Hydroponics, discovered at the beginning of this century, has very antique origins, even from pre-historic times.
Today, HYDROPONICS means A NEW HORIZONT in the production of food and plants with low environmental impact.
It is an optimal solution in those cases where the environment does not allow a successful traditional cultivation (rocky, sandy, arid grounds) or where the drought or lack of water is such to make them difficult or even impossible.
Comparing to the cultivation in soil, there is no contact with pathogen agents of ground and basic rot is completely avoided. The root system of the plant is protected by an inert and aseptic substrate, thanks to which, the cultivation is under control, on a nutritional and health status.
The plants cultivated in soil use their major energy to search for nutrients through the roots and this activity limits their development and growing.
This method allows a reduced quantity of water, ca. 1/10 part of the consumption of the growing in soil.
So, not to underestimate, is the environmental impact that means an aimed use of fertilizers without spreading in soil, the total absence of herbicides and a very reduced use of pesticides which often damage the plants.
The economic aspect, especially the environmental one, and the ecological “mood”, nowadays can not be underestimated, so these technics of cultivation are developing into a real new way of growing plants.
Strawberries, aubergines, peppers, onion, tomatoes, salad, grapes… They also can be cultivated everywhere taking care of the environment and health, with the maximum efficiency.
