Key Differences Between Aeroponics & Hydroponics

If you're wondering what the differences are between Aeroponics vs. Hydroponics, you're probably not alone. These often misunderstood agricultural practices are set up to be the future of farming, but most people don't know much about them.

Great Western Industrial Park Brings the Future of Agriculture to Northern Colorado

Phase one of the New York-based, indoor farming pioneer's project will house a 150,000 square foot state-of-the-art climate-controlled, high-tech hydroponic greenhouse facility.

How Hydroponic Farming Can Reduce the Cost of Lettuce

Leafy greens are some of the best plants to grow hydroponically, and lettuce is an excellent plant to start out growing hydroponically. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you grow your own lettuce to reduce the growing retail prices.

Polarity & Nutrient Uptake

Water is a perfect example of a polar molecule. In fact, the polarity of water is what makes it such a good solvent. When salt is added to water it dissolves because the water molecules arrange themselves around the different ions and isolate them.

Flushing Hydroponic Systems: Nutrient Imbalance, Waste, and An Alternative Solution

We recommend that hydroponic growers flush their systems every month to every few months, depending on the type of system they're running. But why? We're also fans of recirculating system because it conserves water and nutrients.

Eden Green Technology Breaks Ground on New Texas Greenhouse, Continues With $12 Million Strategic Expansion

Eden Green Technology's greenhouse modules are more sustainable and scalable than other hydroponic vertical farms, low-tech greenhouse formats, and traditional soil-based farming methods.

Great Northern Hydroponics Projects CA$150,000 in Annual Savings After Fluence LED Implementation

Leading tomato grower in Canada sees significant cost savings with LED technology and heavier fruit weights that drive increased yields

How Hydroponics May Be Essential for Urban Agriculture

Moving farming from vast expanses of land to urban settings sounds like no easy feat. How can enough plants grow to feed large populations in a limited space? Instead of taking down skyscrapers, urban farmers use their vertical nature to their advantage.

7 Common Questions About Autodosing in Hydroponics

With practice, many hydroponic growers can fine-tune their growing environment to remove bottlenecks, minimize maintenance, and increase the quality of their produce. One way they do this is through automated nutrient dosing.

Little Leaf Farms, the best-selling greenhouse grown lettuce in the US, doubles greenhouse growing capacity and broadly expands across East Coast

The company also recently bought 180 acres of land in McAdoo, Pennsylvania and has plans to build another state-of-the-art greenhouse there to further distribution down the East Coast of the sustainably-grown lettuce

How Deep Flow Technique (DFT) Hydroponic Systems Work

The Deep Flow Technique (DFT) is similar to two other hydroponic systems, but it ultimately works in it's own way. In this article, you'll learn how DFT hydroponic systems grow crops.

You May Be Overlooking One Key Factor In Hydroponics: Water Quality

Since water is the main carrier of nutrients, it's essential that the water have as few impurities as possible. Poor water quality may cause plants to suffer from stunted growth, nutrient deficiencies, bacterial contamination and more!

How Science Helps an Indoor Farm

While there are many different techniques with indoor farming, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics, all of them have one thing in common - the lack of soil. Instead of using the concept of growing in soil, crops are instead grown in peat moss or coconut husks.

Nutrients 101: Growing Strong Hydroponic Plants

There are a lot of factors involved in giving plants the ideal combination of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other necessary nutrients. The good news is that getting it right in the Greenery is actually pretty easy!

The 13 MP autofocus camera uEye XC is especially easy to operate and delivers high-resolution images and videos in the blink of an eye. Unlike typical webcams, it has been specifically designed for use in industrial applications and delivers sharp image data even in changing light conditions. Setting up and operating only requires a cable connection. The webcam-like camera is characterised by its particularly elegant and lightweight magnesium housing: with dimensions of only 32 x 61 x 19 mm, it is compact, sturdy despite its light weight and absolutely suitable for industrial use - benefiting, for example, kiosk systems, applications in industrial production or agriculture. With the uEye XC Starter Set, IDS offers a full-package deal for $500. (launch promotion, valid until 30 November 2022) that allows customers to evaluate and use the full range of functions of the new camera. The set includes not only the camera, tripod adapter and cable, but also a macro lens. Thanks to this lens, the camera is also suitable for demanding applications at close range. It easily shortens the minimum possible object distance and opens up additional application possibilities.
