    Excess nitrogen puts butterflies at risk

    Nitrogen from agriculture, vehicle emissions and industry is endangering butterflies in Switzerland. The element is deposited in the soil via the air and has an impact on vegetation -- to the detriment of the butterflies, as researchers have discovered. source https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/06/210617133804.htm

    Freight Farms and CEO Vanzura Set To Reinvent Container Farming

    The global pressures exacerbated by COVID-19 and the rippling toll it takes on the international community has made one thing clear: preparedness is everything. The Coronavirus has exposed vulnerabilities in the global health network that no one could have imagined. Food production and distribution must now reset their agendas to prepare for catastrophe. Freight Farms, a 2011 Agtech company which…

    Effect of Calcium and Magnesium on Flowering and Fruiting of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill)

    Effect of Calcium and Magnesium on Flowering and Fruiting of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill)

    Abstract: The influence of CaCl2 and Mg on growth, yield, and quality of tomato was investigated in Uasin Gishu (in Chepkoilel) and Bungoma counties, between June-October 2016, and March-July 2017. The experiment was laid out with a randomized complete block design. CaCl2+Mg foliar (1.5% and 2.0%) solutions was applied as foliar sprays in combination with soil application of CaO and NPK fertilizer on three tomato varieties- Cal-J, Riogrande and Nyati. Data were recorded for days to 50% flowering, the highest number flowers per cluster, fruits per plant, yield, fruit weight, fruit firmness, and total soluble solid content of the fruit. The application of CaCl2+Mg at 2% in T12 (30Kg P/ha+4tons/ha+2% calcium and magnesium) significantly increased the days to 50%flowering, number of flowers, and the number of fruits per plant. Foliar application of CaCl2 (2.0%) + CaO (4t/ha) resulted in the minimum number of days to 50% flowering (18.67 in Chepkoilel and 22 in Bungoma), the highest number of flower clusters (Bungoma 51.67 and 52.33 in Chepkoilel), the highest number of flowers (Bungoma 239.67 and Chepkoilel 201.33), highest number of fruits per plant (Bungoma 99.67 and Chepkoilel 96.33), and highest yield (Bungoma 10.55t/ha and Chepkoilel 9.63t/ha).
    Key words: Calcium chloride, foliar application, tomato
    Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) is one of the most widely grown, and used vegetable crops. In Bungoma and Chepkoilel, maize crop is the most popular produced. However, recent years has seen these farmers have to face several challenges, including drastic price reduction, outbreak of pests and diseases (e.g. Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease), exhaustion of cultivated soils (Kuete, 2008; Okalebo et al., 2002; Gillermou and Kamga, 2004). Therefore, it becomes urgent to search for alternative income-generating products. In this context, seasonal cultures such as vegetables and fruits are gaining more and more interest. This has seen a rise in tomato growing farmers in a paradigm shift and diversifying their farming production systems

    Picked up today these “float trays” from someone who was getting rid of them. I’m not familiar with “tobacco floaters”, “float trays”, “hydroponic trays” etc... but there is always “let’s learn something new” 🤣 ... she started to burn them in order to get rid of them but she said she stopped because it created horrible black smoke around the neighborhood 👀😱😳 well I’ll be using them to start our flowers, I think that will be a better choice 🤪

    Hydroponics Market Sales, Demand, Business Risk, Key Players Analysis Market Report 2027

    The agriculture sector is one of the oldest and the most established sector for any country’s economy. The idea of taking crops out of soil and growing in a completely soil-less medium is still surprising for the mass. Hydroponics is the fastest growing soil-less farming practice at a global level, wherein a tailored nutrient solution is used for the crop to attain its full growth with a superior quality in a sustainable manner. The technique introduced several advantages in terms of increased yield, higher returns on investment, and protected environment among others, attracting a larger share of producers as well as investors.

    Hydroponics Market

    Market Forecast

    The global hydroponics crop value is anticipated to grow to USD 27.29 Billion by 2022 at an estimated CAGR of 6.39% from 2015 to 2022. Improved yields, higher return on investment, and protected environment among others, attracting a larger share of producers as well as investors has been driving the hydroponics market.

    By downstream analysis-

    The global population count is set to reach the 9 billion mark by 2050, and the food resources are depleting at a proportionate rate. With the progressive integration of technology with agricultural practices there have been significant improvements in conventional farming practices, yield quantities, and associated returns on investments. However, in the past decade there has been constant degradation of natural resources such as land and water. This along with several other monetary reasons has led to an alarming need of switching to unconventional farming techniques, such as hydroponics, which does not depend on soil, fertile land, and water resources for cultivation.

    Competitive analysis-

    The major key players in hydroponics market are

    Village     Farms International

    Thanet     Farms

    Pegasus     Agritech

    James     Foskett Farms

    Terra     Tech



    American     Hydroponics

    General     Hydroponics

    Regional Analysis

    Europe is an established market for hydroponics, whereas North America, primarily the U.S. and APAC, primarily India hold immense potential to grow significantly during the forecast years. The European region lead the global hydroponics market in 2014 with an estimated crop value of USD 9.8 billion and will continue with this dominance growing over USD 13.38 Billion by 2020 at an estimated CAGR of 5.28% through 2015 to 2020. The Americas will be growing at the highest CAGR of 9.1% from 2015 to 2020. Developing countries of Middle East and Africa will continue contributing smaller shares to the global hydroponic crop value through the forecast period.
