What is Hydroponics?
Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without the use of soil. It is also known as “Soil-less culture”. The word originates from the culture of growing plants in water from the Greek words – hydros meaning water and Ponos meaning work.
In soil, nutrients and water are randomly placed, and often plants need to expel a great deal of energy by growing long roots to find water and nutrients. By expelling this energy the plants growth is not as fast as it could be.
With hydroponics the plants take up more nutrients as those grown in soil, because the root is only submerged in water and nutrients. This means the plants growth rate is 300 X faster and the plants absorb nutrients as ions in water.
Importantly plants grown in hydroponics are no different from plants grown in soil as they have the same physiology but more nutrients, grown at a faster rate and bigger size.
With Global demand soaring and capacity limited by access to fresh produce in the GCC, Investments in this market are expected to yield returns of 12-16% conservatively.
