Established in 1983 by owners Bob & Nancy Kilgore, Brogue Hydroponics has grown from one greenhouse of butterhead lettuce to six-plus greenhouses filled with a wide variety of lettuces, herbs, edible flowers, garnishes, tomatoes, red raspberries, potted plants and hanging baskets. We here at Brogue Hydroponics pride ourselves with bringing only the freshest and best to our customers.
Our Method of Growing: Hydroponics is a technology for growing plants in nutrient solutions (water containing fertilizers) with or without the use of an artificial medium (we use perlite & peat moss) to provide support.
Our Hydroponic system is a closed system; meaning surplus solution is recovered, replenished, and recycled. In combination with greenhouses, hydroponic growing is highly productive, conservative of water and land, and protective of the environment.
We use Integrative Pest Management in all of our greenhouses. In technical terms, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the coordinated use of pest and environmental information with available pest control methods to prevent unacceptable levels of pest damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
To simplify; we introduce natural enemies of insect pests to our greenhouses to control damage to our plants, only when absolutely necessary do we use pesticides and those we do use are certified organic.
