What is HYDROPONICS?

Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil. Most commonly, hydroponics cultivates plants in nutrient-rich water, although hydroponics can also be considered to be the practice of growing plants in other aggregates, such as a soil-less bark-based/Perlite or Coir Peat mix. Hydroponics is an advantageous method of cultivation for domestic and commercial use. There are no weeds to deal with, and hydroponic plants are typically more healthy, mature earlier, and use less space.

  • Low downtime between crops
  • Easy to maintain systems
  • Pesticide Free
  • Minimal use of water
  • Used Water can be recycled and used
  • No water run-off, avoids pollution
  • Minimum Carbon Footprint
  • Soil-Less Cultivation
  • Absolutely Hygienic, No Chemical Trace
  • Can Grow Vegetables, Fruits and Herbs
  • Is non-messy, clean agriculture and appeals to the modern generation

Mission

Our mission is to help by training people in rural and urban areas to set up Hydroponic Vegetable and Herb gardens on their rooftops, balconies, backyards and even on window sills. We wish to make Urban farming a norm in the years to come. This technique will help common people to learn the methods of growing their own pesticide free food within the resources of their own homes. This has great relevance at a time when food security crisis is slowly becoming a reality in the world.
