HYDROPONIC

Hydroponics is the method of growing plants in nutrient-rich water-based environment.

Hydroponic cultivation uses nutrients extracted from minerals to improve the cultivation system and artificial light sources to promote growth.

The ability to grow indoors allows farmers to control the temperature and lighting schedule to increase plant yield. The system can be designed to utilize vertical space and increase planting density.


Plants can be planted more quickly than soil cultivation to ensure that plants obtain the required alternative nutrients. 

Comparing to the traditional soil cultivation, Hydroponics has the Following Advantages:

ZERO SOIL

Indoor farming in a climate-controlled environment means farms can exist in places where weather and soil conditions are not favourable for traditional food production.

農場標誌7

PESTICIDE-FREE

No chemical weed or pesticides

are needed when operating a hydroponic system.

2x GROWTH RATE

Many crops can be produced twice as fast in a well-managed hydroponic system. Production increases 3 to 10 times in the same amount of space.

NUTRIENT EFFICIENCY

Decreasing the time between harvest and consumption increases the nutritional value of the end product.

WATER CONSERVATION

Up to 90% less water

LOCAL PRODUCE

The shorter transportation period, the longer shelf life.
