Hydroponic farmers’ needs are vastly different from traditional farmers, and their hygienic needs vary greatly. Because hydroponic plants are grown without exposure to outdoor hazards, there is no need to wash the actual produce. But hydroponic farming poses unique challenges, specifically with keeping growing containers and stations sanitary.
If not cleaned properly, fungi from bins can infect other plants placed in the same container. BE’s provides superior cleaning of containers, hoses, nozzles, and other elements where bacteria, debris, and soil hiding, breeding potentially harmful contaminants that taint the product. To prevent these harmful contaminants from spreading out of products, tools, reusable produce bins, buckets, totes, and other containers should be cleaned after each harvest.
Cleaning of these items by hand takes up excessive amounts of valuable staff time and can be easily automated and address with cleaning systems. Our cleaning systems and prioritization of food safety management exponentially lowers the risk of food-borne illnesses and increase productivity and sustainability.
