Adam Henson travels to the USA to learn about what intensive dairy and pig farming means — for the animals and for the environment. (BBC Countryfile. October 24, 2010 s23e08) Video Rating: / 5 Welcome to the World of Growing Food without Soil Using Hi End Technology Advantages of Soilless Farming 1. Soilless agriculture does not require the use of toxic chemicals. Unlike soil-based agriculture, where farmers have to use fertilizers to increase crop yield and spray pesticides to keep weeds and pests away, crops are somewhat protected from pests and weeds. 2. Soilless agriculture is ideal in urban areas where space is too limited for soil-based gardens. 3. Nutrient and growing media loss is significantly reduced with soilless cultivation because the nutrient requirements for crops are determined in advance. 4. Soilless cultivation is believed to cause less pollution. 5. Compared to soil cultivation, the yields from soilless cultivation are significantly higher as a result of intensive practices and the possibilities of continuous, year-round production. Disadvantages of Soilless Farming 1. Crops cultivated using this approach is more prone to pathogen attacks as a result of high moisture levels. 2. Aeroponics is particularly susceptible to power outages. Reliable backup power is a must in Aeroponics. Vision To produce 1% of the world’s food requirement, through our suregrow systems. Mission To pioneer state of the art soilless farming systems which grow quality food at relatively low costs. Background The Indian farmer is not confident about his profession.

    Grow fruits and vegetables for human consumption rather than keeping animals confined in factories. All the diseases that are rampant today high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cancer are all caused by animal products. Factory farming is the number one contributer for pollution. If you care about the Earth stop eating animal products.

    This is why I'm choosing not to breed. Most people should be doing this. People should stop eating meat, eggs and milk or at least consume less after it if too stubborn to give up meat.

    It would always be better for everyone and everything to have just a little fresh air and sunshine, maybe some grass and trees and shrubs. Utopia for us all. We are all just animals anyway and we need nature in a meadow still and always. We are shorting ourselves not just the animals. We don't need to. Is there no such thing as nature intensive farming?

    People in rural areas complaining about the stink are such crybabies. They are looking for any excuse to get rid of a form of agriculture they don't understand and are therefore scared of. I work on a large dairy, I live within 20 minutes of half a dozen CAFOs (less than 5 minutes to three of them), and have been the one in the fields as they spray slurry. It does stink on spray day, that's it, and the smell doesn't carry for miles. If these farms smelled as bad as neighbors claim, you wouldn't see families living right next to their barns.

    This is the way every hydro'er should go. You know what, I have been thinking something must be wrong when I saw the most prevailing ZipGrow system, til I see your system, I instantly tell me myself, that's it. Congratulations guys, you point out what is the correct way in the dark. By the way, where can I buy the pipe hole covers, or how to make them, especially how you hang them vertically?
