A Guide to Hydroponic Gardening

A GUIDE TO HYDROPONIC gardening This system is also utilized by produce farmers who wish to produce their crops year round despite environmental changes. WHAT IS HYDROPONICS? Hydroponics is the method of organically growing plants without soil by providing all nutrients in the plants water supply It is à green process in that, no plowing or disturbing of soil that can lead to erosion is necessary for this completely soil free farming system. Weeds cannot grow. Outdoor pests cannot harm the produce. Plants grow more rapidly, have bigger yields, and can be grown year round. • Hydroponics can be used by individuals who wish to grow small organic gardens indoors FACTS Hydroponics Commercial Tomato farmers are The average yield of hydroponic 18X uses as little as now picking between tomato farming is 1/10th of the 4,000-5,000 amount of water more per acre than used for tomatoes week with traditional farming. conventional this system. farming. Commercial lettuce farmers pick up to 3,000 heads per week because their crop is maturing in less than 4 weeks in less than 20,000 square feet of greenhouse. Utilizing organic hydroponic nutrients ensures that there are no ill effects of chemical fertilizers on the plants being grown. IN HYDROPONICS, ALL THE NUTRIENTS THE PLANTS NEED ARE ADDED TO THE WATER IN THE FORM OF SOLUBLE FERTILIZERS. n ts nu minerals HISTORY OF HYDROPONICS Ancient origins: The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the ancient Aztec floating crop system and Egyptian water-grown crops along the Nile reveal innovative growing techniques that historians consider to be the first examples of hydroponics. In 1627: Francis Bacon published Sylva Sylvarum, the earliest published work on growing terrestrial plants without soil.
