Farmers can have total control over a hydroponic system.
They are able to manage pH and nutrients to make sure plants are getting the exact nutrients they need. The systems are closed and recycle the water that is not used by plants. The ability to grow indoors allows farmers to control temperatures and lighting schedules to improve plant production. Systems can be designed to make use of vertical space and increase planting density. Hydroponics also allow us to create farms in locations where soil conditions are too poor to support farming, or space is limited and a farm otherwise couldn’t exist.
Hydroponics comes from the ancient Greek formation of “hydro”, meaning water, and “ponics”, meaning labor. The water is doing the work here and enabling the fast growth of plants.
At its core, hydroponics is a method of growing plants. But instead of using soil, hydroponics depends on a water-based nutrient-rich solution.
The ability to not use soil and instead use organic substances like perlite, coco coir, rock wool, clay pellets, peat moss, or vermiculite has provided numerous benefits to growers everywhere.
Increased growth results from allowing the roots of each plant to come in direct contact with the nutrient solution. This is further enabled by the increased access to oxygen compared to its soil counterpart.
