Water is the source of all things, and our body is composed of about 70% water. At the same time, our normal life activities are always inseparable from the use of water. From this, we can see how important water is to us, but there are many countries on Earth that are in areas with very poor water resources. For example, Kuwait is a country with a high degree of Desertification, located in the Middle East.
The water resources of the entire country in Kuwait are extremely scarce, and there are no other water ecosystems such as springs, rivers, or lakes within Kuwait. Even with a long coastline, the high salinity makes it impossible to directly use them for agricultural irrigation. Therefore, water scarcity has become the norm in Kuwait. In addition, Kuwait is located in the hot and dry Arabian Peninsula, which is extremely hot in summer and cold and dry in winter, with very limited annual precipitation and high evaporation.
Due to its unique geographical location and natural environment, Kuwait's agricultural development has always faced enormous challenges. However, after long-term efforts and attempts, Kuwait's agricultural level has also made certain progress. Kuwait actively introduces advanced agricultural technology and develops modern scientific and technological agriculture.
In the process of modern agricultural development, soilless cultivation has always been favored by people. Soilless cultivation of vegetables is the most advanced cultivation technology in the world today. Soilless cultivation has many advantages that soil cultivation does not have. Generally, there are three types of soil free cultivation: hydroponic culture, aerosol culture, and substrate culture. Among them, hydroponic cultivation is the focus of the development of soilless cultivation technology, which is easier to operate and has lower costs compared to other soilless cultivation techniques. Many people who are just starting out with soilless cultivation will choose hydroponic cultivation as their first choice.
Kuwait began to develop hydroponic greenhouses, and hydroponic technology originated in Israel. Using nutrient solution instead of soil for plant cultivation, hydroponic techniques are currently widely used in the production of vegetables, fruits, and flowers in developed countries such as Europe, America, and Japan. Hydroponics refers to the environment in which plant roots grow without a fixed substrate, and the roots grow in nutrient solution or moist air containing nutrient solution, serving as a carrier for vegetable growth.
In a hydroponic greenhouse, professional hydroponic planting equipment can be used to implement hydroponic planting technology. Single planting equipment can also be used as a combination of planting equipment. The hydroponic tower system, NFT system, ZIP system, and so on can all be used in the greenhouse.
Combining greenhouse and hydroponic cultivation can better solve the shortage of land resources supply. Both traditional soil planting and hydroponic cultivation require a certain amount of land resources as support. However, hydroponic cultivation breaks away from the limitations of soil and achieves the goal of planting without soil. Therefore, hydroponic greenhouse is a more developmental agricultural facility.
