Sodium Accumulation in Hydroponic Systems
Sodium accumulation is an ongoing problem in hydroponic systems.
It affects both Recirculating Systems (accumulation in the nutrient solution) as well as Run to Waste Systems (accumulation in the growing media).
Failure to identify and mitigate the affects of sodium accumulation will result in loss of production, slow growth, hard growth, increased tip burn, root diseases and related problems associated with calcium and other nutrient deficiencies.
The attached article gives an in depth assessment of sodium accumulation and how to avoid its effects.
