CUSTOMER PROFILE -
Peter & Denise Galvin have been commercially producing hydroponic
lettuce, tomatoes, herbs and other small crops for several years
at their Mt Kelly farm in North Queensland using Ell-Gro products.
The Galvins can plant and harvest
52 weeks of the year. They produce their own lettuce seedlings
which take about 5 weeks to develop. The young lettuce is then
transplated to the Ell-Gro hydroponic polypropylene pipe where
within 3 weeks it is ready for harvest.
Peter Galvin said the hydroponics
industry would take off in the future because of the environmentally
friendly nature of the process. "We have less insect problems
because the vegetables are grown off the ground and therefore
we don't use much insecticides," he said.
