With the development of agricultural technology, many people no longer use traditional soil to plant vegetables, melons and fruits on a large scale. Hydroponics can make plants grow faster and management more convenient, so which is better than aerosol culture?
-Hydroponic planting system
We can use the relevant hydroponic system for hydroponic planting, and NFT system, zipper system and deep water culture planting can be used for large-scale vegetable planting, which are commonly used by many people when hydroponic planting is adopted. The flat NFT system is suitable for large-scale planting. The NFT system is simple to install and inexpensive, which can reduce the consumption of water and nutrient solution and save labor, space and other costs. The three-dimensional NFT system is suitable for home planting, such as indoor vegetable planting.
The zipper system occupies a small area. Some leafy greens, flowers and Chinese herbal medicine can be planted, which is simple, beautiful and generous.
There are two ways of deep water culture planting, one is canvas or pool plus floating board, the other is EBB seedbed plus floating board, which is suitable for novice and experienced growers.
Aeroponic system can effectively improve the root growth environment of plants, making nutrient absorption more direct, increasing the utilization rate of water and fertilizer, and three-dimensional cultivation can also enhance the absorption and utilization of light by plants.
In the same lifetime, the growth rate of plants under aerosol cultivation is faster than that of soil planting and hydroponics, and the biomass is also higher than that of other cultivation methods. For example, the yield increase of micro potato under aeroponic system is generally more than 30%, and some of them reach 100%; The yield of tomato under fog culture was 15.3% higher than that under soil culture. Vegetables keep their roots moist, grow faster and have a shorter growth cycle.
In addition, aeroponic system can also make full use of space. Because it is easier to realize three-dimensional vertical cultivation, it greatly increases the coverage area of cultivated plants, and improves the utilization rate of greenhouse several times.
Which one do you prefer, hydroponics system or aeroponic system? For our hydroponic farm, it is important to choose a suitable planting system, which also depends on the varieties we plant, the area we plant and our personal preferences.
