Growing without soil!? Tupur makes it happen

It may seem counterintuitive to suggest that a gardener forgo soil completely for their grow, but here are some of the problems a professional horticulturalist may have with soil…

For professional growers, their agriculture is what they depend on, so taking a chance on soil that could end up ruining even a portion of their grow. This is where soilless growing mediums come into play for agriculturalists that want to start with a blank slate where they control how much water, and what nutrients, the plants get from germination until harvest. A soilless medium is a mix of mediums like peat, coco coir, and basalt that can be used in a hydroponic system or in pots and is free of contaminants, has great aeration and drainage abilities, and can allow the grower to apply whatever mix of nutrients they feel is right for their crop.
