Why use hydroponics?
Experience the benefits of hydroponics farming over traditional soil-based agriculture. Precise control over nutrients and water delivery, hydroponics ensures optimal plant growth. Hydroponics reduces the need for harmful pesticides and herbicides. Conserves up to 90% of water compared to traditional farming, reducing environmental impact. Year-round cultivation and consistent crop yields, regardless of seasonal variations. Hydroponics is space-efficient, making it ideal for urban areas with limited space.

What is hydroponics?
hydroponics ˌhʌɪdrə(ʊ)ˈpɒnɪks/ noun noun: hydroponics
the process of growing plants in a soilless medium or water, with added nutrients but without soil.
It’s commonly believed that the earliest known use of hydroponic techniques begun around 600 B.C. within the mysterious Hanging Gardens of Babylon, where freshly oxygenated water rich with nutrients was used to grow plants without soil and hydroponics was born.
Origin 1930s: from hydro- ‘of water’ + Greek ponos ‘labour’ + -ics.
It wasn’t until the 1930’s that hydroponics got its modern name when Dr. William Gericke perfected his hydroponic techniques, and decided to give them a name, combining the Greek words ‘hydros’ (water) and ‘ponos’ (working) into one word.
