Natural Control

The Kekkilä Natural Control grow boards boards, are a sustainable choice for your vegetables and strawberries; production does not require energy-consuming technology and they save water and nutrients when growing.

The Natural Control grow boards also prevent the leaching of nutrients into the surrounding environment. The boards can safely be dried out to steer the growth as desired. The boards are economical to transport due to their compressed size and light weight. After growth, the used boards can subsequently be used as a soil improvement by mixing this nutrient-rich material with existing soil. The hydroponic substrates are most suitable for use in temperate climates and for use with artificial light.
