Growing Purpule Yam in pots

Mon, 04/09/2018 - 06:43

@Sandip wrote:

Dear friends.

I stay in rowhouse and have sunlight in abundance. On better-half’s demand tried growing purple yam. Got some from local market tried some videos from net. Planted in 1 X 3 X 2 pots filled with routine sandmix and believe me it was amazing. absolutely easy. Harvested almost 5 kg from 5 pcs and 5 pots. Had planted garlic pods on borders and amazing combination.

Those who can must try. It may take almost 120 days but wait is worth…

Problems with growth of microgreens in an indoor growing system

Sun, 04/08/2018 - 12:11

@Aakash_Grover wrote:

Hi. We have an indoor farm in Delhi, India where we produce microgreens hydroponically. We grow these greens on burlap placed on top of leca balls in 10x20 flats. The irrigation system is flood and drain. We are using LED T5 lights (4 on each level which contains four trays of crops). The lux value is between 4000 and 5000. I have attached some pictures of the farm with this post.
We are facing some problems in the growth of the crops:

  1. Radish: The leaves are not opening up. They remain curled inwards. Also, we have observed yellowing of leaves very early in the crop cycle. Some leaves are also decaying completely.
  2. Red Amaranth: A lot of mould formation is occurring just after germination. and in later stages also.
    For germination, we stack one empty tray over the seeded tray and give it two days.
    We are using tap water whose EC is around 350. Also, we have added a little NPK fertilizer to bump up the EC to around 500. Also, we are sanitizing everything; from burlap to leca balls to the trays we use with H2O2 (50% concentration).
    For ventilation, We have created a frugal version of a fan and pad system. We have 2 exhaust fans which run on a timer. Also, we have installed two pedestal fans which to create some turbulence.
    If you have any idea as to how to fix any of these problems, your input will be highly appreciated.
