Title
(EN) SOILLESS GROWTH MEDIA FOR INDOOR AGRICULTURE
(FR) MILIEU DE CROISSANCE SANS TERRE POUR AGRICULTURE EN INTÉRIEUR
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of the disclosure relate to soilless growth media with light reflecting and light absorbing surfaces for indoor farming and methods of using the media to germinate seeds and develop plants. In some embodiments, the soilless growth media can be a fabric made from two webs that can be joined together with a tie-in yarn linking the light reflecting plant supporting surface web yarn and the light absorbing web base yarn together in the fabric. The soilless growth media in embodiments of the disclosure can be used to reduce evaporation from nutrient delivery systems and improve controlled environmental agriculture operating efficiency.
(FR)
Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent des milieux de croissance sans terre à l'aide de surfaces de réflexion de lumière et d'absorption de lumière destinés à l'agriculture en intérieur et des procédés d'utilisation du milieu pour faire germer des graines et faire croître des plantes. Selon certains modes de réalisation, le milieu de croissance sans terre peut être un tissu constitué de deux bandes qui peuvent être jointes ensemble par un fil de liaison reliant ensemble, dans le tissu, le fil de bande de surface de support de plante réfléchissant la lumière et le fil de base de bande absorbant la lumière. Les milieux de croissance sans terre selon des modes de réalisation de l'invention peuvent être utilisés pour réduire l'évaporation de systèmes de distribution de nutriments et améliorer l'efficacité de fonctionnement de l'agriculture en environnement contrôlé.
