 Why is Hydroponics important?

 If you're thinking about starting a hydroponics business You might be wondering what all the controversy is about. It's not that difficult to grow plants in water. Hydroponics is a fantastic method for plants to develop.

 The advantages of hydroponic systems for growers include:

  Higher yields: Hydroponically grown plants are often more productive than their counterparts grown in soil because they don't have to deal with soil-borne diseases and pests.

 - Higher growth rates: Hydroponically-grown plants also tend to have faster growth rates than soil-grown plants because they can access nutrients faster.

 Hydroponic systems consume less water and are more efficient at using water than traditional gardening methods. Hydroponic systems could use up to 90 percent less water than conventional soil-based systems, according to some estimates.

 Hydroponic Systems

 You can perform this type of gardening with many different hydroponic systems. Each one has its own pros and pros.

  Ebb and Flow System -also known as the flood and drain system, this popular hydroponic system works by flooding the roots of the plants with nutrients and draining them into the reservoir. The roots are continuously bathed in fresh, oxygenated solution, which leads to rapid growth. This system needs some care to ensure that roots don't become dry.
  Drip System -- Another well-known hydroponic system, the drip method works by slowly dripping nutrient solutions onto the root zones of the plants. To accommodate the requirements of every plant, the drip frequency and size can be adjusted. This system is extremely efficient because there is little loss and the roots will always get access to fresh, oxygenated solutions. The system needs regular maintenance to ensure the drips work properly and the roots aren't drying out.
  Wick System -- This simple system is ideal for small plants, or to provide an emergency backup system for larger plants. It operates by wicking nutrients solution from the reservoir into the roots of plants. Wick systems are simple to install and maintain, however it's not as efficient as other systems because certain components of the solution could be lost due to evaporation.
  Aeroponic System - High-tech hydroponic system which sprays nutrients onto the roots of plants using misting heads. The roots have constant access to an oxygenated, fresh solution that encourages rapid growth. Aeroponics, however, requires costly equipment, and regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure that the misting heads are working effectively and that the roots aren't drying.
