Azolla is a highly productive plant, which exists as both male and female spores. It is found floating on the surface of water by means of numerous small, closely overlapping scale-like leaves, with their roots hanging in the water. It is also found colonizing areas of freshwater and it has a spontaneous growth cycle, most times doubling its biomass every two to three days, based on certain conditions. Each harvest of azolla can yield as much as 8 to 10 tons of fresh matter.
Azolla is very rich in proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin B12 and beta Carotene. If you are into livestock production, you should buy azolla as it makes for an ideal cheaper feed alternative for pigs, ducks, chickens, cattle, fish, sheep, goats and rabbits.
Biochar is a high performance, carbon-rich organic fertilizer, produced by burning organic biomass a temperature of 300-1000°c.This is done in an environment with either low oxygen or one completely devoid of it (pyrolysis). It could also be produced in an environment with partial absence of oxygen (gasification). Biochar is used as a better alternative to chemical fertilizers for growing all kinds of crops. It is applied by mixing with the choice growth substrate in a suitable proportion, e.g 40%-60% or 30%-70%, with the biochar being the lower component.

Cocopeat, which is made from coconut husk, is an excellent growing medium for hydroponics, soil mixes and container plant growing. The cocopeat is an absolute organic product, which is sterile and has natural rooting hormones, as well as anti-fungal properties. All of these properties make it the ideal growing medium. It also has the ability to store nutrients and release it to plants for extended periods. Its high oxygenation properties ensures plants develop healthy roots.
The use of cocopeat also guarantees the slightly acidic environment plants need for growth since it has a neutral to slightly acidic pH of 5.0-6.8.
Growing crops starts with nurturing them as seedlings. This tray provides you with just the right anchor to cultivate your seedlings till they are ready to be transplanted into their own pots. It allows you to achieve more with lesser space unlike the traditional planting boxes and is built in a way that ensures the easy removal of sprouts. For healthy and disease free crops, you should grow in seedling trays.
TDS & EC meter
The TDS&EC device is a small hand-held high-density glass electrode used to indicate the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in a solution, usually water, as well as its conductivity and temperature. Since dissolved ionized solids, such as salts and minerals, increase the conductivity of a solution, it is important to know the hardness or otherwise of the water before it can be used for purposes such as hydroponics, drinking, swimming pools, laboratories, aquariums, RO / DI water, and so on.
BIC Gro is a solution comprising Calcium nitrate, Phosphorous, Potassium, Magnesium, and Sulfur, which plants need for optimum growth, in a maximally soluble form. It also provides Nitrogen in Ammonium form, Potassium, Calcium, as well as the other trace elements. A combination of these stimulate structural and vegetative growth of plants. It comes in two different solutions, A and B and each is a part of the whole.
