Luts Pavlo – Candidate of Technical Sciences, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Agricultural Engineering and Technical Service of Vinnytsia National Agrarian University (St. Soniachna, 3, Vinnytsia, Ukraine, 21008, e-mail: luts@vsau.vin.ua). 



The article raises the question of the use of hydroponics for growing agricultural crops in modern conditions - this is the growth of plants under the condition of limiting the area and lighting of the premises for cultivation. This approach makes it possible to implement hydroponic systems on an industrial scale in conditions of urban population growth and urbanization. Solving the issue simplifies the chain "agricultural enterprise - consumer" and provides an opportunity to reduce the cost of final products.

The main modern cultivation methods and schemes were analyzed, the shortcomings of such systems were identified, and a solution was proposed that would lead to the minimization of costs. This will preserve all the advantages of growing plants in a soilless environment using nutrient solutions.

From a large list of options for hydroponic plants and different ways of arranging plants and their root systems in the growing process, the one proposed for use of the equipment based on the technique of using a nutrient layer flowing in the middle of the plant with a cylindrical arrangement of plants in the complex prevails in terms of the use of space and consumption of energy resources. The cultivation process when using such equipment by the position of the plants on the periphery effectively combines almost all the advantages of the technology.

The cylindrical rotary hydroponic system proposed for use makes it possible to obtain a larger number of planting places for cultivation on a smaller area of coverage than with the vertical method of cultivation using a multi-tiered method. At the same time, energy costs for the use of lighting and additional lighting are reduced.

Due to the automation of the growing process in hydroponic systems, the required amount of human labor is reduced. The use of a modern complex microcontroller control system, consisting of programmable modules controlling individual systems, allows almost complete automation of the growing process and completely excludes the influence of the human factor on the course of events.

Therefore, automation in hydroponic systems is an important step towards increasing the efficiency and sustainability of plant cultivation in modern agriculture.


Keywords: cultivation intensification, hydroponics, energy saving, cylindrical shape, automation, industrial installation, growbox, greenhouse.

History of journal:

In June 1994 the 2nd International Scientific and Technical Conference "Application of vibrations for technological purposes" was organized on the basis of Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute. Leading experts in this field, noting the significant contribution to the school of Vibration Engineering under the leadership of P. S. Bernyk, proposed to create a professional all-Ukrainian scientific and technical journal "Vibration in engineering and technology..The journal was foundedat Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute and P.S. Bernyk was elected to be the chief editor .
For all these years (since 1994) theJournal "vibration in engineering and technology" published  94 issues wherestudy of vibration effects, the creation of progressive energy saving technologies and equipment for their implementation were highlighted.
Currently Kaletnik H.M  PhD , professor, academician NAAS is the chief editor of the "Vibrations in engineering  and Technology"
The journal "Vibration in Engineering and technology", which has no analogues on the territory of Ukraine, is well known abroad.
