Hydroponic Garden Control with IUT |
Placing sensors on my current hydroponics setup would allow connection to my home automation system. This system would then assume responsibility for activating the pumps and providing confirmation that the pumps were turned on and off. It could also monitor the solution level in the main sump and replenish it from a larger, remote container. Solution conductivity could also be monitored to track the chemistry of the solution and possibly adjust is using a dosing pump. Also, solution and ambient temperature could be monitored and tracked year-by-year to track correlation of temperature to growth, possibly indicating the need to provide temperature control during the early spring.

There's More Farmland in the World Than Was Previously Thought
Global cropland totals 1.87 billion hectares (4.62 billion acres), 15 percent to 20 percent higher than earlier estimates, according to a map released Tuesday by the U.S. Geological Survey.India has the largest cropland of any country at 179.8 million hectares, compared with 167.8 million in the U.S. and 165.2 million in China. Russia ranks fourth, while South Asia and Europe are labeled “agricultural capitals of the world,” as cropland accounts for more than 80 percent of some countries in those regions. In comparison, only about a fifth of land in U.S. and China is dedicated to growing food.
