Comparison chart between Fodder Grass on Land and in Green Fodder Hydroponic System.
Fodder Grass on Land
DSK Milkotronics Hydroponic Fodder System
Fodder grass on land takes 60 days to grow.
Production capacity for 1000 sq.ft and one year cycle will be approx. 7200 kg.
Fodder grass in hydroponic machine has 7 days to growing cycle.
Multiple grow rack, production capacity for 50 sq.ft area and one year cycle can produce 36,500 kgs of fodder grass.
Fodder grass grown on land requires 50,00,000 liters of water annually.
Fodder grass in hydroponic machine with 50 sq.ft system requires only 36,500 liters of water annually.
Cost for harvesting and transportation from agricultural farm to cow shed is higher and time consuming.
Harvesting and transportation much easier and cost is very less. We can set up machine in cow shed area.
It requires tillage – agricultural preparation of land by mechanical agitation of various types such as digging, stirring and overturning. So more labor require.
There will be no tillage in machine so no labor for that job.
Due to more use of land require for fodder grass, there will be less option for other growing cash crop.
In Hydroponic Machine System, negligible land requires so enough scope for other cash crop.
Fodder grass on land require the base as soil which has many impurities.
Hydroponic Machine System doesn’t have a soil base. It grows on trays.
Fodder grass on land grow with the help of pesticides and also has many foreign matters so it become almost inorganic.
Hydroponic Machine System is grown without any pesticides and without land thus its 100% Organic.
