Abstract

Hydroponics is a viable solution to obtain intensive agriculture, in terms of producing vegetables and fruits as tasty and nutritious as those produced in classical crops. In the current changing climatic conditions, it can be a viable solution for obtaining high quality food. In addition, the system allows establishment of crops, which do not require the use of soil or manure, but only water that contains various dissolved nutrients. This agricultural cropping technology involves the use of various fertilizers instead of soil for the growth and development of plants. The light needed to develop the plates can come from the sun, or can be produced by renewable energy sources.
