The Benifits of Hydroponic Gardening

Invaluable Benefits of Hydroponics


 

   Hydroponics is an exploding industry that has yet to reach its full potential. The use of hydroponics broadens the ability to garden in small spaces where adequate land is scarce and in arid or barren conditions not conducive to propagation.

Other benefits of hydroponic gardening include eco-friendly cultivation processes, water conservation, no use of herbicides or pesticides, bigger yields, and the ultimate control over your cultivation environment.

The applications of hydroponics are highly diverse, ranging from commercial food production, to flower growing, to home gardens and indoor herb containers. From balcony vegetable gardens to sustainable horticulture, hydroponic cultivation can be used just about anywhere.

More and more people are realizing the health and economic benefits of cultivating their own food sources as a way to ensure pure, untainted foods. People are realizing the benefits that hydroponics offer in times when incomes are decreasing and food costs are increasing. Hydroponics eliminates the concern of contaminated foods in the commercial industry, as well as the costs associated with manufacturing and transporting of such goods.

In summary, hydroponic gardening offers a natural, healthy and versatile solution to many of today’s concerns, including food contamination and unhealthy practices within the commercial food industry, environmental impact of commercial agriculture, cost effectiveness, and sustainability at all scales.

Land is quickly becoming a limited resource, resulting in less farmland to grow food. The answer is hydroponics. Hydroponics can be utilized in many different applications from rooftop gardens, apartments and vacant lots. Urban hydroponic farms eliminate the risk of bacteria laden foods, costly distribution, while maximizing yields with the ability to grow off-season crops year round. Currently in North America, 95% of greenhouse vegetables are produced hydroponically.
