Hydroponics Fodder

Hydroponics fodder is nutritious, palatable and digestible and can be grown in low cost techniques with locally home grown grains.

      Against impeding climate change and less availability land hydroponics fodder production is an effective alternative technology for sustainable livestock production.

VR International specialized in fabrication and installation of Hi-tech as well as low cost Hydroponics Fodder System. 

Depending up on client need we build up fodder system from 50 kg onwards. 

Advantage of Hydroponics Fodder System
  • Consumes 98% less water than conventional method.

  • Takes only 8 days duration to develop from seed to fodder while it took 45 days to grow.

  • Enhanced nutritive value – as the fodder contains the seed along with the fodder, it has higher crude protein content than conventional green fodder.

  • Fodder can be produced round the year irrespective of the failure of monsoon, land availability, natural calamities, labor shortage. Promotes sustainable agriculture and livestock production. As the fodder contains more crude protein that conventional fodder it reduces the feed cost spent on the concentrate feed to half.

  • Hydroponic fodder along with seed and root (sprout mat) are highly edible and are rich in protein (10 – 17%).Ideal nutrients enriched fodder for livestock.

  • Yellow Maize, Cowpea, Horse gram, Sun hemp, Ragi, Bajra, Foxtail millet and Jowar has been grown successfully and received good response from the livestock as a fodder.

  • Fodder is grown completely natural without the use of any pesticides.

  • The hydroponics production can easily be measured to cater to the needs of farmers owning just two head of cattle.

  • Loss is minimal because the whole portion of plant comprising of roots, leaves, grain and stem is fed to the animals.

  • The biomass conversion ratio is as high as 6-7 times that of the CGF grown for 65 to 80 days
