Abstract:

Soil based cultivation is now facing difficulties due to different man made reasons such as industrialization and urbanization. Also, sudden natural disasters, climate change and unrestricted utilization of chemicals for agriculture purposes cause the depletion of soil fertility and quality. That is why, scientists have developed a new alternative approach for cultivation system namely soil-less cultivation or hydroponics. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient rich solution. Through hydroponics a large number of plants and crops or vegetables can be grown. The quality of yield, taste and nutritive value of end products produced through hydroponically is generally higher than the natural soil based cultivation. This cultivation is cost effective, disease free, eco-friendly and is gaining popularity all over the world, in both the developed and the developing countries. It has a great prospect in many countries along with high space research to fulfil the lack of arable land where proper cultivable land is not available. So, hydroponics would be a better technique to produce the different kinds of fruits, vegetables and fodder as well as meet the global nutrition demand with making advance future. In the future, hydroponics could be emerging techniques for the supplying of food to the world wide population.
