Advantages of Hydroponics Growing

The Advantages of Hydroponics Growing

Longer Growing Seasons
Contrary to what many believe, having a longer growing season is not the only reason for the ever increasing popularity of hydroponics systems. In fact, there are numerous reasons why more and more people are opting for hydroponic. These could for example include increased nutritional value, cleaner produce, consistent quality and perhaps most important of all, there's no reason to use pesticides. Of course it only stands to reason why being pesticide free is desirable, given the vast amount of damage these chemicals can cause to the environment, including underground water.

Hydroponic Produce Crop Yields
It's an undeniable fact that commercial hydroponic systems produce superior yields when compared to other form of growing. This has been scientifically proven, both in the lab, as well as in the field. Of course, unlike the hydroponic plant growing systems we have in our home greenhouses, commercial systems are for the most part huge in order for them to produce enough crops to meet market demand. Generally speaking, these hydroponics farms cover roughly 10 acres although smaller versions can and do exist. According to research which has been conducted in actual greenhouses, hydroponics tend to produce approximately 20 to 25 percent more produce when compared to crops grown in soil. Of course, just as with all things, the methods used in hydroponics have also advanced over the years and today, under suitable management, annual yields of tomatoes can be double of those being grown in soil.
