Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture (the growing of plants in a soilless medium, or an aquatic based environment) and is a method of growing.
Project website: Microirrigation Introduction: What is it? Microirrigation is the slow, frequent application of water.
Greenhouse Crop Management Sheila Dunning Commercial Horticulture.
The Hydrologic Cycle. Summary Water is a limited resource. Growers (farmers) have a responsibility to conserve water. Water can be conserved by capturing.
No Sprinklers No Drip lines No plowing, tilling or media exchange Plants grow in common sand Passive sub--irrigation 100% efficient, sub-fertilization.
Mums- the word. There are over 160 species of chrysanthemums. One of the most popular is Chrysanthemum morifolium, or florist chrysanthemum.
Plant Production. Conditions for plant growth All plants need water, nutrients & oxygen to grow Normally plants can spread their roots to take these in.
