What is Hydroponics Agriculture
Hydroponics is known as soilless technology in which plants are grown in nutrient solutions with the use of any inner medium such as rock wool, coconut fiber, perlite and slay aggregates, etc. to provide mechanical support to the plants. It's a unique concept for Pakistan agriculture having several avenues where it can be used to successfully grow vegetables, salads, herbs, fruits, cut flowers, and grasses in the country. The major advantages of hydroponics over soil culture are more efficient nutrition regulation, availability in the regions of world having non-arable lands, efficient use of water, and fertilizers, and ease and low cost of sterilization of the medium and higher density planting, leading to increase yields per acre. Hydroponics is the most appropriate alternative for poverty alleviation and food security.
In Pakistan, hydroponics material like structure material, best quality nutrients and grow lights, etc. is difficult to find because just a few people are doing it at a large scale by importing products from China and the Middle East. There are different types of hydroponics such as Nutrient Film Technique (NFT), Deep Water Culture (DWC), Ebb and Flow, Wick Hydroponics, Drip Hydroponics, Dutch Bucket System and Aeroponics, etc.
