Hydroponics Update: New crops are planted in Syria
Our hydroponics project in Syria has been widely successful in growing a variety of crops effectively and at a low cost. While our team has been experimental with hydroponics and tested different methods, we are always honing in on how to maximize crop production.
Recently, Usamah our Technical Advisor in Syria planted seedlings for this seasons crops. Instead of using plastic beads as before, he used crushed glass (which is widely accessible). The glass is a better alternative, because it has better insulation than the plastic and can warm the seedlings up during the day and the glass can hold heat during the night.
Once the crops begin to sprout, they will be transferred into the hydroponics tubing. Watch this space to see how this project progresses.
