|Project Summary||Project Information|
The Durgin Family Farm is located at 1175 Martin Road, West Henrietta and this is the second year of its operation. The farm is relatively close to population centers and the Durgin family intends to take advantage of that through selling U-Pick berries. Also, it is less than 7 miles from RIT.
The Farm has three primary long-term goals for the hydroponic system:
(1) grow the highest quality strawberry
(2) make each plant as productive as is reasonable
(3) optimize convenience to the customer.
Underlying these goals will be to make the system cost effective using existing components and have it monitored by a microelectronic control system. Deliverables include a modular design consisting of:
(1) a stand-alone unit consisting of pipes and support
(2) a modular design of how the units should be tied together with a reservoir, etc.
(3) a microelectronic control system.
There will be a “proof of concept” unit built at the Farm. This modular design could then be replicated by the Durgin Family Farm to whatever size was needed (e.g. ¼ acre, ½ acre etc.)
