How it works
The nutrient liquid is pumped or fed from a tank or reservoir up to a purpose made tray or gulley. In some cases the trays or gulley is set off ground on a purpose built frame but some growers also use them flat on the ground, either way a gradient is needed to allow the solution to run down the system. The solution then runs down the tray or gully and back into the tank, it is then recirculated and pumped back up again. Larger commercial growers often use a run to waste process which simply means that instead of the solution running back into a tank to be recirculated it is discarded and fresh solution is circulated each time. We will come back to hydroponic nutrient solutions later in this article.

Nutrient Film Technique systems are claimed to be the simplest of all the hydroponics systems to use. For many years NFT (nutrient film technique) has been used by commercial growers and DIY growing enthusiast alike. Unlike other systems of this type the basics of NFT are really easy to grasp for newbie growers and seasoned growers alike.
