Almost all plants can be grown using hydroponics. When crops are grown in this way, they use up 50% less land and 90% less water when contrasted with traditional crop growing methods. However, the yields from the crops are 4 times more, and the crop growth rate is twice as fast when using hydroponics. This is possible because the crops have everything they would need, at the right concentrations. In place of the soil used in typical agriculture, the farmer or gardener roots the plants in compounds like vermiculite, clay pellets or rock wool. All substances used must be inert so that they do not introduce any new elements into the plant's environment. The solution of water and nutrients is then poured over the support material so that the plant can feed into it. There is also less reliance on fertilizers, pesticides and other potentially harmful products used in conventional agriculture. This book covers the following topics: Introduction to hydroponics Advantages and disadvantages of hydroponics Terminology used in hydroponics Equipment/things you'll need Hydroponic grow systems How to select the best plants Pest and disease control Common mistakes made and how to avoid them ...And much more The development of hydroponics has not only been a response to the current food and resource problems. It is a solution for the future too. Experts say that by 2050, about 80% of all the food produced will be consumed in the cities, which makes it important for the cities to become producers of food. As the world's population is getting close to 7.5 billion and the demand for more food increasing just as fast, with emphasis on resource-intensive foods, it is clear that farming needs to be done even in the cities, and even so, more productively.
