Green fodders produced by growing seeds without soil but in water or nutrients rich solutions are known as hydroponics green fodder. Compared to conventional methods of growing fodder, hydroponic fodder requires lesser space and produces highly nutritious fodder than soil farming.

They are supplied with moisture usually via spray irrigation. Holes in the trays facilitate drainage of excess water. The seeds will usually sprout within 8 to 12 hours after soaking and in 7 days have produced a 8 to 10 inch high grass mat. Hydroponic fodder is much more easily digestible, full of nutrients and enzymes that the energy spent on this digestion process would be far less with the resultant extra energy being diverted to milk production and growth. Need of Hydroponic Technology in Green Fodder Production Hydroponics technology is required to overcome the following constraints for the production of quality green fodder. In case of small land holdings. & non-availability of fertile lands for green fodder cultivation. When the irrigation/water facility, fencing, land preparations resources /labour are limited. In mining and coastal belt areas where it has limited area for growing green fodder dairy industry. In areas, where destruction of fodder is caused by stray cattle’s and other wild animals. In regions, where dairy farmers spend higher cost for labour for green fodder cultivation. In regions, where demand of green fodder […]
