Q. Hydroponic Tomatoes

I am interested in erecting three greenhouses to grow hydroponic tomatoes with the size of 15, 000 square feet.  I have no previous experience in such farming, but I read almost for one month about hydroponic farming. What I want to know is whether I can buy the hydroponic system with fertilizer and environment controllers. I also want your advice for the best method with less complication, as well as the light in lumens and the the period required daily. In addition, what are the nutrients required for the cycles of the growth?

Hi anonymous, You say you have no previous exp with hydroponics, do you have any exp growing tomatoes in soil? If not, I would start there, with a smaller amount in the first greenhouse while you're setting the other two up. There are way too many factors involved. If you have exp there are great hydroponics stores all over that have complete package deals that include everything including nutrients and their scheduled application. I have gone from soil to hydroponics and back again. I guess it's because dirt is more forgiving any mistakes. You didn't mention where you are from so light requirements may be adequate already.

Q. yellowing of indeterminate greenhouse tomatoes

Yellowing of indeterminate greenhouse tomatoes immediately after being lowered, irrigated hydroponically in cocopit media. We are using an indeterminate tomato variety FA593 and achieving very good results. At the Glen valley horticulture incubator in Gaborone, Botswana, we planted it in November 2011 in tunnels, greenhouses and net houses and the result was:

A very good crop stand. Tolerant to most pests and disease. Very good fruits, in size, number per truss and shape, but just before ripening, 80% of the fruit will started cracking. Water source we are using is treated sewage water. We use the ultra-filtration treatment plant, which does reverse osmosis in treatment, and we also dose nitric acid and sulphuric acid to lower the pH, which usually stands at 14, before treatment. Type of irrigation system: Hydroponics Growing media cocopit/coir in sausage bags. We are also experiencing yellowing of abellus variety immediately after lowering the plants, and during this stage it aborts flowers and will improve after 3 weeks or so.

Please advise. Thank you,
Bettie Francis Technology coach Glenvalley incubator

Q. plant transfer

I have a tomato plant in a container that is lagging behind others. I also have some in Hydroponic setup. At what point can I not transfer this container plant to hydroponic setup?

I do not know what type of Hydroponic growing system that you have, so it is difficult to answer.
If the plant roots fit into your system, you can likely transplant with not issue.
If you all ready have a poorly growing plant, you may want to leave in the container and not introduce to other plants.

It's not a description of an issue I have heard of or found any information on.
You can send us an image if you like.
You can also take a sample to your County Extension Office for examination.

There are many hydroponic tomato fertilizers on the market. What I can do is give you the information to one of my former employers. He runs a Hydroponic shop in middle Tennessee. He will carry and ship just about anything to just about anywhere. Here is his information: Jason Chambers
