Complete Guide of Hydroponic Organic Vegetable Farmingby Natures Miracle Hydroponic Vegetables and Fruits Farming In India
In the past few decades, the urban Indian population has grown to be more health conscious than ever before. As a result, hydro culture is also evolving and is finding new and better methods to cater to the needs of the population.
Hydroponic farming is one of the brilliant ideas in modern times. With this practice, onecan easily grow almost anything, not only in large greenhouses but also in small backyard kitchen gardens.
Hydroponic farming is a method of farming without soil. All you need for your plant is a nutrient-rich solution in a water solvent and some sunlight for the plant to grow. This is one of the most sustainable methods of farming around the world and is now also becoming a popular choice in India amongst farmers with small holdings, farming enthusiasts and agricultural scientists. Hydroponic farming is a vertical & horizontal farming method and therefore requires less space. This can be easily practiced by someone in a space as small as an apartment balcony. The cost of setting up this kind of farm will vary according to the length and height of the setup.
A large number of vegetables and fruits can be grown with this method. Tomatoes, lettuce, spring onions, peppers, strawberries, blueberries, basil, and coriander are some of the most commonly grown plants with this method. The technique is most suitable for leafy vegetables and these can be grown throughout the year with this technique. Another major advantage of this technique is that it requires a minimal quantity of water, unlike traditional farming which requires huge quantities of water. For instance, to grow a kg of vegetables through traditional farming approximately 1800 to 3000 liters of water is required, however the same can be done through hydroponic farming and would require approximately 15 liters of water.
This revolution in farming is a boon for the farmers and for the farming enthusiasts in towns and cities who are at the disposal of limited water and space.
For urban residents who are desperately looking for the solution to the problem of insecticides and pesticides infused vegetables, this is a great way to change their lifestyle. This makes for an excellent healthy snack food for kids and adults as well. It is time we bid adieu to chemical treated vegetables and enjoy the benefits of fresh and tasty fruits and vegetables.
