What is Hydroponics?
All you need to know about Hydroponic System.
Why Hydroponic is the future of farming?
ADVANTAGES OF HYDROPONICS
An extended growing season
In a hydroponics system, plants can be grown hydroponically year-round because the grower controls the temperature, light, and nutrient-supply. For leafy we can get Multiple crop cycles all around the year.
Improved growth and yield
Hydroponics systems typically result in faster-growing, higher-yielding plants. This is likely due to the increased oxygen levels found in the nutrient solution and the carefully controlled environmental factors. By increasing a plant’s oxygen levels, you stimulate root growth and enhance nutrient uptake. These optimal growing conditions equate to less stress on plants and a more bountiful harvest.
Higher plant density
Plants grown in soil have rigid spacing guidelines that must be followed to allow each plant equal access to the soil’s somewhat limited supply of water and nutrients. Because hydroponics systems deliver a more nutrient-charged solution to the root zone, plants can be grown closer together without competing for root space.
Can grow anywhere
Unlike traditional gardens that require outdoor space for plants, hydroponics systems are easily incorporated into many homes, regardless of their size or location.
Less water consumption
Even though hydroponic systems depend primarily on water to grow plants; they use between 80 to 90% less water than plants grown in the ground.
Fewer pest problems
Because hydroponics systems are indoors, pests aren’t as prevalent and have controlled entrances. Insects find it more challenging to infiltrate the system and attack plants. Plus, fewer pest problems mean little to no need for pesticides.
Easier to harvest mature plants
Plants grown in hydroponics systems are typically grown on counters, benches, tables, etc., which puts them at waist height for most growers. At this height, mature plants are easier to harvest.
Nutrient film technique systems are perfect for large-scale and commercial endeavors. Once you have one channel set up and functioning, it is very easy to expand.
TYPES OF HYDROPONICS
Deep water culture hydroponics are simply plants suspended in aerated water. Deep water culture systems, also known as a DWC system, are one of the easiest methods of hydroponics on the market. A DWC system dangles net pots holding plants over a deep reservoir of oxygen-rich nutrient solution. The plant’s roots are submerged in the solution, providing it with perpetual access to nutrition, water, and oxygen.
Nutrient film technique (NFT) systems suspend plants above a stream of continuously flowing nutrient solution that washes over the ends of the plant’s root systems. NFT is the most widely used hydroponics technique for commercial hydroponics. The channels holding the plants are tilted, allowing water to run down the length of the grow tray before draining into the reservoir below. A submersible pump then pumps the nutrient-rich water out of the reservoir and back to the top of the channel.
A Dutch bucket, or Bato bucket, is a hydroponic system in which two or more growing containers are connected to the same irrigation and drainage lines. This is an incredibly water- and nutrient-efficient method, ideal for growing heavy-feeding and vining plants like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.Know more
Aeroponics systems suspend plants in the air and expose the naked roots to a nutrient-filled mist. Aeroponics systems are enclosed frameworks, like cubes or towers, that can hold a multitude of plants at once. Water and nutrients are stored in a reservoir, and then pumped to a nozzle that atomizes the solution and distributes it as a fine mist. Aeroponics systems use less water than any other form of hydroponics.
What to Expect
OF COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE
Agriplast Advisory Service
We can handle everything for you!
Agricultural advisory services have long been recognized as an important factor in promoting agricultural development. The main objective of Agricultural Advisory is to increase farmers’ access to information, knowledge, and technology for profitable agricultural production.
Why Choose Agriplast Hydroponics
We provide best automation system in the industry to our all-hydroponics project.
Our automation system monitor and control all important parameters of the hydroponics set up. Using the IOT technology complete system can be accessed via Computer , tablet or smartphone.
We are the channel partner with Industry auto grow New Zealand for hydroponics set up automation System.
EBB & FLOW NURSERY
Agriplast uses ebb and flow technology for the nursery of the plants. Ebb and flow gives best results as each net pot get same uniform water and nutrient.
After certain weeks Net pot directly can be shifted from Ebb and Flow to NFT system and ready for next lot.
Ebb and flow has separate circulation pumps and tank than NFT system which makes nutrient management easy and efficient.
Training and Support
Agriplast has Inhouse subject experts in all the aspects of Greenhouse and Hydroponics who leads our project team in PAN India and more than 15 countries.
Agriplast give complete training of hydroponics onsite to each of its project which ensure that every ground staff get the understanding of complete system.
Complete support right from seed selection till harvest is provided to ensure the project success.
