Hydroponic fodder is produced by hydroponics, and it can grow in 7 days. You can grow hydroponic fodder in containers, or build a hydroponic fodder factory. If you want to grow indoors, you can refer to these planting techniques.
We planted hydroponic fodder indoors. During this period, we only used hydroponics, and did not use other things such as nutrient solution and chemical fertilizers. The fodder grown was fresh and green, and the roots were white and clean without mold. It is a good ration for cattle and sheep.
Let's take a look at how we successfully planted hydroponic fodder in 7 days.
Step 1: We first weighed a kilogram of barley seeds to see how much fodder we can harvest after 7 days. Because barley grows better, our first choice is barley seeds.
Step 2: Wash the barley seeds.
Spread the cleaned barley seeds on the 85 tray after germinating, and then we put the tray into our sprout machine
and wait for the barley to grow.
Hydroponic Fodder Growth
The next day: The hydroponic fodder we planted indoors has broken out, and the green buds are still growing.
Day 4: At this time, we measured the height of the hydroponic fodder, and the hydroponic fodder has reached a height of 12-14 cm. The fodder is fresh and green, very gratifying.
Day 6: The hydroponic fodder has grown to about 18 cm. The roots of the fodder are free from mold growth and are very clean. A tray of fodder weighs 8.3 kg. You can imagine the weight after harvest.
Day 7: At this time, the grass has reached a height of 19-20 cm. We can harvest hydroponic fodder now. At this time, the fodder is like a green blanket, which is very heavy. If you pick it up, it will feel very heavy.
In the process of planting fodder, we only used water for cultivation this time, and the effect is also very good. However, many people will have many problems in the process of planting hydroponic fodder, such as:
-Moldy, smelly and bacterial growth on hydroponic fodder roots
-Hydroponic fodder yellowing
- Hydroponic fodder growth is not high
The above problems, especially the problem of moldy roots, will appear in many people during the planting process, and the planted fodder animals will affect their health if they eat it, and animals do not like to eat it. The roots of the hydroponic fodder we plant are clean and will not become moldy or smelly, which is why many people communicate with us about hydroponic technology.
We grow hydroponic fodder in three ways:
This is the way to grow hydroponic fodder in containers. The advantage of container planting is that it can be planted all year round without being affected by weather and climate. Whether you live in a desert or an alpine area, a container for hydroponic forage can be used use. What's even more surprising is that our vegetable container also has such advantages, which ensures that you can eat fresh vegetables anywhere.
Method 2: Hydroponic fodder factory
As long as you have an empty space, you can build a hydroponic fodder plant. The fodder can be planted vertically, which saves space. The automated hydroponic equipment can save you time and effort.
Method 3: Planting hydroponic fodder indoors
If you have fewer animals such as cattle and sheep, and the scale is relatively small, you can grow them indoors. When you are not sure whether you can plant successfully, you can also conduct planting experiments indoors, so the cost will be relatively small.
For indoor planting, we can use the seedling machine, which provides light, temperature and other elements, and the fodder can grow quickly inside. In addition, you can grow sprouts in the seedling machine, and the success rate is also very high.
I hope this article can be useful for your hydroponic fodder planting. If there is a shortage of hydroponic fodder in your area, you can also try our planting methods.
