Gravity fed commercial Sweet Melon farm - Malaysia
Located near Kuala Lumpur where rainfall is so frequent that the water requirement for this farm is never a problem. Making use of the site elevation, this farm was able to feed all the plants (20,000 growing units) by gravity
.
Rainwater is collected from the roofs of the greenhouses to the central storage tank below. Water is pumped into a 5,000L black tank (in circles) in front of each greenhouse (1,000 plants). Nutrients added manually in to the tank, the plants are then fed by gravity.
Safe organic sprays - Neem extracts used for the control of pests & diseases. This variety can be harvested 55 days from planting 1 week old seedlings. The farm produces top quality fruits - no blemishes, nice colour and consistently sweet with Brix averaging 15.
