Indoor Ag Sci Café presents ‘Managing Water Quality and Biofilm for Indoor Production’ by Dr. Paul Fisher (University of Florida).
This comprehensive summary is an essential information for indoor farming! February Indoor Ag Sci Café focused on water quality and biofilm for indoor production.
Dr. Fisher discussed characteristics of different source water and their potential issues (alkalinity, chlorine, salinity, and pathogens) as well as mitigation measures. Key steps of biofilm management was introduced and efficacy of different commercial products was discussed.
Indoor Ag Science Café is an outreach program of our project OptimIA, funded by USDA SCRI grant program (http://www.scri-optimia.org). The café forums are designed to serve as precompetitive communication platform among scientists and indoor farming professionals.
