Bato Bucket Systems
For vine crop production, we recommend the Dutch bucket or Bato bucket growing system. Crops like tomatoes, cucumbers, melons and peppers are perfect for this hydroponic growing method. CropKing Bato buckets are UV resistant and made of high-quality plastic that can be used repeatedly over several years. The Bato bucket offers quality and security when growing high value crops, and the Bato bucket system is a practical and cost-effective vine crop system for hydroponic farming.
Bato buckets are designed to be fed by an emitter and measure 12” long x 10” wide x 9” tall. Two small siphon elbows are included to keep a small reservoir of nutrients in the bottom of the bucket, about 2” in depth. This nutrient reservoir keeps the growing media from drying out and prevents water stress on the plant between irrigation cycles.
