In short, hydroponics is a non-traditional farming method that does not require soil.
Soil can be replaced with natural “media” such as coco fiber or pine bark, or can also be completely irrelevant with other hydroponic systems that utilize only water and nutrient solutions. There are actually many ways to grow hydroponically, and there are numerous advantages to it. In most systems plants are grown above the ground so insects are much more manageable, there isn’t any dirt which essentially makes your produce cleaner, and water conservation is prevalent.
Hydroponic growing is eco-friendly and a sustainable way to farm. We are always evolving to find more efficient and practical methods of growing fresh, clean and completely synthetic-pesticide free vegetables.
