Hydroponics is one of the many methods of soilless agriculture through which plants are grown using mineral nutrient solutions in water, without soil. Many commodity crops like tomatoes, onions, lettuce and cabbage have been successfully cultivated through hydroponics, and their produce well-accepted in many markets. The theory behind the method is that the soil is only a mineral nutrient reservoir and hence, it is not very essential to plant growth. The mineral nutrient can be introduced into a plant’s water supply artificially which is then readily absorbed by the plant’s root. The concept of hydroponics is significant in today’s world as it contributes to the growing concern for steadier food supply, as well as the reduction of suitable arable land for agriculture.
