Most Profitable Plants To Grow Hydroponically

So, is hydroponic farming profitable? The answer is, yes. If you do your research on the most profitable plants to grow and sell, you should have no problem making money. You also want to take a look at growth time too.  To figure out some of the most profitable plants to grow hydroponically we used the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Farmer’s Daughter Herbs, and Simply Hydroponics and Organics. Once we determined the price per pound for crops that can be grown hydroponically, we ranked them starting with the highest price fetched. 

Cannabis $1600 per pound 

Ginseng $ 500 – 600 per pound

Bayleaves $ 30 per pound

Microgreens $ 20 -25 per pound

Tarragon $ 16 per pound 

Chives $ 14 per pound 

Mint $ 14 per pound 

Dill $ 14 per pound 

Basil $ 14 per pound 

Cilantro $6 per pound

The Growing Trend of Women In Hydroponics

The role of women in hydroponics gardening and the hydroponics industry is changing fast. In the past the vast majority of growers were males, as were the vast majority of hydroponics entrepreneurs, retail store owners and spokespersons.  NFT Hydro has seen a growing acceptance of hydroponics among women n South Africa and Africa. We certainly see women embracing the hydroponics lifestyle be that to start their own business or to supply fresh greens to restaurants or markets. We love growing together.

Hydroponics on the rise

The vast majority of plants are still grown using soil, but hydroponics is on the rise.

Globally, it was estimated that the hydroponic farming industry was worth $21.4 billion in 2015, with its value projected to grow at 7 per cent per year. Slowly but steadily, farming appears to be changing.

Equally, there are big global changes on the horizon, and these will vastly accelerate the use of controlled-environment agriculture. By 2050, an extra 3bn people could be living on Earth, with over 80 per cent of the global population living in urban centres. We’re already using the vast majority of land suitable for raising crops, so new growing areas need to be found. This is reason why our NFT kit systems are so popular because you can

simply GROW anywhere.

Purpose Designed Hydroponic Grower Profile for High Yield Crop Cycle & Production

Know the advantage of a purposed designed Hydroponic profiles

  • Pre-drilled with custom plant site hole configurations
  • 3.65 meter lengths are more manageable thus:
  • Economical to transport at initial installation,
  • Easier to remove at crop harvest,
  • Easier to brush clean, removing algae build-up after harvest,
  • Unique inner ribbed surface which importantly:
  • Promotes oxygen at the plants root base promoting faster healthier growth,
  • Rounded upper edges avoids leaves sticking to the profile surface,
  • Elevates growing medium for less saturation and sogginess at early stages of plant development,
  • Distributes water nutrient evenly,
  • Strong and rigid having a 3 millimeter wall thickness,
  • Food safe,
  • UV stabilized for harsh African weather conditions,

Know the disadvantages of using waste water down pipes

  • Does NOT come pre-drilled!
  • 6 meter lengths proves:
  • Difficult & expensive to transport at initial installation,
  • Near impossible to remove at crop harvest,
  • Near impossible to brush clean, removing algae build-up after harvest,
  • No ribbed inner root base surface which:
  • Deprives plant roots from oxygen and promotes root rot,
  • Saturates the propagation medium causing sogginess at early stages of plant development,
  • Water nutrient get confined to the center middle only,
  • Weak in rigid having a thin wall thickness,
  • Will require the use of net pots to avoid saturation of the propagation medium at root base!
