A new system for growing vegetables will use less water and produce less carbon pollution — a win for the farmer, the consumer and the environment. Queensland hydroponic vegetable grower Ray Bertinazzi has been funded by a Woolworths Fresh Food Future grant, administered by Landcare Australia, to install a water-recycling system sourced from the Netherlands that will enable him to grow vegetables using a third of the usually required water and fertiliser. The system sterilises used hydroponic water that, in the past, would have been dumped and redirects the clean water back into the hydroponic system or out onto field crops. More than 70 per cent of the carbon pollution generated by vegetable growing stems from the use of electricity and fertiliser. Because Ray now only has to extract one lot of bore water to produce up to three crops, he is saving significantly on these resources, as well as on water. It makes a big difference to the carbon footprint of vegetable production.
