In China, soilless cultivation began in the 1970s, mainly to cultivate soilless seedlings of rice and vegetable crops. At this time, the cultivation method was mainly flat cultivation. With the development of economy and the improvement of people’s living standards, the cultivation form of soilless culture has begun to be used for soilless cultivation of vegetables, flowers, fruits and Chinese medicinal materials.
In recent years, the vertical cultivation mode has been vigorously advocated in the plant planting industry. Among them, vertical cultivation is an important development direction of soilless cultivation, and in vertical cultivation, vertical growing racks are an important tool to realize vertical cultivation. Today’s article is mainly about We introduce what is a vertical growth rack, and the classification of vertical growth racks.
1. What is a vertical growing rack?
The form of the growth frame can be divided into trough cultivation, bag cultivation and pot cultivation according to the difference of soilless cultivation troughs. According to the space arrangement of soilless cultivation troughs, it can be further divided into plane cultivation and vertical cultivation.
Soilless cultivation Vertical cultivation is also known as three-dimensional cultivation. The growth of plants in vertical growth racks develops in multiple directions, which can make full use of various cultivation conditions such as time, space and light, exert the production potential of limited ground , and effectively improve land and light, heat and water. The utilization rate of natural resources such as , fertilizer, gas, etc., to make the best use of the land and resources, to establish a good agricultural ecological economic complex, to solve the contradictions such as more people and less land, and competition between food crops and other economic crops, etc. Improving the output rate per unit of land is a form of cultivation and planting that achieves high quality, high yield, high efficiency, energy saving and environmental protection. Compared with flat cultivation, the utilization rate of land by vertical cultivation can be as high as 4 to 8 times, and the management effi ciency of vertical cultivation in soilless cultivation is also much higher than that in flat cultivation, and it is very easy to realize automatic cultivation.
