Hydroponics has been shown to be a successful technique for growing of plants. Yet most of the crops are still grown on land. Why?

Answers (1)

Ans. Hydroponics has been sown to be a successful technique for growing of plants, yet most of the crops are still grown on land because of the limitations that the technique poses:

a) Hydroponics is still used at experimental stages, and more developments are required before it can be used on a greater scale.

b) The initial cost of setting up the technique is extremely high. Therefore, it is not commercially viable.

c) Maintaining a high level of sterilization while growing crops is a very big problem.

d) Plants that grow through this method need nutrients and water in very frequent intervals which is rather time-consuming and problematic.

e) Since plants are grown in a laboratory, they are highly susceptible to environmental conditions.
