The debate on "Organics" and "Hydroponics"

Hydroponic growers, on the other hand, must use refined minerals because mined minerals dissolve poorly in solutions. As a consequence, it is not currently practical to formulate a top-quality "organic" fertilizer, which will work well for hydroponic crop production, and meet U.S. standards.


HYDROPONIC FEEDING TIPS: During the flowering stage reduce the amount of light from 18 hours to 12 hours. • For best results, maintain a pH range of 5.8 to 6.3.

A look at ozone in hydroponics applications

Some advantages to hydroponic farming: · Plants mature more rapidly (up to 30 percent) - because root systems are smaller; · Higher density planting - minimizes use of land area; · Allows for production in areas where suitable soil does not exist; · Indifference to temperature/seasons; · More ...

Small-Scale Lettuce Production with Hydroponics or Aquaponics

For the second week, water should be replaced with either half-strength hydroponic nutrient solution or fish water. About 2 weeks after germination, the sheets of cubes were broken apart, and one cube was dropped into each net pot.
