    There's an incredible place near Cumming, GA that does the same… The deliver greens to a great portion of the surrounding communities… I'll see if I can't find the name of the place again, I forget…

        This is exactly what we need more of, community based agriculture/farming. We need THIS generation and the one coming up (children to Gen X) to take an interest in farming/growing their own food or creating a demand within their communities for good, wholesome, local grown foods. Any Georgia farmers out there, PLEASE take a look at the Farmer Veteran Coalition and the new program that the Dept. of Veteran's Affairs and USDA have come together to create. As a veteran with PTSD who is Georgia born and raised and with an extreme interest in farming/ag I'd like to see more opportunities available with more farms/farmers participating in the program trying to help put veterans to work again as veteran farmers and veteran ranchers.

    The disadvantage of hydroponics is you must buy "plant food" or nutrition and supplements that are pricey.

    Thank you for the movie.
    I also have the thorough step-by-step training video instructions on the way to make your very own selfmade Aquaponic system. Its really easy that even your grandma can do it!

    We are starting a hydroponic farm to grow strawberry and lettuce. (two different greenhouses) Anyway you can share about your computer system for control of nutrients, temperature, etc? Appreciate your help on this.

    In a 30 x 128 size green house how many lettuce can you grow at a given time?

  • colbyalexis47 4 years ago

    Yes, it is from cropking. it's the standalone, 30 x 128 model.

    Hi. Is there a possibility to visit the farm? how can I contact them?

  • colbyalexis47 4 years ago

    We sent a sample of our water to a lab at clemson university and they told us how much of each type of nutrients and fertilizer we need to mix up to maximize our production.

    @Nkjohri yes they are still around, i just finished building a greenhouse purchased through them.

  • colbyalexis47 4 years ago

    @nkjohri I talked to them last week and just got on their site, so yes they are still there. They may have been having some webpage issues.

  • Nakul Johri 4 years ago

    very good technology of farming in green house and automatic system of temprature controlling for growing plants

    what would be the cost for producing 1000 kg of green fodder using this technique ? i am curious to know about hydropronic green godder

  • Craig Irwin 4 years ago

    Thanks Riley. I have used vinegar to play with the PH but never as a decontaminate. I would think it might be cost prohibitive, wouldn't it?

  • Riley Chew 4 years ago

    Looks great! use vinegar to wash the seed instead!

    what happened to the fodder system. You never made a video feeding your cows. Was this economically feasible or not?

  • yxcvmk 4 years ago

    Thank you for the Video!
    What did you use for the trays?

  • Craig Irwin 4 years ago

    Thank you I'll look at that website.

    @ Fidele pleese keep me in mind as you build, I would love to follow progress. Where is your project going to be built?

  • fidele kento 4 years ago

    Very nice!!! we are planning to develop this!

  • Craig Irwin 4 years ago

    @OrganicWheatGreens Clorox is approved for use in organic production.

  • OrganicWheatGreens 4 years ago

    Very nice! question though…washing seed with Clorox makes it non-organic correct?

  • MsTokies 4 years ago

    anyway to use something like vingar or something else to clean the seed?

  • Craig Irwin 4 years ago

    @ littlestucky1 A 48 tray system which produces a 10 : 1 ratio of seed to feed on a 6 day basis will produce 62.5 # per tray in 8 trays per day. This converts to 500# of feed per day. If you feed 3% body weight on an average of say 800# animals then you could feed 20 animals daily. Remember that you still need to feed a like amount of ruffage.

  • littlestucky1 4 years ago

    How many cattle do 48 trays feed per day?

    using the ozone it means the sprouts going to get a lot of oxygen bcz ozone is O3 that means you won,t need to aerate the water any more when you have the ozone filter and the sprouts will be very happy and healthy getting a lot of oxygen .but not you if you smell a lot of ozone you might have a headache

  • abdalrahim awad 4 years ago

    the water mixer is a small part you connected after the venturi it is very benefit for the sprouts you can get it from the same place you buy the venturi and they going to show you also similar parts you need to use like check valves. about the magnets they are 2 comes with special metal parts to connect around the water line or hose .they sill them on EBAY 75 D

  • abdalrahim awad 4 years ago

    try to buy them on EBAY or AMAZON or there too many companies on line like SPA they will show you a lot of options .I bought my ozone generator air filter from PLANTLIGHTING HYDROPONIC.
