What makes Hydroponics a green technology?
- Hydroponics is a green technology that is becoming the preferred method for agriculture production. The technology allows us to keep the land in its natural state, no disturbing by tilling or erosion from water usage. Areas like basements, rooftops, closets, bedrooms, and attics can all be utilized as gardens! Hydro gardens can also be built vertically to increase the efficiency of a space even further Plants grow 2x as fast and have a 30% greater yield because they don’t have to compete for space or nutrients with weeds or pests. This allows people to use less space and harvest more food! No need for pesticides plants can be grown totally organic! Water can be conserved because hydroponic gardens utilize 90% less water than a traditional garden. Plants are natural scrubbers of the air… more plants equals cleaner air!
- By growing indoors or in greenhouses, conditions can be controlled to enable year round growing regardless of what season it is with the increase of farm-able areas due to hydroponics food can be produced locally keeping food fresh and healthy! Also there is no need for large trucks or ships to haul food over large distances reducing the consumption of fossil fuels! Because the conditions are controlled and there is no competition from weeds hydro gardening takes less time and effort the traditional gardens.
