Making plants grow vertically may have been an idea in the past, but now the advent of vertical agriculture has enabled this idea to be implemented.Currently, the main cultivation techniques used in vertical agriculture are soilless cultivation, such as hydroponics, aerosol cultivation, and so on. Hydroponics refers to fixing plants in media such as asbestos and perlite to provide nutrients for the roots, or directly immersing the roots in the nutrient solution.Although many crops can be hydroponics planted, it is necessary to select the right hydroponics planting equipment to achieve good results when planting.
The hydroponic tower system is a very typical vertical vegetable tower.This planting method is to let the plants grow on the towers, and let the plants grow by themselves through automated operation.It is mainly used to grow small tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce and other leafy vegetables.The biggest advantage of hydroponic vegetable towers is that they occupy very little space and are very good for indoor planting. It is beautiful and does not occupy space, which can perfectly solve the fundamental problem of family planting.
In addition, the vegetables grown from the hydroponic vegetable tower are very green and healthy, very in line with the pursuit of modern people.The advantages of hydroponic agriculture have gradually been recognized, especially for leafy vegetables. Due to its short production cycle, high yield, and simple technology, hydroponic technology is most widely used in leafy vegetable production.
The aeroponics tower system is also a very good vertical planting equipment.Water is the minimum and most basic condition for all plants to survive. Different plants have different requirements for water. Aeroponics vertical farming is based on the needs of various plants for water adaptation characteristics and water requirements at different growth stages. It can be completely controlled and automatically adjusted by humans, so it can meet the needs of various plants with different characteristics. Therefore, aerosol cultivation can be suitable for almost all plant cultivation.
The common advantage of using hydroponic or aerosol grown vegetables is that in addition to being free of pesticide residues, their quality and yield have been effectively improved. For example, the content of vitamin C can greatly exceed that of soil grown vegetables, or even exceed three times. Various nutrient elements are also more complete than those cultivated in traditional soil, which is related to the scientific formulation of nutrient solution to create the optimal nutrient metabolism conditions for its growth, as well as the fuller absorption of roots in the aquatic environment.
Vertical agriculture, with its infinite development space and growth advantages, has become a representative of the advanced productivity of modern agriculture, and is the best alternative agriculture to change the current traditional pattern of resource scarcity, environmental pollution, and excessive human investment. It is also one of the major trends in agricultural development in the future.
