Agricultural technology is the primary driving force for agricultural development. Since the founding of the People's Republic of China, especially since the reform and opening up, China's agriculture has made significant progress, among which agricultural technology has played a huge role.
The future of agriculture is truly a high-tech industry.Soilless cultivation agriculture is the most important component of technological agriculture. Soilless cultivation includes hydroponics, aeroponic culture, and substrate culture, among others. Aerosol cultivation is the most technologically advanced planting technique in the entire soilless cultivation system.
What is the aeroponic planting?
Aeroponic planting is also called spray culture and aerosol culture.It is a new type of soilless cultivation mode in which plant roots grow in a closed and opaque space, and nutrient solution is treated by a atomizer to form a mist, which is intermittently and evenly sprayed onto the plant roots to provide the necessary water and nutrients for plant growth.
This kind of culture is easy to realize automatic control and three-dimensional cultivation, and has a high utilization rate of space.Aeroponic culture is divided into aeroponic planting culture and semi aeroponic planting culture based on whether the plant roots are immersed in nutrient solution.
There are many advantages of Aeroponic planting. Firstly, the oxygen supply to the roots is very sufficient, making it difficult to cause root hypoxia that affects crop growth. The utilization rate of water and fertilizer is also relatively high, and crops absorb nutrients well. In terms of planting space, it also improves space utilization efficiency, which is two to three times higher than that of flat form soilless cultivation.
What are the applications of aeroponic planting culture?
When it comes to aerosol cultivation, the aeroponic tower system is a necessary planting system. Aeroponic tower planting is a combination of aerosol method and tower system, which gives it the advantages of both.This planting system not only occupies a small space, but also is particularly automated.This planting system is particularly suitable for indoor planting in households, as it does not take up space and is also aesthetically pleasing.
The use of aerosol cultivation in container farms is also a very good choice. Container farms are a new type of farm that allows crops to grow in renewable containers, providing them with sufficient nutrition and suitable temperature and humidity. Container farms can achieve uninterrupted crop cultivation throughout the year. With the support of aeroponic cultivation technology, crop yield can also be increased.
The hydroponic planting system immerses plants in nutrient solution to ensure their nutrient absorption. In the aeroponic planting culture, the roots of plants are directly exposed to the air, and the roots come into direct contact with the air. Nutrient solution is regularly sprayed from the fog nozzle, continuously dissolving oxygen in the air, providing plant root respiration and promoting root respiration metabolism. The water and nutrient utilization efficiency under the aerosol cultivation mode is much higher than that of general soilless cultivation.Aeroponic planting is the driving force behind the progress of high-tech agriculture.
