Elbs unit 1 b491 lesson 12 ict and plant care

  1. 1. Plant Care and ICT LOs 1. describe how ICT can be used to keep records (D) 2. explain how ICT can be used for environmental monitoring (C)
  2. 2. This is not a stool <ul><li>Two minutes thinking time. </li></ul><ul><li>Come out and describe the stool as something else other than a stool. </li></ul><ul><li>On no account must it be a stool. </li></ul><ul><li>Prizes for the most creative descriptions. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Quick quiz <ul><li>1. In fertilisers, what is the difference </li></ul><ul><li>between organic and inorganic? </li></ul><ul><li>What three things do seeds need to germinate? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the two methods of pollination? </li></ul><ul><li>Give an advantage for each one. </li></ul><ul><li>What factors can be controlled in a glasshouse? </li></ul><ul><li>List some methods of providing </li></ul><ul><li>(i) water </li></ul><ul><li>(ii) nutrients (fertiliser) </li></ul><ul><li>to a crop in the field. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Quick quiz <ul><li>1. Referring to fertilizers, what is the difference between organic and inorganic? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Quick quiz <ul><li>1. Referring to fertilizers, what is the difference between organic and inorganic? </li></ul><ul><li>Organic = FYM, composts, natural materials </li></ul><ul><li>Inorganic = chemical ferilizers </li></ul>
  6. 6. Quick quiz <ul><li>What three things do seeds need to germinate? </li></ul>
  7. 7. Quick quiz <ul><li>What three things do seeds need to germinate? </li></ul><ul><li>water, oxygen, warmth </li></ul>
  8. 8. Quick quiz <ul><li>3. What are the two methods of pollination? </li></ul><ul><li>Give an advantage for each one. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Quick quiz <ul><li>3. What are the two methods of pollination? </li></ul><ul><li>Give an advantage for each one. </li></ul><ul><li>self = no other flowers needed, no insects needed, not dependent on weather </li></ul><ul><li>cross = get hybrid vigour, better offspring than parents </li></ul>
  10. 10. Quick quiz <ul><li>4. What factors can be controlled in a glasshouse? </li></ul>
  11. 11. Quick quiz <ul><li>What factors can be controlled in a glasshouse? </li></ul><ul><li>light, humidity, temperature, oxygen/carbon dioxide, nutrition </li></ul>
  12. 12. Quick quiz <ul><li>List some methods of providing </li></ul><ul><li>(i) water (ii) nutrients (fertiliser) </li></ul><ul><li>to a crop in the field. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Quick quiz <ul><li>List some methods of providing </li></ul><ul><li>(i) water (ii) nutrients (fertiliser) </li></ul><ul><li>to a crop in the field. </li></ul><ul><li>(i) pipes, sprayers, flooding </li></ul><ul><li>(ii) fertilizer spinner/spreader, muck </li></ul><ul><li>spreader, animals </li></ul>
  14. 14. Uses of ICT to the grower <ul><li>1. Record keeping. </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring the growing environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Computer models. </li></ul><ul><li>Technical information </li></ul>
  15. 15. Record keeping <ul><li>With all production systems, records are essential for </li></ul><ul><li>good management. When a crop is planted, what the </li></ul><ul><li>inputs have been, when it will be ready for harvest and </li></ul><ul><li>how it has been cultivated can all contribute to essential </li></ul><ul><li>record keeping. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Monitoring the growing environment <ul><li>Data-loggers can be linked to a PC to record plant </li></ul><ul><li>environmental factors. These might be: </li></ul><ul><li>Light </li></ul><ul><li>Water </li></ul><ul><li>Nutrients </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature of propagators </li></ul>
  17. 17. Light <ul><li>Light sensitive data- </li></ul><ul><li>loggers record changes in </li></ul><ul><li>light intensity onto a PC. </li></ul><ul><li>This information can then </li></ul><ul><li>be used to turn lighting on </li></ul><ul><li>and off in a glasshouse or </li></ul><ul><li>Propagator, thus maximising </li></ul><ul><li>the necessary light for the </li></ul><ul><li>growing crop. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Water and nutrients <ul><li>Data logging sensors in the </li></ul><ul><li>soil detect moisture levels </li></ul><ul><li>and record these at a PC </li></ul><ul><li>interface. </li></ul><ul><li>This data is then used to </li></ul><ul><li>provide information on </li></ul><ul><li>irrigation, or it can be used </li></ul><ul><li>to turn on automatic </li></ul><ul><li>irrigation systems that </li></ul><ul><li>directly access the growing </li></ul><ul><li>crop. The same could be </li></ul><ul><li>done with nutrient levels. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Temperature and humidity <ul><li>A data-logging hygrometer measures soil moisture and </li></ul><ul><li>humidity. </li></ul><ul><li>This information can be used </li></ul><ul><li>to either execute changes </li></ul><ul><li>in humidity and temperature, </li></ul><ul><li>or inform the grower. </li></ul><ul><li>Carbon dioxide levels can </li></ul><ul><li>also be monitored by data- </li></ul><ul><li>loggers. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Computer models <ul><li>Information on the growing </li></ul><ul><li>environment is put into </li></ul><ul><li>a computer and then </li></ul><ul><li>a programme used to model </li></ul><ul><li>the outcome for a particular </li></ul><ul><li>crop. </li></ul><ul><li>Inputs can be tested </li></ul><ul><li>before being committed </li></ul><ul><li>in the field, saving costly </li></ul><ul><li>mistakes. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Technical information <ul><li>The internet, advisory sites and </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturers’ web-sites </li></ul><ul><li>can be used to gather </li></ul><ul><li>technical information </li></ul><ul><li>on caring for a crop. </li></ul><ul><li>Satellite photos can </li></ul><ul><li>be used to monitor </li></ul><ul><li>disease and cropping </li></ul><ul><li>without walking over </li></ul><ul><li>growing crops. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Crops give particular colours when photographed from space.
  23. 23. Twenty questions Yes or no only What can it tell scientists?
  24. 24. Twenty questions What is it? Where was it found? What can it tell scientists?
  25. 25. <ul><li>Twenty questions </li></ul><ul><li>A purple coloured amphibian. </li></ul><ul><li>In hilly western India. </li></ul><ul><li>It tells scientists about the early evolution of advanced frogs </li></ul>
  26. 26. Plant Care and ICT LOs 1. describe how ICT can be used to keep records (D) 2. explain how ICT can be used for environmental monitoring (C)
