Cluster aka On-the-Vine aka Stem Tomatoes – the ones that are some still attached to the vine. Find out how they’re grown from one of the masters as Jon Steffy from ProduceGeek.com does a Q & A with Carl Mastronardi of Del Fresco Produce at one of his greenhouses in Leamington, Ontario, Canada – just of the northern shores of Lake Erie. These tomato plants produce fruit from spring through early with vines that can serpentine up to 50 feet long inside 24 foot high greenhouses. They’re fed fertilizers through the water that is continuously cleaned and recycled. To minimize pesticide use, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is used, introducing “good” bugs that will eat the “bad” bugs that could damage the tomato plants.

    There are several factors in studying aquaponics. One place I found that successfully combines these is the Keiths Ponics Site (google it if you're interested) definately the no.1 course that I've heard of. look at this extraordinary site.

    Technology is cool no doubt but the fact that my food is prolly grown in a lab like that makes me wonder… -_-

    The drawback to hydroponics is you need to purchase "plant food" or nutrition and supplements that are pricey. Aquaponics includes the best parts of Hydroponics And Aquaculture therefore minimize price and also improve work productivity

    Awesome video!  And very good point for all hydroponic growers – be sure to support your branches/fruit clusters to insure continued productive growth.
