Conventional farming methods has long provided for our needs especially when it comes to food produce. People have developed and enhanced farming techniques so that it can become easier, the yield and harvest better and less strain is made on the land. We all know that farming or even gardening involves planting and watering. Many also use fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides to enhance the growth of produce of the plant and protect it from insects and pest. But it also became a harmful practice as it contaminated sewage system and caused irradiation.
The green revolution prompted many scientists and researchers to develop a system of crop production without causing harm to the environment and the people. This is how hydroponics farming came about. It is a farming technique that can be applied in a controlled environment such as green houses where one can grow plants over water. Important nutrients which are absorbed by the roots of the plant from the soil can now be diffused with water and plants can grow healthy and productive through the hydroponics system. While it may sound like a complicated farming system, many farmers and gardeners have found different cultivation techniques for different plants. Any kind of crop grown through hydroponic system provided high yields but depending on the kind of technique used, some plants produce more than others and bore fruit faster than the traditional method of farming.
