Excerpt from the article: Beware of your credibility blind spots, says Cara Hale Alter, author of The Credibility Code: How to Project Confidence and Competence When it Matters Most (Meritus, 2012).
The correct supply of water and nutrients is important in hydroponic growing systems in order to use water efﬁciently, avoid stress situations, and control production. The present study was conducted to evaluate two irrigation scheduling techniques for hydroponic tomato production in Navarra, northern Spain, related to the crop water requirements. The results show that although daily over-irrigation was applied (45.7% of drainage), 18% of the total yield (35 kg m−2 ) was affected by blossom-end rot problems, due to water stress suffered by the crop. Irrigation scheduling by time clock was not ﬂexible enough to satisfy the varying crop water requirements through the day and during the season. With constant irrigation intervals and volumes, water and fertilisers were wasted during the morning (excessive irrigation) whereas during the afternoon, the plants suffered water stress. Irrigation scheduling by radiation method at a level of 0.81 MJ m−2 , with some supplementary time clock irrigation applications during the hours of darkness (in order to keep the growing medium wet), appeared to be a good solution.

greenhouse vegetables Hydroponic Tomatoes Maximizing yields from hydroponic tomato crops has long been the main objective of commercial growers. However, there’s growing consumer pressure to produce high-quality, great-tasting fruit that stores and handles well in the retail sector. By Lynette Morgan T Top: Properly grown hydroponic tomatoes are often ﬁt to be framed; Bottom: This single-truss crop is being grown on greenhouse benches in NFT. (Photos courtesy of Lynette Morgan) Hydroponic Resource Are you looking to grow more greenhouse vegetables or growing hydroponically? GPN will bring you a few articles a year, but if you want in-depth information year-round, research such as this can be found in The Growing Edge magazine. It is a great resource for hydroponic growers. Visit www.growingedge.com or call (800) 888-6785 for subscription and other information. 78 GPN October 2003 omatoes, the biggest hydroponically produced crop on a worldwide scale, are complex in their physiology and response to crop management techniques since vegetative growth, ﬂowering and fruiting all need to be continually maintained simultaneously on the plant. Obtaining economic yields of highquality fruit while minimizing the use of pesticides and other agrichemicals has put commercial tomato growers under increasing pressure, and many are now looking to modiﬁed hydroponic systems where higher proﬁts are possible. Many of these new tomato-growing techniques involve the production of “spray-free” crops and using organically based systems. Today’s selection includes a wide range of new, fresh tomato products, such as lowacid fruit; on-the-truss, cluster or vine-ripened fruit; and many new....
