Experimental hydroponic system for growing sweet potato plants



Experimental hydroponic system for growing sweet potato plants



HortScience 23(5): 828



A hydroponic system specifically designed for sweet potato production was developed. A 91.2 litre storage reservoir supplied 2 storage root growth channels via an electric pump and 0.5 inch diam. pipes. The rate of flow was controlled by gate valves and the frequency of application was controlled by a digital time clock. The channels were designed to accommodate a wide range of variables from conventional pots to liquid flow.
