Hydroponics technology to grow plants without soil. Hydroponics is matching words in English by the University of California WFGericke – California. Was set up by the Greek two words that Hydro water (Water) and Ponos that work or labor (Labor), as well as work on water (Water Working).
Growing plants without soil can be divided into two forms.
1. growing by the roots immersed in a nutrient solution is needed. The growth of the plants directly.
2. planting material other than soil and water with a nutrient solution or water, fertilizers. Plant material may be inorganic substances such as sand, gravel, stone, natural or man-made, such as Purdue Light (Perlite) Vermillion cue light. (Vermiculite), rock wool (Rockwool) or organic materials such as peat (Peat), Moss (Moss) sawdust, bark, bark, coconut husks, fresh chopped coconut husk charcoal and so on.
The benefits of hydroponics.
The first was to provide a more controllable environment for plant growth. Instead of using the same soil Get rid of the unknown to make the experimental lot.
Secondly, it is many plants will yield more in less time than ever before. And sometimes it’s better quality than the original. The environment and the economic one. Cropping hydroponics will be profitable for farmers to grow more aggressively and with no soil. Therefore, no plant diseases and weeds in the soil without having to manage the soil. You can also grow closer together as a result, the plant thus yield greater volumes while using limited space also has been used very little water. Because the use of container Closed loop water system The water circulation Compared to traditional agriculture. It takes only a little bit.
