As climate change begins to pose new challenges for conventional outdoor food production methods, hydroponic farming is fast gaining popularity in Africa & South Africa. One of the most important advantages of Hydroponic culture inside the Greenhouse is the possibility to save water with the irrigation system. Up to 90% of water is saved in comparison with crops grown in soil.
Inside the Hydroponic Greenhouse, the irrigation system called “closed loop” represents considerable advantages for growers both in economic and environmental terms. The excess water that is not absorbed by the plants is simply recirculated, so there is no unnecessary waste.
