Let’s look at some of the key reasons why more traditional farmers turn to soiless farming:

  •  Hydroponic is easy to develop in strategic places; this means that the hydroponic crops can be grown close to the market area; therefore, reducing the cost that could have been used in transportation and these automatically reduces the production cost, hence increasing the gardener profits.
  • Hydroponics can be produced at any season since they grow into their own controlled environment which is controlled and protected from predators like plant eating animals.
  • Less amount of time and work is required in hydroponics gardening; the amount of work needed is very little due to the absence of the weeds that would require time to pluck them out.This method is time saving since no weeds are present only some few minutes are needed to check the nutrient levels and the harvesting processes.
  •  Hydroponic plants will grow larger; this is because you have full control over the plants environment to the optimal.
  •  Hydroponic plants can be grown everywhere; it is said to convert any terrain into fertile farming land.With the normal farming or the soil farming, there are multiple problems such as pest, climate and soil diseases.
