If you search on Google for Peas Shoots or Sprouted Peas, you will find there are millions of articles and highlights of the topics. You can see many articles highlighting the amazing nutrition to be found in these tasty additions to your diet. AND you can grow them in your home in just a few days! There is a big difference to growing both, so this kit gives you the supplies and tools (wide mouth jar not included) to grow both in your home. Pea sprouts are sprouted in a jar with just water and will be ready to eat in 2-4 days depending on how much sprout you like emerging (see photo of sprouts at 3 days). Pea shoots on the other hand are pea microgreens that are grown in our coir growing media for 10-21 days depending on your taste. We harvest the shoots as the first tendrils start to emerge and each plant will give you 2-3 shoots before exhausting the initial nutrients. The kit includes: 3 pre measured packs of our sprouting pea mix (organic & non GMO) sprouting screen to use with your own wide mouth mason jar (at least a pint) 3 pre measured packs of our pea shoot seeds (organic & non GMO) 1 Wonder Soil custom blend (worm castings & kelp) wafer of compressing coir that is enough for 3 crops of pea shoots 1 growing tray and humidity cover for germinating and growing (made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles) 1 small spray bottle to mist seeds during germination
When it comes to changing from conventional to organic hydroponic production methods, there are three main areas that growers find most challenging. Tyler Baras, special projects manager at Hort Americas in Bedford, Texas, said growers are increasingly inquiring about organic hydroponic production. Baras is running hydroponic production trials comparing organic and conventional production methods in…
by Melissa Pernell Space farming research can help us improve controlled environment agriculture (CEA) systems so we can grow our food in a more resource conservative manner. Controlled Environment Agriculture: Indoor growing environments that rely on pumps to circulate fertilizer in a water solution (i.e. hydroponics) and use energy efficient technology such as LEDs to …
Industrial fertilizers help feed billions of people every year, but they remain beyond the reach of many of the world’s poorest farmers. Now, researchers have engineered microbes that, when added to soil, make fertilizer on demand, producing plants that grow 1.5 times larger than crops not exposed to the bugs or other synthetic fertilizers.
The advance, reported here this week at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, could help farmers in the poorest parts of the world increase their crop yields and combat chronic malnutrition. A key component of fertilizer is nitrogen, an element essential for building everything from DNA to proteins.
Nitrogen is all around us, comprising 80% of the air we breathe. But that nitrogen is inert, bound up in molecules that plants and people can’t access. Some microbes have evolved proteins called nitrogenases that can split apart nitrogen molecules in the air and weld that nitrogen to hydrogen to make ammonia and other compounds that plants can absorb to get their nitrogen.
The industrial process for making fertilizer, invented more than a century ago by a pair of German chemists—Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch—carries out that same molecular knitting.
But the Haber-Bosch process, as it’s now known, necessitates high pressures and temperatures to work. It also requires a source of molecular hydrogen (H2)—typically methane—which is the chief component of natural gas. Methane itself isn’t terribly expensive. But the need to build massive chemical plants to convert methane and nitrogen into ammonia, as well as the massive infrastructure needed to distribute it, prevents many poor countries from easy access to fertilizer.
