Last quote by Philipp Saumweber

Hydroponics is a thriving industry right across the globe, with produce being grown in a huge variety of environments. Because we don't rely on soil, we can position our farms closer to centres of population to greatly increase the efficiency of our supply chain. In a regular farm, it doesn't matter how well you organise it, when you irrigate, about 70% of the water evaporates straight away. Then the water that does get into the soil usually ends up going down to the subsoil and leaking away … taking with it the nutrients and fertiliser.feedback
