Control of the ionic composition of the rhizosphere in the transition to soil-based hydroponic systems



Control of the ionic composition of the rhizosphere in the transition to soil-based hydroponic systems



Journal of Plant Nutrition 10(9/16): 1205-1211



Using a plastic mulch for protection, a soil-based gradient-hydroponic system to control the ionic composition of the rhizosphere was developed. The basic concept was that soluble nutrients placed on the soil surface in conjunction with a constant water table would move by gradient to the root as required by the crop. As an alternative, trickle irrigation was used to supply nutrients as well as water in a trickle-hydroponic system.
