 Why do we need hydroponics?

 You may be interested in hydroponics in the event that you're contemplating taking part in. It's not that difficult to grow plants using water. But there are actually many reasons that hydroponics is a fantastic method to grow plants.

 The benefits of hydroponic systems to growers include:

 - Increased yields: Because hydroponically grown plants don't need to fight soil-borne diseases and pests, they tend to outperform the soil-grown plants.

 - Higher growth rates: Hydroponically grown plants are more likely to grow faster than those that are soil-grown. This is due to the fact that they have access to more nutrients.

 Hydroponic systems require less water and are more efficient in using water than traditional methods of gardening. Hydroponic systems may use up to 90% less water than traditional soil-based methods, according to some estimates.

 Hydroponic Systems

 This type of gardening is possible by using a variety of hydroponic systems, each having its own set of pros and cons.

  Ebb and Flow System -Also known as the system of drainage and flood, this popular hydroponic system works by flooding the root zones of plants with a nutrient solution before draining it into a reservoir. The roots are immersed in a clean, oxygenated solution which results in rapid growth. However, this system will require some maintenance to ensure that the roots are not allowed to dry out.
  Drip System -- Another popular hydroponic system, the drip method works by slowly pouring the nutrient solution onto the root zones of the plant. The drip size and frequency can be modified to suit the needs of the plant. This system is extremely efficient as there is a minimum of waste and the roots always have access to the fresh, oxygenated solutions. But, this system will require periodic inspections to make sure that the drips are working correctly and the roots don't dry out.
  Wick System -- This simple system is ideal for small plants or to provide an emergency backup for larger plants. The system works by wicking nutrients from a reservoir to the roots of plants. While wick systems are simple to set up and maintain some of the solutions might evaporate.
  Aeroponic System: Hydroponic system with high-tech technology that sprays nutrients on the roots of plants with misting heads. Roots are always exposed to the fresh, oxygenated solutions, which leads to rapid expansion. However, aeroponics requires expensive equipment and regular maintenance to make sure that misting heads function correctly and the roots don't dry out.
