Hydroponics

Global climate change is not a new phenomenon. The effect of climate change poses many threats; one of the important consequences is bringing about changes in the quality and quantity water resources and crop productivity.

It can be concluded that the Indian region is highly sensitive to climate change. Agriculture sector is the most prone sector as it will have a direct bearing on the living of 1.2 billion people. India has set a target of halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. There is an urgent need for coordinated efforts to strengthen the research to assess the impact of climate change on agriculture, forests, animal husbandry, aquatic life and other living beings.
What is Hydroponics?

The science of soil-less gardening is called hydroponics. It basically involves growing healthy plants without the use of a traditional soil medium by using a nutrient like a mineral rich water solution instead. A plant just needs select nutrients, some water, and sunlight to grow. Not only do plants grow without soil, they often grow a lot better with their roots in water instead.

What are the benefits?

Hydroponic gardening is fast becoming a popular choice for many growers around the world due to its more sustainable approach to resource usage than the usual growing methods. Here are a few of its many benefits:

  • Provides an edge to the grower for effective control over the environment.
  • Yields can be selected as per the requirement
  • Root zone aeration as well as adequate porosity of medium is ensured.
  • Lower Labour Costs
  • Higher Value Crops can be grown in less time
  • Hydroponics can reduce irrigation water usage by 70% to 90% by recycling the run-off water
  • It reduces the amount of exposed moisture in the growing environment
  • It eliminates the possibilities of root diseases
