According to FAO, approximately 660 million people could face hunger in 2030. It is evident that the world is witnessing an increase in food crises due to temperature increases, abnormal rainfall, floods, economic recessions, conflicts, etc.
Therefore, hydroponics (multiple ways in which plants can be grown without soil) can show a sustainable solution to this problem because:
- In a controlled system, good quality fresh produce can be provided for several harvest cycles per year.
- Saving water, nutrients and space.
- Isolation from diseases or insect pests.
- Little labor.
I’m Orly and, if you are thinking of implementing a hydroponic system, particularly Deep Water Culture (DWC), I look forward to helping you in the process of your crop.
