Hydroponic Farming: Know how Hydroponic produce earns like ‘Organic Farming’?

Agricultural products produced by hydroponic technology are free from harmful chemicals and pollution.


Hydroponics means the ‘technique of growing crops without soil’. In modern farming, yields are obtained by providing suitable crop nutrition through a liquid medium in a protected environment. The most important thing is that the entrepreneurs producing agriculture with the Hydroponics technique are selling their products at a good price in the market. They do this by declaring them equivalent to ‘Organic Farming’ and earning good profits. The logic behind this is that the vegetables grown by hydroponic technology are far more chemical-free and cleaner than those grown by any other method. The pollutants are also negligible in this production without soil and in a highly controlled environment.

Hydroponic method can reduce Import

According to Dr. Ashok Kumar Singh, who is working as Deputy Director General (Agriculture Extension) at the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi, India currently imports foreign green salad worth more than Rs 50 billion annually. This burden is significant for the country’s foreign exchange reserves. The pleasant aspect of hydroponic technology is that due to this, imported varieties of fruits and vegetables can be produced in the country at a low cost. Due to this, where the import burden decreases, the consumers also get the product they choose at a lower price.
