Benefits of Hydroponics:

Benefits of New World Hydroponics: Introduction

  • Save Water.
  • Increased Yields - more product is grown and harvested per metre square
  • Improved Quality of Yields - more nutritionally sound and therefore tastes superior
  • Increased turnover of produce - crops grow faster and more often
  • Complete control over nutrient balance - controlled growing creates a healthier crop
  • Reduced production costs - less water - less power
  • Crops can be grown and harvested on non-arable lands
  • Crops can be grown and harvested indoors 24/7
  • Crops can be grown in even the most extreme areas
  • Huge Social and Economic benefits
  • Non GM
  • New World systems use little of no growing medium
  • Closed recirculation irrigation system conserves water
  • Feeding system enables total control of the nutrient solution added to crops
  • Plants receive the exact nutrients they require
  • Only soluble nutrients in balanced formulations are used
  • Still bourne diseases can be eliminated
  • Varying nutrient formulae to suit different plants at different stages
  • Regular nutrient testing ensures all elements are present in their desired concentration
  • Growing medium can be re-used and recycled
  • Minimises the use of pesticides due to the controlled environment
  • Efficient use of fertilizers
  • Improved plant sanitation
  • Nutrient solutions may be re-used in other areas
  • Eliminates use and consumption of artificial ripening agents
  • Allows full control of all the parameters of the nutritive elements in order to obtain the best cultivation results
  • pH and nutrient levels are simple to measure and maintain
  • significant reduction of soil pests and diseases
  • greater spacing efficiency due to smaller roots
