Hydroponics, a subset of hydroculture, is a growing plant without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Growing demand for sustainable and protected farming practices and higher yield of crops grown under hydroponic facilities over traditional farming are the driving factors for its growth. According to the study the average yield of lettuce per acre yearly was recorded between 9-10 tons in soil-based agriculture and 300-400 tons in hydroponics agriculture.
Increased hydroponics' investment rate over the traditional soil-based agricultural process through increased yield and minimal water cultivation might further boost the agricultural communities towards adopting the hydroponics technologies during the forecast period.
