Hydroponics & Aquaponics

Hydroponic and aquaponic technology can make urban farming in limited space more productive because they often use stackable lightweight beds and efficient LED lights to grow food. Instead of growing a plant in soil, the plant is fed a calculated diet of nutrients by circulating water beneath them. Hydroponic and aquaponic technology enhances the potential to grow food in small spaces, under any environmental condition.
