Additional index words. Lycopersicon esculentum, homeowner application, temperature, passive hydroponics. Abstract. Greenhouse tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) were grown in a glass greenhouse at the Seminole Com munity College Horticultural Unit in Sanford, FL for two grow ing seasons (1996-97,1997-98) to determine the feasibility of a passive non-circulating, low-tech water culture system. Water and nutrients were added to troughs lined with 6-mil poly and covered by 4' x 8' insulation panels. Tomatoes in 4" azalea pots were placed in holes on the panels so that the bottom of the pots barely touched the water. An air space was maintained below the panel. Marketable yields during 13 weeks of harvest averaged 13.6 lbs. per plant the 1st season and 9.4 lbs. per plant the 2nd season. Marketable yields and plant vigor de clined when daytime greenhouse temperatures were consis tently over 90 F in June of 1997 and May of 1998. No significant yield differences were found between tomato cvs. Trust and Match. Suspending a screen in the water for root attachment did not significantly affect yields. The simple system design and maintenance makes it suitable for homeowner, hobbyist, or school demonstration applications provided that ideal tem peratures for greenhouse tomatoes can be maintained. Introduction New passive hydroponic systems were developed at the Asian Vegetable Research Center in Taiwan (Anon., xxxx) and studied further by B.A. Kratky and colleagues at the Uni versity of Hawaii (Kratky et al., 1988; Kratky, 1993; Kratky, 1996). These systems are low tech and relatively inexpensive compared to traditional hydroponics. Preliminary work in Florida (Fedunak and Tyson, 1997) found that short season lettuce crops performed well in a passive hydroponic system.

pH Management of Hydroponics Solutions A question often asked is what is the best pH for a particular crop nutrient solution. The answers given in many texts, and often by advisers to growers, are frequently based on misunderstood information. Many refer to the availability of nutrients to plants at different pHʼs based on research by Troug (1946) [Proc. Soil Sci. Soc. Am., 11:305-308] even using graphic illustrations of his ﬁndings in one form or another, generally showing a bar graph with wide portions in the pH area where the element is most widely available to the plant. I have seen similar representations said to show the availability of trace elements in a hydroponics solution. This graphic representation of availability of trace, and sometimes the major elements, only applies to plants being grown in mineral (clay based) soils. It is not relevant to hydroponics solutions.As plants use nutrients their roots release bicarbonate that raises the pH of nutrient solutions. By the early 1990ʼs I had observed that the published and advised pH at which crops were grown did not correspond to my observations. At the time phosphoric acid was being used to routinely acidify hydroponics solutions and was causing imbalances in nutrient solutions and blockages due to precipitates. It made sense to replace the phosphoric acid entirely with nitric acid which could, by monitoring pH, be added at a rate related to plant use replacing Nitrogen (N) used in growth periods and so maintain a better balanced solution free of unwanted precipitates.

Ingredients used in Paint Manufacturing It was in older days that more of pigments were used as major ingredients for paints. However, with several research outcomes newer ingredients have been added that increased the paint quality, texture and durability to a considerable level.

The guar gum has gained wide usage especially in the crude extraction industry. Further research has shown that it can be modified to increase its effectiveness oil well fracturing.
The research reported in this document was made possible through support extended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Research Laboratory of Electronics, jointly by the Army Signal Corps, the Navy Department (Office of Naval Research), and the Army Air Forces (Air Materiel Command), under the Signal Corps Contract No. W-36-039 sc-32037. An analysis of impulse noise in an ideal (amplitude insensitive) FM receiver has indicated that the effect of impulse noise should be negligible. From the analysis additional transient functions of a limiter are inferred. These functions are shown to be approximated by two germanium crystals paralleled with reversed polarities. Experimental results are shown in the form of oscillograms. It is a generally accepted fact today that frequency modulation (FM) is a realizable means of faithfully transmitting intelligence, and one which offers many advantages and improvements over amplitude modulation (AM). The development of FM, extending back to approximately the beginning of this century, has not been an easy task. One of the more important problems has been the development of a successful FM receiver. This hurdle has been responsible, more than any other single factor, for the failure of many early attempts to use FM, and, in fact, today still presents a reduced, but definite, limitation of the FM system. The difficulty in realizing a satisfactory FM receiver can in general be narrowed down to the development of its two basic component parts - the limiter and the TI detector, since, with the exception of these two elements, the FM receiver may be considered similar to the conventional AM receiver.
