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...
Hydroponics means “water working.” Therefore, a true hydroponic culture is one that uses water only, with plant nutrients added in the correct concentrations and ratios for the plants grown. In most cases, hydroponic culture involves a substrate for the plant roots to grow in, and is consequently termed “soilless culture.” Hydroponics goes back as far as the famous hanging gardens of Babylon and the floating gardens of the Aztecs. From the early 1600s until the 1800s, “nutriculture” techniques were developed for the growing of plants in laboratories to study plant nutrition. Dr. William F. Gericke of the University of California coined the term “hydroponics” in the early 1930s, as he developed techniques to commer- cially produce crops without soil. His first practical application of hydroponics was during World War II in an effort to grow fresh vegetables on non-arable islands where troops were stationed. Installations were established on Ascension Island in the South Atlantic, Iwo Jima and Okinawa in the South Pacific, and later, on Wake Island and a 22-hectare (55-acre) project at Chofu, Japan after the war. The U.S. Army, with its own special hydroponics branch, grew over 8,000,000 pounds of fresh produce during 1952. Today, there are about 2500 acres of greenhouse hydroponic vegetables produced in Canada, and over 1500 acres in the U.S. Principal crops grown are tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants and lettuce.
