Greenhouse

DeMilia Research LLC is taking the initiative to rejuvenate research on plant pest data collection and modeling. The DeMilia Research Farm is the first such research facility dedicated solely to the comprehensive testing of plant pest models and it is expected to make a significant contribution to such research. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions without soil. Our farmhouse was originally built as an experimental passive solar home by a NC State engineering professor and the main solar room will be used for a hydroponics laboratory. Our mischievous dog, Lucky, has made it his room so we are restricted in what we can do in it, so we'll have to wait till we get a small greenhouse before we can do more. We currently have some seedlings growing in a few flats of coconut coir media and hanging from the indoor balcony in Topsy Turvy upside down planters. Hydroponics grown in our small greenhouse will serve for growing pathogen in vivo culturing, pest identification technique development, and population monitoring. We also will be conducting hydroponic experiments comparing organic chemicals vs. synthetic pesticides, pesticide joint action effects, dosage optimization, and other studies.

Coming soon. Some photos of our makeshift hydroponics inside the house. We need to get a greenhouse before we can conduct experiments. We appreciate any donations towards our farm infrastructure.
