What to grow hydroponically
Hydroponics is a growing method by which plants are grown in a tightly controlled environment without soil and with very little water required. This method eliminates the use of traditional fertilizers such as animal manure, which has been identified as a source of E. coli and other diseases. Instead, nutritients are added to the water in small amounts (A+B). The water should contain oxygen and the plants need lighting for the activation of the growing process.
Water use is dramatically less than traditional agriculture and tightly controlled and monitored to provide the best and most essential nutrients to the plants in the safest and most efficient manner.
The controlled environment of the greenhouse protects the plants from uncontrollable outside elements such as adverse weather conditions and insects, helping to greatly minimise the need for pesticides and herbicides. Only organic pesticides and herbicides are used when needed. This means that the produce is fresh, safe, nutritious, and available throughout the year.
One can produce a number of different varieties of vegetables and fruits. So whether you are looking to prepare a delicious salad or jazz up your favourite dishes, hydroponic growing can deliver all the lettuce, leafy greens, microgreens and herbs you need.
