Hydroponic systems, our focus is on sensitization of livestock farmers on how to increase farm yields and help even smallholder farmers to maximize on returns. Our aim is specially putting a focus on the Sorghum and wheat seed to produce fodder.Hydroponic farming is the art of growing plants without the use of soil .This technology is as old as history and was used in the famous hanging gardens of Babylon for commercial purposes to feed livestock. It started in 1960s in Australia and has spread to the rest of the world ever since.Hydroponics technology can be adopted using locally available materials to control temperature thereby making hydroponic farming a reality. A farmer can construct a 3m by 4m house unit which can support to feed two dairy cows, 10 (pigs, goats, sheep) and over 400 birds. The amount of fodder from this unit is equivalent to two acres of Napier grass.Hydroponic fodder for livestock is the main meal, but not supplement. Actually it completely eliminates dairy meal, maize germ, pollard, poultry fed and even in sow and weaner.Fodder BenefitsPoultry thrive on fresh vegetation.
