At present, cities and urban areas are expanding very fast which has also increased the trend of urban farming. Now people are cultivating fruits and vegetables in the roof of the house, car parking or wherever there is empty space nearby.

This farming can be possible through a special technique where you can easily grow fruits and vegetables on only 200 square feet of space. With the help of this technique, you can grow fruits and vegetables worth up to 2 lakh rupees per year from a one-time investment of about 1 lakh rupees.  Let's know about hydroponics farming in detail.

You can cultivate it Without Soil

If you use this modern technology, then you will not need any type of soil for this. Through this technique, essential nutrients supplied to the plants are transported directly to the plant roots with the help of water. This modern technique has been named 'Hydroponic' in English.

Through this technology, the plant is grown in a pipe with the help of a multi-layer frame and inside the pipe; the roots of the plant are kept in nutrient filled water. This hydroponic technique can be used in many ways. You can also prepare this system yourself.
