Hydroponics

What is it?Advantages

Introducing soil-less farming with Hydroponics!

In the process of photosynthesis, there is absolutely no mention of soil. Plants need nutrients and water to grow which is easily obtainable if the roots stand in a nutrient rich solution. Hydroponics is an environmentally- friendly process because it vastly improves upon traditional farming. Farmers generally use biocides and pesticides in order to cultivate the desired crop, however, in a hydroponic setup, it won’t be necessary.

It has a great scope to transform our food system to make it more sustainable and environmentally-friendly. Environmental concerns and a vast loss of arable land will inevitably shift the focus to foster upon how advantageous is this method.

This method bids a goodbye to conventional pest management and farming problems.

How is hydroponics advantageous?

From a more business perspective, we see hydroponics as an extremely scalable industry. It can be built as large as commercial farming and as small as using the crops indoors at restaurants, groceries etc.

One should understand that lesser the time frame between harvesting and consumption better the quality and nutritional value of the crop. With hydroponics, this becomes a sizable advantage.
Traditional farming gets affected with change in weather, good or bad. However, this method eliminates the worry about erratic weather changes as plants can be grown in controlled environments.

This industry is yet to reach its full potential and we at Sustenance are exploding with ideas!

We are currently in the research and development phase to master the art of soil-less gardening.
