UNS Digital Technologies has already set up units of hydroponic farming

New technologies are coming up every day in the world. As the world population is growing, the agriculture industry is also developing new techniques to grow food in lesser space and by saving water. The hydroponic growing system is a step towards this.

The Hydroponic System is a system of growing crops without soil, often called soilless farming. In the hydroponic system, the plant roots grow in a liquid nutrient solution or inside the moist inert materials like Rockwool and Vermiculite. The liquid nutrient solution is a mixture of essential plant nutrients in the water.

The plant roots are suspended either in the static liquid solution or in a continuously flowing nutrient mixture. The hydroponic growing system requires continuous attention to the crops, unlike the traditional farming system.


• Higher productivity than the traditional farming system, the plant nutrients are effectively used, and there is no wastage.

• The hydroponic system is a controlled climate system in which the crops can grow year-round.

• Water utilization is 80 to 90 percent lower when compared to the traditional farming method.

• The crops are grown in a closed space, which eliminates the attack of pests and insects.
