Solanaceae vegetables are rich in vitamin E, which can protect the cardiovascular system and also whiten the skin. Solanaceae vegetables are also consumed in large quantities in our daily lives.
The promotion of soilless cultivation technology makes balcony planting simpler and more convenient, fully utilizing balcony planting space to meet planting needs. Hydroponics, also known as nutrient solution cultivation, is the process of fixing the roots of plants to grow in a mixed water and nutrient solution planting groove. Let nutrient solutions replace natural soil to provide water and nutrients for plants, enabling them to grow normally.
All the water and nutrients required for the growth of hydroponic vegetables come from nutrient solutions. Vegetables grown using hydroponic methods grow faster and stronger because the correct nutrients are directly transmitted to the roots of the plant.
The hydroponic tower system has great advantages for balcony planting. The hydroponic tower system is a three-dimensional planting structure that can greatly reduce the floor area, which is very helpful for many urban residents. For urban residents. It is difficult to have free space for vegetable cultivation in places where land is scarce. The hydroponic tower system can harvest high-yield crops without occupying a lot of space, which is very shocking.
Taking hydroponic tomatoes as an example, planting tomatoes in soil often faces problems such as soil replanting and severe diseases. When replanting hydroponic tomatoes, simply replacing the nutrient solution can solve the problem of repeated cropping, without requiring a lot of labor and saving planting costs. When the salt or toxic substances in the sink are excessive, it harms the growth of the root system. The water can be directly pumped out and replaced with new nutrient solution. The taste and quality of tomatoes grown in hydroponic culture are also much better than those grown in soil.
The main factor in using hydroponic systems in vegetable production is that their yield is 10 times higher than traditional agricultural techniques. Hydroponic vegetables grow in relatively safe environments such as nutrient solutions, so they are completely free of harmful substances such as heavy metals in the soil. The product is safe and can meet the "green" standard. Hydroponic vegetable that meets the green standard is highly sought after by modern people.
