Abstract:

The Study entitled with “Development and Performance evaluation of Pipe Framed Hydroponic Structure for Fodder crop” was conducted for period of 120 days at Department of Farm structure, Hydroponic structure was constructed using U-PVC Pipes with external dimensions such as 3m height x 2m width x 3m length and it consist of six internal rack structure with size of 0.45 m height x 0.45 m width x 0.8 m length. The internal structure was equipped with 54 plastic hydroponic trays with size of 0.45 m length × 0.30 m width × 0.15 m height, which was equipped with semi-automated sprayer irrigation. Hydroponic structure was covered with 50% UV stabilized shade net. In order to control the internal temperature of hydroponic structure, proper spraying of water was carried out at regular interval per day automatically to get a range of 25 - 300C temperature and 65-70% relative humidity. It was observed that in hydroponic structure the biometric characters such as plant height 28.55 cm, weight of tray (5.50 Kg per tray) and total yield (120Kg).
