Now, soilless cultivation technology has strongly entered our lives. Soilless cultivation can give full play to the production potential of crops, and compared to traditional soil cultivation, the yield is improved and the growth cycle is shortened. In soilless cultivation, various nutrients required for plant growth are provided through artificially formulated nutrient solutions. According to different types of plants and different stages of growth and development, nutrients can be scientifically supplied and formulated for fertilization. In fact, in animal husbandry, soilless cultivation technology is also playing its role. The intelligent soilless cultivation of forage grass planting method actually uses a hydroponic fodder planting system. Hydroponic fodder can greatly alleviate the problem of forage shortage.
One of the automated hydroponic fodder equipment worth mentioning here is the container fodder system. Let's take a look together.
Container soilless cultivation of fodder is an efficient and automated planting system. Fodder containers can be used to grow many types of grass, including wheat, barley, corn, and other varieties. This planting system is not limited by season and weather, and can produce healthy and fresh fodder at any time. Through it, freedom of fodder production can be perfectly achieved.
Container hydroponic fodder is a new type of animal feed planting mode. This system is automatically controlled by a controller and can be manually adjusted. Container hydroponic fodder system can provide a suitable growth environment for forage growth, while saving energy, water, labor, environmental protection, and health. So what are the advantages of this system?
Automated control saves labor costs
The controller can realize one-touch control of temperature, humidity, lighting, sterilization, ventilation, and other systems. No need for human real-time monitoring, greatly saving labor costs.
Not limited by climate, environment, and spatial resources
Due to the fact that crops grow in constant temperature and humidity container spaces, normal growth can be achieved even in places with harsh climatic conditions, and cultivation can also be carried out in arid deserts and barren Gobi.
Short growth cycle and high yield.
Hydroponic fodder can grow from seeds to a height of 18 to 20 centimeters within 7 days. Generally, one kilogram of seed can be converted into 10 kilograms of fodder within a week after sowing.
High quality and good taste of hydroponic fodder
Some herders worry about whether rapidly growing grass will taste bad. Actually, hydroponic fodder is rich in nutrients, including high energy proteins, amino acids, vitamins, calcium, and other trace elements. In addition, the roots of the grass can also be eaten by animals, which can effectively improve the makeup rate of the fodder.
The emergence of automated hydroponic pasture has broken the contradiction between increased demand for cattle and sheep and land resource constraints. For farmers, even if there is no large area of land resources available for planting, there is no need to worry about the shortage of fodder. Hydroponics system is a very good option for both animal husbandry and crop farming.
