Is hydroponics environmentally friendly?

Nov 04,2022 | TangShun Chao

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants using a solution rather than using soil. There are many ways to use this technique here, and it is very convenient and useful. Therefore, when we grow using this technique, the roots receive a solution rich in the nutrients needed for growth and dissolved in water in a balanced way. When the mineral nutrients in the soil are dissolved in the water, the roots of the plant are able to absorb them. It is possible to grow almost any plant using hydroponics because the plant is able to absorb the nutrients into the solution, so the plant does not need a substrate to grow and thrive.

1. Hydroponics is an excellent method of agricultural farming.

Hydroponics is, to date, an excellent agroponics method and is flourishing in countries with unfavorable agricultural conditions, a proof that combining hydroponics with good greenhouse management results in much higher yields than open crops. In this way, we can make vegetables grow quickly and provide them with a diet rich in nutrients. Hydroponics it's simple, clean and cheap, so it's a very attractive resource for small-scale farming.
It has even reached commercial standards and has been grown in this way for food, ornamental plants and young tobacco plants for various reasons due to the lack of sufficient soil.

2. Hydroponics plays an environmental role

Nowadays, the soil in many areas is contaminated by spills or microorganisms that cause plant diseases or reduce the quality of the soil due to the use of groundwater, and hydroponics is a solution to the problem of contaminated areas, unlike soil cultivated plants that are contaminated by parasitic pests and germs in the soil. Therefore, hydroponics is a way to solve the problem of contaminated areas without contaminating our living environment with pests and germs in the soil, and to make our homes safer, cleaner and more secure. And because it is free from soil, we can use more and more beautiful vases, vessels and materials to plant, not only can we appreciate the flowers and leaves, but also the process of root growth and the beauty of their thousands of forms that we don't usually see, which is very neat and stylish.

3. Conclusion

Hydroponics is an increasingly popular technology because it does not require agricultural land and is also suitable for growing ornamental plants at home, as well as optimizing resources and space. If we expand hydroponics, we will break up agricultural soils under the enormous pressure of excessive fertilizers, plows, herbicides and other chemicals, while contributing to the reduction of pollution.
