5 Hydroponic Fun Facts and Figures


Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil. It is the fastest growing sector of agriculture, and it could very well dominate food production in the future. There are many advantages of hydroponics and here are 5 great reasons to start growing now....

hy•dro•pon•ics / hidra’päniks/

Noun: the science of growing or the production of plants in nutrient-rich moist inert material, instead of in soil.
Latin: words “hydro” meaning water, and “ponos” meaning labor.

90% farmers claim that some hydroponic crops use 90% less water than the same crops in traditional soil farming.

1/4 of the space - you can plant 4 times the amount of crops in the same space as traditional soil farming.

zero soil used - grown in an inert medium without soil with perfectly balanced pH, nutrients solutions and highly oxygenated water which is delivered directly to the roots.

x2 growth time - some crops can grow twice as fast in hydroponics due to getting exactly the correct amount of nutrients, water and oxygen.

0.0 chemicals - hydroponically grown crops can use NO herbicide or pesticide chemicals which significantly impact the environment and our bodies.
