Lots of algae?

by Jerry Chick
(Georgetown, DE)

I'm growing 4 varieties of lettuce on rafts. This is my 3rd crop of lettuce which is growing beautifully. The problem with this crop is algae growing in the solution containers. This is the first time this happened. Do I need to control this and how do I control this?

Light in getting into your solution, make the raft from thicker Styrofoam if that's what you are using, Also is the reservoir light tight, You need to keep out as much light as possible.
