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.

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....

W hile many people agree that a roaring fire on a cold day helps make a house a home, choosing from today’s myriad of hearth options can be confusing, especially when trying to balance aesthetics with efficiency. From style to fuel type and heating needs to installation restrictions, there is a fireplace, stove, insert or log set that is right for you and your house. Traditional fireplaces provide the ambiance of a roaring fire, but send most of their heat and all of the combustion by-products up the chimney. Today’s consumers not only demand ambiance, but also want to capture the heat while reducing the environmental impact. Manufacturers have responded with attractive fireplaces, stoves and other options that warm the living areas of your home while saving you money on your heating bill. Enjoying a fire can be as simple as pushing a button or as engaging as cutting your own wood, building and tending a fire. Your local hearth retailer can help determine the best product based on climate, lifestyle and your home’s layout. Did You Know? Zone heating (putting heat where you need it, when you need it) allows you to turn down the thermostat on your central heating system, and save money on your energy bill.
