WHAT IS HYDROPONICS?
Everyone is talking about hydroponics. But what is it?
Hydroponics is an agricultural solution that is being embraced across the U.S. and around the world. These efficient systems grow plants in water-based, nutrient-rich solutions without the use of soil. The word, hydroponic, comes from latin and means working water. Simply put, it is the art of growing plants without soil.
The two primary barriers to the acceptance and use of hydroponic systems are quickly eroding:
1) Lack of knowledge. Farmers and entrepreneurs (especially in the U.S.) didn’t know about hydroponics or understand it. This is rapidly changing as AmHydro sets up more growers worldwide.
2) Outdated economics. Historically, when water and land were abundant (i.e. cheap) and when no one was concerned about their food being produced thousands of miles away, the economics of traditional, soil-based farming were more favorable. But today, with our Small Business Bundle and the ability to grow hydroponically near, or in urban centers, the economics have shifted in favor of hydroponics, and AmHydro.
Hydroponic farming will change the world!
We are no longer limited by climate or by season in the pursuit of clean, fresh food. We can now grow virtually any plant, anywhere at any time of day or year. With the simple, effective hydroponic systems now available, coupled with modern horticultural lighting, we can literally save precious resources like water, reduce the use of pesticides and feed the world!
