Hugh Jackman, Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway star in this critically-acclaimed adaptation of the epic musical phenomenon. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe), after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Anne Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. This enthralling story is a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit and ‘an unforgettable experience’ (Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com).
What is Hydroponics?
In natural conditions, soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir but the soil itself is not essential to plant growth. When the mineral nutrients in the soil are dissolved in water, plant roots are able to absorb them. When the required mineral nutrients are introduced into a plant’s water supply artificially, soil is no longer required for the plant to thrive. Almost any terrestrial plant can grow like this. This method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions (fungicide & nutrient solution commonly known as Beejamrit), in water, without soil is known as hydroponics.
Some of the reasons why hydroponics is being adapted around the world for food production are the following:
1) No soil is needed
2) The water stays in the system and can be reused; thus, lower water costs.
3) Stable and high Organic production.
4) Immune to weather
5) Pests and diseases are easier to get rid of than in soil because of the container’s mobility
6) Energy and labour saving
7) It is easier to harvest
8) No pesticide damage
NEED OF GREEN FODDER FOR COWS
Green fodder is the natural diet of cattle. Green fodder is the most viable method to not only enhance milk production, but to also bring about a qualitative change in the milk produced by enhancing the content of unsaturated fat, Omega 3 fatty acids , vitamins, minerals and carotenoids.
Modern researches have confirmed that grass fed cow’s milk is very rich in EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids). Omega 3 is the most important constituent of grass fed cow’s milk, particularly for brain and eyes. Some clinical studies indicate that a 1:1 ingested ratio of Omega 6- to Omega 3- (especially linoleic vs alpha-linolenic) fatty acids is important to maintaining cardiovascular health.
When a cow is raised on pastures, her milk has an ideal one to one ratio of these two EFAs discussed above. Studies suggest that if your diet contains roughly equal amounts of these two fats, you will have a lower risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, allergies, obesity, diabetes, dementia and various other mental disorders.
Some of the benefits of hydroponic fodder production being
1) Land preservation
2) Water conservation
3) Faster growth and maturity
4) Contamination free
5) Minimal use of Fungicide and Pesticide
6) Less labor and maintenance costs
7) Control over growing environment
8) Highly palatable & Nutritious fodder
9) Time saving
10) Weed free
