    Hydroponics

    `A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down organic matter into basic nutrients that plants feed on. Water dissolves these nutrients which allows uptake by the roots. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

    Irrigation solutions for Lettuce crops

    Lettuces are season vegetables coming from India and cultivated for more than 2000 years ago. The bigger producers are China and the United States. Depending on the variety the leaves change of shape and colour. Two of the most popular varieties are the Roman and Iceberg. The Roman lettuce is big and erect, while the Iceberg one is round and smaller.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the horticulture industry

    With a number of units specially designed and developed for hydroponics and agriculture, atg UV’s treatment systems eliminate all types of water borne micro-organisms. atg UV Technology’s leading Ultraviolet treatment systems are used in a number of key areas to vastly reduce the risk of product rejection, crop failure and the spread of disease. With a number of “emerging” pathogens now displaying increased resistance to traditional methods of disinfection, Ultraviolet treatment is now the preferred and accepted method of disinfection over traditional chemical methods.

  • Measuring Ion Concentrations in Hydroponics Samples

    Required Apparatus:

    • Aptisens Digital or Mobile Multiple Ion Kit

    Required chemicals:

    • Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution
    • Aptisens multiple ion HORTICULTURE calibration solutions
    • Deionised water

    Sample Preparation:
    Typically, it is not a requirement to filter a hydroponics sample.

    Calibration:
    Before use the multiple ion probe must be conditioned in Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution. Ensure the correct calibration solutions for a three-point calibration are set up on the Mobile meter or MeterLink. Follow the instructions for calibration and proceed to take a sample reading when the calibration data is ‘very good’ or ‘good’ for all ions.

    Sample Reading:
    Place the probe in the aqueous extract and ‘Take a Sample’ reading. The concentrations for each ion will be displayed in ppm or mmol / L.

    Probe Care:
    After taking your reading be sure to remove the sensors from the solution as quickly as possible, rinse with deionised water and replace the cap of the probe.
