Hydroponics Book Excerpt:

With over 45,000 acres of greenhouse vegetation currently being grown hydroponically throughout the world, hydroponics has become one of the most rapidly expanding new areas of plant research. Although growing plants without soil has been practiced since ancient times, hydroponics-the growing of plants specifically in water or nutrient solutions-has shown itself to be the most cost-effective way of maximizing yield, eliminating plant disease, minimizing labor costs and getting the most out of limited land resources. It's both an economically and ecologically sound approach to field-crop production and soil management. Successfully practicing hydroponics, however, requires a working knowledge of the mechanics of plant growth and a firm grasp of the hydroponics process. Hydroponics: A Practical Guide for the Soilless Grower clearly explains the basics of plant growth and development, the different methods of preparing and using hydroponic nutrient solutions, and hydroponic options for various environmental conditions. It gives the reader instructions for simple experiments and a number of helpful charts, tables and illustrations. Completely up-to-date, the book also describes, in detail, all the latest techniques for hydroponic growing. It addresses new challenges in the field such as growing food for astronauts, practicing hydroponics in inhospitable environments and updating nutrient element supplies for the demands of the next century. It's an ideal guide for anyone interested in plants and how they grow-from casual hobbyists and students to commercial growers and professional plant researchers.

Unlocking the potential of protected agriculture in the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council Saving water and improving nutrition Book Excerpt:

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is a political and economic union of Arab states, namely Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the Unites Arab Emirates. The GCC was formed in 1981 to strengthen the members’ economic, social and political ties by harmonizing regulations in various fields including economy, finance, trade and customs. The region extends over a territory of 2 673 108 km2 and is home to about 50 million people. The common denominators of the GCC countries are limited natural fertile land, scarce water resources and harsh climate. Depending on the country, the agriculture sector may use as much as 75 percent of the national available water resources. This has enormous environmental costs and significantly affects the sustainability of overall development in the Arabian Peninsula.According to Al-Rashed and Sherif (2000), the lack of renewable water resources is one of the critical constraints to sustainable development in the GCC countries. Rainfall in the Arabian Peninsula is scarce and infrequent. Over-exploitation of fossil groundwater resources, mostly to meet irrigation demands and create greenery lands, has already affected the productivity of aquifers, both quantitatively and qualitatively, despite the fact that much of the freshwater demand in the GCC countries is already covered using desalinated water. Reducing water consumption and increasing water efficiency are essential to enhancing agriculture and moving towards increased self-sufficiency with the production of high-quality, safe and diversified foods in the GCC countries. Exploiting the full potential of protected agriculture should save significant amounts of water, which can be used not only for agriculture but for other needs as well.
