Hydro means water and Ponic working. That means it is a water working technology. Simply we can define it as science of growing plants in nutrients rich solution instead of soil. Hence we can grow fodder, vegetables, fruits, micro greens by this method alone
It takes approximately 6-7 days to grow Hydroponic Fodder
The production per kg for maize would be 6-7 kg, and for wheat and barley, 7-8 kg
Yes, for goats and sheep, but cows and buffaloes need fibre in their diets, therefore you can rely 80% on hydroponics and feed dry/concentrated fodder for dry matter.
Simply, No. In hydroponics, the focus is on managing and establishing the perfect environment for plant growth. Which is not possible in green net
No because nutrients required to grow fodder are added in the water. Certain amount of PH and TDS is also maintained before using the water in Hydroponics
That is dependent upon the cow’s weight and milk production. For instance, a cow weighing 250 kg and producing 6-8 litres of milk per day has to be fed about 25 kilogramme of hydroponic fodder
Nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, iron, and other micronutrients are needed to grow hydroponic fodder.
TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids. Which means total amount of dissolved solids like molecules and other compounds in water
TDS should be between 600 and 700 ppm before adding nutrients, and between 1000 and 1500 ppm after adding nutrients.
