In previous articles, we have explored many different types of hydroponic systems. A recap: hydroponics is the art of growing plants without soil but by using nutrient-rich, water-based solutions. This type of farming is convenient as it is particularly helpful in areas with poor soil conditions or little space for cultivation.
Other benefits of this type of farming system include an increase in crop yields, crops with healthier nutritional value as no artificial pesticides are required, and it is near 90 per cent more efficient in terms of its water usage.
On a commercial scale, it is initially costly but in the long run, economically sound and sustainable. It also is a great way for aspiring, small-scale farmers to experience interior cultivation without much financial stress.
