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.

Grown In Your Own Backyard The Hydroponics Tomato Greenhouse at Brigham Young University-Idaho is located on the south side of the Benson building. The primary purpose for the on-site greenhouse is not only educational, but it also supplies tomatoes to University’s Food Services. The greenhouse tomatoes are available to the University from January to July, every year. Food Services use an average of 400 to 500 pounds of tomatoes per week. Surprisingly, the greenhouse here on campus can provide at least two-thirds of those tomatoes. The greenhouse was constructed with glass so that natural sunlight can easily penetrate the walls and reach the plants. An advanced ventilation system allows proper airflow to the plants, as a generator then creates carbon dioxide, a gas that tomato plants readily need to survive. “The greenhouse provides hands on learning. You get to work with fertilizers and see how increasing and decreasing certain fertilizers affect the plants,” said Chad Blackburn, Hydroponics Greenhouse Manager. Since tomato plants can grow 24 hours a day, special lamps turn on at certain parts of the day (at night for instance) to supply adequate lighting for the plants. Care such as this, ensures continuous growth. Plants that normally grow in a warm climate are unable to sustain themselves if transported and grown in a colder environment. With the help of a solid, sophisticated greenhouse provides a convenient method of horticultural production. Having a controlled and contained setting, allows plant life to thrive without interruption, a fascinating...

Our modifications retain the factory appearance. Call our Customer Service Department for more details.
NOTES ON ALL GENERAL MOTORS HARNESS SYSTEMS We have done a great deal of research on General Motors wiring harnesses in order to provide you with the most authentic wiring systems possible. While doing this research, we had the opportunity to study original harness blueprints and specifications for some General Motors products. All of the data we examined specified that the wire was to have a natural cotton base color (a light tan) braided over the rubber insulation, with tracer colors woven in for wire identification. The tracer colors would consist of a single thread parallel tracer or two single thread crossing tracers, as specified on the harness blueprints. After the cotton braid was applied to the wire it was to be given a protective coating consisting of a heat, oil and water resistant varnish. This protective coating would color with age and cause the original wire to appear dark yellow, orange, or brown. All the wire we use for General Motors vehicles conforms to the original color codes as specified by the manufacturer. One note on our General Motors harness systems: At this time we cannot supply the original type GM twist connectors, the rear body plug, or the turn signal switch plug. We do provide substitute connectors...
