The rise of soilless cultivation has taken planting to a higher level, and many people are puzzled about how to carry out soilless cultivation of tuber crops. In fact, hydroponic cultivation is very common in daily life, such as hydroponic chlorophytum comosum, hydroponic green pineapple, etc. But when it comes to aeroponic cultivation, fewer people may know, and even more so, aeroponic cultivation of potatoes is unheard of. In fact, tuberous plants are easy to reproduce. Cutting off the robust top buds from the tubers, which are 6-8 centimeters long, can be used as planting materials.
Aeroponic cultivation is a new type of soilless cultivation. It uses a spray device to atomize the nutrient solution into small droplets, which are directly sprayed to the roots of plants to provide water and nutrition for plant growth. The plant roots in the aeronic environment are completely in an integrated environment of water, air, and fertilizer, which can fully unleash the growth potential of plants. Aeroponics can also effectively avoid continuous cropping problems caused by soil cultivation.
Rhizome plants often have continuous cropping obstacles. Taking potatoes as an example, when traditional soil is used to grow potatoes, the same variety needs to be replaced with a brand new variety after about 5 years of cultivation. This is because long-term cultivation of potatoes has already produced "toxins", which actually means that the bacteria inside potatoes can lead to abnormal growth, small size, frequent diseases, etc., ultimately resulting in extremely low yield of potatoes and no longer suitable for large-scale cultivation. Aeroponic potatoes can be grown in greenhouses, with a very low probability of occurrence compared to traditional pests and diseases. And aeroponic potatoes are very cost-effective in terms of labor costs. It is also very convenient to manage, just open the fog culture box, and you can easily and conveniently record growth data.
Tuber plants have high water content, low crude fiber content, abundant carotenoids, and high trace elements of potassium and chlorine. This type of plant occupies a high position in our daily life, and the aeroponic tower system of tuber crops can provide us with a safer and more reliable food supply.
