Controlled Environment Agriculture School will be March 19 to 21
FarmTek will be hosting its first ever Controlled Environment Agriculture School March 19 to 21. FarmTek's mission is to provide the highest quality products at affordable prices and excellent customer service. Now, they are taking their goal of serving you one step further by offering you the chance to learn about some of the latest trends in horticulture and agriculture, such as year-round hydroponic growing, fodder production and an introduction to aquaponics.
The purpose of these sessions is to educate growers of any background about the variety of controlled environment agriculture opportunities. The hydroponics portion of the event will discuss production factors, trouble-shooting, disease control, marketing your produce and more. FarmTek has a large variety of hydroponic systems at their campus, so you will be able to get a lot of hands-on experience. The fodder curriculum will cover using fodder in your operation, system components, sanitation, producing microgreens for high-end markets and more. The introduction to aquaponics will go over the basics of fish farming, the connection between hydroponic vegetable production and fish farming, how to construct aquaponics systems to produce at a variety of levels and more.
