SUMMER IS HERE!!! What are your plans for urban farming?
According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO), Urban agriculture is practiced by 800 million people worldwide, over one-tenth of the global population. Summer, especially when it is a hot one, maybe a difficult season for hydroponics growers.
Here are some great crop options to grow during summers.
Basil, coriander, spinach, lettuce, parsley, spring onion, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, strawberries, blueberries are very popular preferences and can produce an impressive crop. Being flavorful they also have a wide variety of health uses.
But, there are some challenges that you might encounter in urban farming in summers like issues with temperature and humidity control.
Humidity and temperature are some of the most important metrics in hydroponic culture. Humidity can be the most difficult environmental factor to control in greenhouses. Even the most sophisticated environmental control equipment cannot perfectly control the humidity level in greenhouses. Humidity levels fluctuate with changes in air temperature and plants are constantly transpiring, which adds water vapor to the air.
We received a stack of questions from clients asking what to do during the hot days when one is growing hydroponically? So we finally decided to address these questions with our KAMALA FARMS app.
KAMALA FARMS app mainly focuses on assisting the clients in every aspect of the crop production process and during summers it is very essential that you maintain the right temperature and humidity level for a healthy crop.
