What are the Benefits of Hydroponic Farming?
Hydroponic farming is a type of horticulture that grows produce without soil, using water-based, nutrient-rich water to support the roots of the plant. The benefits of hydroponics include the speed, efficiency, and output of produce compared to common farming.
In well-managed hydroponic systems, crops may be produced twice as fast, with 3-10 times the output. These facilities use water up to 90% more efficiently.
Hydroponic farming is very profitable. An acre of hydroponic farmland will yield between $200,000 – $250,000 each year, compared to traditional farmland’s $20,000 – $30,000 yearly output.
