My Hydroponic Turnkey Project

hydroponics

#181

Hydroponics is a very specialized way of growing, requiring very precise monitoring and  fertigation which is generally not possibe for amateurs and small time growers. Further, it is not easy to adapt the existing structures to different crop types. I have been into supply of inputs for hi-tech agriculture for over 27 years and would not recommend hydroponics on small scale, specially to first time growers. 

I also agree with the fact that  hydroponics can also be a hazard in the hands of the inexperienced as it  is based entirely on chemical inputs.

An easier way out is growing in open top bags.  More experienced can opt or soil less cultivation ( cocopeat/other ediums) in open top bags.

Hello Mr. Goutham

Where to get the plastic materials for Hydroponics? What will be the estimated cost now for the White tubes you have used. if you are running water mixed with turitient continuously, what sort of motor you are using? I was told the motor will breakdown or spoiled frequently.

Thanks

Hello everyone!

I came across this thread a little too late, when all the action seems already over. However, I am really looking to seek some guidance in starting my own turnkey hydroponic project on my 900 sqft rooftop.

I am based in New Delhi, so I understand the temperatures might be a little different here than in the south. I am looking to begin with growing a lot of leafy greens and a few tomato plants. If all goes well, can even look into expanding portfolio to other plants.

@vertical: You are truly an inspiration. If you still check this thread often, would love to get your response and connect with you to learn more. Thanks in advance!

Cheers!

Dear Vertical,
Very nice to see the excellent setup that you have done on the terrace.
how are you handling the nutrients part.
Even am interested in making a hoop house of 12 x 32 and try with color capsicum and tomatoes to start with.
I want to start with lettuce, but need to understand how do you germinate them? Can you please through some light on that.
How about NFT tubes? can i know the source as i want to buy for my hoop house.
Am from Mumbai and as far as space goes, it is the same or worse than Bangalore.

i have taken an acre of land nearby and would like to start there.

Thanks for your help i advance.
All the best and please do keep posting your developments.

Thanks again,
Jagannath K
