WOW!!!! pretty impressive.

Their website states that they don't use any fertilizers. So were do they get their nutrients from?

No mention of AquaPonics. 

Didn't see any Sand Beds or even mentioning Sand.

But they do grow in Grodan rockwool slabs and cubes.

Also they are drip irrigated.

All hydroponic OP... Pretty impressive hey?

The big thing here is they got an exclusive contract to supply all Coles supermarkets tomatoes  nationwide.

For those who do not know. Coles and Woolworths are both part of what is known as the duopoly in Australia.

They are both the largest supermarket chain in Australia by far so to get a ten year contract with Coles is amazing in itself.

Did you notice the changes in the solar capture devices?

Cheers.

Woolworths, 5 & dime, they don't have them here anymore, last time I saw one 20-30 yrs. ago. They had one of the best lunch counters featuring "Blue Plate Special"

Yes, a lot of the same solar farms are being built that way here. Its really neat to see them operate, reminds me of a rocket getting ready for launch/
