An Automatic Sub-irrigation Sand Culture Apparatus
Abstract:The apparatus and its component parts are described in detail, with the aid of labelled photographs, and its operation is explained. Major components are listed and priced and the addresses of suppliers are given. It is claimed that substantial savings in manpower can be achieved by the use of an automatic system and that the risk of serious mistakes occurring, due to human error, is greatly reduced. Systems incorporating the same general principles have been used in numer us earlier studies but few have been described in sufficient detail to facilitate duplication. Some features of the apparatus described are thought to be original.
