Author(s): Sajiv G, Anburani A and Venkatakrishnan D
Abstract: Hydroponics is a new technology for growing plants in nutrient solutions with or without the use of an artificial medium (example. sand, gravel, vermiculate, rock wool, coco peat) to provide mechanical support. Hence, an experiment was carried out on “Study on the growth of hydroponics cultivated egg. Plant (Solanum melongena L.) using different media and varied regimes of nitrogen and potassium” in the Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University, Tamilnadu, India during January - April 2018. Coco peat and sand were used as media with different concentration of N and K nutrients based on modified Hoagland solution. Among the different media and nutrients, plants grown under coco peat media with 125% of N and K modified Hoagland solution (298ppm N and 330 ppm K) recorded significantly highest plant height, number of primary branches, number of secondary branches, stem girth, number of leaves and dry matter production.
