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:
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.
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.
Decreasing the time between harvest and consumption increases the nutritional value of the end product.
Up to 90% less water
The shorter transportation period, the longer shelf life.
