Hydroponics and Gardening
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water, without soil. Plants may be grown with their roots in a nutrient-rich solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, mineral wool, or coconut husk.
Some of the reasons why hydroponics is being adapted around the world for food production are the following:
- No soil is needed
- Water stays in the system and can be reused, lowering water costs
- Control the nutrition levels in their entirety, lowering nutrition costs
- No nutrition pollution is released into the environment
- Stable and high yields
- Pests and diseases are easier to get rid of than in soil
