What are the advantages of hydroponic growth?
• Hydroponic systems take up to 50% less land to grow the same amount of crops, which is beneficial for preservation of the wildlife reserves and saving trees, which would otherwise be cleared for agricultural purposes.
• It uses less than 10% the amount of water that would be required for growing in soil, therefore a great quantity of water is being saved every day.
• The hydroponic growing solution circulates through the plant’s roots, the plant absorbs exactly what they need, which reduces fertilizer requirement up to 60% in comparison with soil growing, where most of the fertilizer is lost due to settling or crystallizing in the soil.
• Due to the fact that hydroponic systems do not require soil (which hold bacteria and many common insects), there is no need for toxic pesticides, herbicides or any other chemical to protect the plants.
