The benefits of hydroponic

 

Cleaner product and better shelf-life 

There are many reasons why it is beneficial to grow products hydroponically:

  • Considerably less water, fertilizer and crop protection is used. 
  • Less pollution or leaking to the environment occurs.
  • Soil born diseases and field conditions no longer influence production.

For these reasons, hydroponic growing systems ensure a more controlled and uniform growth, resulting in a higher yielding product. Also consumers prefer hydroponically grown vegetables because it is a cleaner product and, if sold with roots, it has a better shelf-life.
