Type of Aquahyd Farming
Hydroponics is a method of growing crops without soil. Plants are grown in rows or on trellises, just like in a traditional garden, but they have their roots in water rather than in dirt. Most of us confuse soil with nutrients. In fact, soil provides structure, not the actual food itself, for plant roots. The food comes from other materials mixed in the soil, such as compost, broken down plant waste or fertilizers. Plants grown hydroponically can actually grow faster and healthier than plants in soil because they don’t have to fight soil borne diseases; in addition, all the food and water they need are given directly to their roots around the clock.
Growing plants hydroponically doesn’t have to be done on a large scale, and it’s easier than you might think. Now there are kits, do-it-yourself systems and even fully automated growing tables, all designed for home gardeners.
Aeroponics is an amazing alternative for people with imited spaces to grow plants. You might be wondering “what is Aeroponios?” Aeroponics is one of the soilless agriculture techniques, very similar to hydroponics in that both the techniques don’t use soil to grow plants. Hydroponics uses water to grow plants. Whereas, Aeroponics is a technique of growing plants without any rooting medium. There is no soll or water used to support the plants roots. The plant roots are suspended in a dark chamber and nutrient rich water is sprayed on to the roots at constant intervals.
Aquaponics is, at its most basic level, the marriage of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in water and without soil) together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides organic food for the growing plants and the plants naturally filter the water in which the fish live.
