Nowadays, many regions are vigorously developing the aquaculture industry, so the development of aquaculture feed is essential. If all the feed for breeding relies on purchasing, it will greatly increase the breeding cost and greatly reduce profits. So many people choose to plant their own fodder to reduce breeding costs and increase breeding profits.The growth of fodder, like other crops, is inseparable from light, heat, air, water, and nutrients, among which water and nutrients are mainly supplied through the soil.
At present, there are many types of fodder on the market, but the cultivation of fodder is relatively single, mainly relying on soil planting.But we all know that although China has a vast territory, the quantity of arable land is decreasing and the quality of some areas is also deteriorating. How to effectively balance the growing demand for fodder and the continuous decrease in arable land is a problem that we need to consider.
Developing Hydroponic Fodder To Solve The Problem Of Fodder Shortage.
Hydroponic fodder is a soilless cultivation technique. This hydroponic fodder is a product that grows rapidly without relying on soil under the action of water and nutrient solution. Hydroponic fodder has a short growth cycle and can provide uninterrupted feed supply to farmers without occupying arable land resources. At this point, some people may wonder: this rapidly growing hydroponic forage does not have much nutrition, right?
This idea is wrong. On the contrary, the nutrient content in hydroponic forage is higher than that in soil grown forage, due to the specificity of the hydroponic forage system.Fodder grown through hydroponic cultivation can be harvested in 7 days, with a cycle of 7 days. Generally, one kilogram of seeds can be converted into 8 kilograms of forage within one week after sowing.
At the same time, hydroponic fodder has high protein and amino acid content, and is rich in various enzymes and minerals such as chlorophyll and vitamins. It can be produced all year round, with high yield and water-saving, which can play a significant role in forage shortage and ecological protection.
How to carry out hydroponic fodder planting?
Hydroponic Fodder Grown Indoors and Hydroponic Fodder Container System are all equipment for hydroponic cultivation of fodder.The hydroponic fodder system can be automatically controlled. Automatically adjust the temperature, humidity, light, and nutrient supply within the hydroponic system through an intelligent system. Provide a sterile and pollution-free growth environment for grass. In addition, the setting of the control system can be adjusted accurately based on the variety of forage, adjusting the germination and nutrient solution of the planting board, and shortening the growth cycle of the forage.Taking barley grass as an example,The growth cycle of hydroponic barley grass is shortened by only about 7 days. One kilogram of seeds can grow around 6 kilograms of hydroponic barley grass. Meanwhile, the digestion rate of hydroponic barley grass by livestock is much higher than that of ordinary barley grass by about 40%.
Perhaps there are still many questions in people's minds about this planting mode, such as whether this hydroponic equipment is generally affordable for herdsmen? Is hydroponic technology easy to master? These issues will be revealed to everyone in the next issue.
