Transcript of Smart Cropping

What made us start the proyect? After we read in our Sociales
class an article about gene-
tically modified crops, we
could draw a conclusion:
Colombia was not going to be
able to compete against the
GMC if we didn't have the technology to use the same method. But, at the same time, we knew these crops were harmful for human beings. Finally, we were left with one question: how to make Colombian crops more productive? CONCLUSION In conclusion, based on research on the factors that negatively affect crops and the development of this project, it was established that the hypothesis was correct. In other words, this scale model of technological culture has shown us that regulating factors mainly water and heat, can be enhance the growth and production of fruit. As this invention protects the crop raised in this case was evaluated with beans, the environment in which it is not directly affect the crop, yet retain the natural conditions necessary to allow growth.

- 2 wooden sticks of 27cm
- 2 wooden sticks of 35.5 cm
- 1 wooden sticks of 26cm
- Hose of 80 cm
- 40cmx40cm wooden board
- Extension 110 volts
- Photocell 600 watts
- Energy converter 10 volts
- Water pump
- Recycled plastic container PROCEDURE To build this project, you need four logs of 20cm, 27cm 2 lumber, 2 timbers 35.5, 1 timber of 26cm, and a wooden board 40cmx40cm used to support the structure. In addition, it took an extension of 110 volt photocell that turns the 600 watts and the latter comprises the power converter 10 volts. This activates the pump drive that drives the water irrigation system (in which a plastic container is recycled, where it is stored in a glass of water which is sent through a hose and allows the irrigation 80cm) and the two lighting bulbs of 12 Volt. We evaluated the project by planting 16 bean seeds in sand fertilized in a polystyrene tray of 20cmx25cm HYPOTHESIS: If a photocell, with the ability of activate by light changes helping trigger an irrigation and light system, then the good growth and development of the plants in Colombia would be optimized ABSTRACT In a wooden base would be placed a photocell which will activate with the light changes, and this activates an irrigation system. This system will be controlled; hence, it has the required amount of water. Moreover activates a light, which is representing the sun, for plants to acquire heat and nutrients, and can make the process of photosynthesis, without the heat of the sun affecting this process through evaporation of water.
- 2 lighting bulbs of 12 volts
- 16 bean seeds
- Fertilized sand
- 20cmx25cm polystyrene tray RESULTS With the construction of the project we got an irrigation system which regulated the amount of irrigated water and the light received by the plants. We also got a systematic cultivation to represent natural conditions that created a crop nutrition and growth of plants. It prevented a flood that is caused by climate change and drought by strong heat waves. meaning, we managed to balance environmental conditions affecting crops today. What are the ideal conditions for a proper harvesting in Colombia? Future Research In order to make our project better, we must test different type of plants. This way we can evaluate the growing of, not only beans but, other plants. Furthermore, we plan on making "gates" so the crop is protected from its environment. This way, we can attack other problems other than flooding,
