Sweet Basil Project (Ocimum basilicum ‘Genovese’)
H2O Dynamics is proud to present our B-Pod Garden project that demonstrates the powerful and dynamic usage of the B-Pod.
Sweet Basil, Ocimum basilicum ‘Genovese’ seeds were planted in Rock Wool in our nursery. Plants germinated on the second day. When the roots of the seedlings had penetrated the starter cubes they were transplanted to standard 4″ x 4″ media blocks and loaded into the B-Pod rotary growing system.
Fresh basil of the highest quality was harvested every 3 week intervals. Six (6) B-Pod 360’s can produce 120 lbs of fresh basil every 15 to 18 days. Crops are sold to local supermarkets, wholesalers, distributors and institutions.
