The conductivity (measured in ppm, EC, TDS, CF) is the total of soluble salts contained in a liquid solution or nutrient solution for example in hydroponics or hydroponics .
Pure water contains no salts , therefore it has a measurement of zero conductivity . Adding soluble components in water , electricity is able to move through the solution giving it a rating conductivity .
Using hydroponics as an example, different cultures grow well at different nutritional levels of resistance ( electrical conductivity = EC ). The control of this force nutrient is important to provide the best conditions for your crop. Without an appropriate measure of your crop this can lead to burning roots. Burns caused by a level too high for ' fertilizer or fertilizer. The roots not die na receive the vital elements needed for their development and at different stages of cultivation (such as growth, flowering) in hydroponics or hydroponics .
Different cultures grow well at different levels of the nutrient strength that is to say with a CE different. It is important to control the nutritional strength to enable the root zone of the plant to absorb a maximum power , while minimizing stress .
For each crop plant and especially in hydroponics , there is an interval in which the nutrient resistance is optimal, providing sufficient nutrients for growth, but not as strong as the concentration of salts in the plant that is generally too high. Of electronic testers are available to measure the conductivity of the nutrient solution .
