Hydroponics is a modern farming technique – it is the process of growing or cultivating plants and crops without soil. In hydroponics, the crops are grown in a controlled environment system using mineral nutrient solutions in water.The crops are growing in greenhouses or in multilevel buildings. Hydroponics use two mediums to grow the crops – solid medium and solution medium. The solution method is gaining popularity in the world. This process of growing crops is being adopted globally to produce good quality crops in regions with unfavorable climatic conditions in a sustainable manner as the water used for growing crops remains in the system and can be reused.


The end-users of Hydroponicsare the commercial and residential users of this technology who grow plants without the use of soil.
The technologies used in the hydroponics market is of soil-less cultivation wherein mineral nutrient solution is used instead of soil to provide necessary nutrients for plant growth. These plants are grown in greenhouses or in multilevel buildings.
