To Design the Low Cost Pilot Scale Self Watering Hydroponic System and to Study the Effect of Untreated Kitchen Waste Water on Plant Growth

Vinod Ganachari | Rohan Gurav

Abstract: Availability of water and land are the two significant components in agricultural fields. As per the present scenario, ?????fertile land and sufficient water availability are only feasible in some regions due to the high land cost. To overcome the abovementioned problem, an attempt has been made to design a low-cost self-watering hydroponic system for crop and medicinal plant growth. This research correlates everyday traditional farming practices on a pilot scale with a comparison of a pilot scale of a self-watering hydroponic system. In this study, we have compared the use of well water and untreated kitchen wastewater for the growth of plants and crops. The study also reflects and gives the overall picture of plant growth and the effect of well water and untreated kitchen wastewater on it. The study focuses growth parameters on selected medicinal plants like Insulin, Tulsi, and crops like spinach and lettuce. The result and discussion were made on growth parameters like Height, Number of leaves, Weight of the crop and plant, and visual observations. As per the result and discussion made in the study, there is no adverse effect on plant growth and crop growth when we use untreated kitchen wastewater as a substitute for fresh water.
