost of a franchise start at $65k. Seems that if you had a good grass blend with some bluegrass in it for stolons you wouldn't need much of a substrate to grow on. Maybe use NFT?

I don't think growing the sod would be the problem, having it adapt to field conditions after transplant might be.

Where are you finding material on hydro sod? I donÂt know if this helps but I found some info on fodder. Mist & run to waste systems are often used for hydro fodder although NFT systems are advertised. You could experiment by building your own system. Here is a picture of a NFT channel for fodder which you could probably build yourself:
