Hydroponics is a method of farming without soil using an inert growing media and adding nutrients solution into the water.

Hydroponics is a method of farming without soil using an inert growing media and adding nutrients solution into the water. The system grows approximately 100 to 120 high-value green leafy plants (lettuce, arugula, basil, stevia, parsley). Given climate change impacts, Smart Cities will need to feed themselves with indoor gardens.

Advantages of Hydroponics:

      • Growth 30-50% faster
      • Crops density X 3 to 10
      • Spare water up to 70 to 90%
      • Reduce transportation
      • No pesticides
      • Fresh vegetables all-year-round
