Population index growth, diverse food needs, and volatile climate and environment... Agriculture, as the foundation of human survival, faces unprecedented challenges and contradictions. How to break the bottleneck of agricultural development is a matter of life and death for mankind. When people begin to mobilize more natural resources to enrich the dining table, only long-term and comprehensive development can ensure the diversification and stability of food.Some people say that hydroponic cultivation will become the future of agriculture. Is this the case?
What is the Hydroponic Container Farming?
Everyone may not be unfamiliar with hydroponic technology, and containers are more familiar, but how do you connect the two into a farm?Hydroponic container farming: Using containers as carriers, artificial control of light, temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors is used to provide the best growth environment for plants.
This is an automated agricultural planting system, without worrying about the impact of soil and water resources and extreme weather on planting. Hydroponic container farming use containers as carrier shells to isolate them from the external climate. Containers are used as container shells for planting crops because their strength is important for the stability and durability of the planting system. These container farms can be transported anywhere in the world, and can be stacked internally to greatly improve space utilization.
Why is hydroponic container farming called the future of agriculture?
Automated operations liberate our hands
The future world must be a technological world, and even traditional agriculture must closely follow the world's development trends. Automation has now permeated every aspect of our lives. Agriculture has always been an industry on which human beings rely for survival, and automated agriculture will provide more convenience to people.
Various types of hydroponic container farming meet different needs
Hydroponic container system can be roughly divided into the following types: Hydroponic zip system container, Hydroponic Tower system container, Hydroponic strawberry gully system container, NFT container, Hydroponic ebb and flow table container.People can choose a suitable planting system according to their own needs.
High quality and good yield of hydroponic plants
With the improvement of living standards, people have gradually shifted from the pursuit of the most basic food and clothing to the direction of healthy, green, and high-quality. How to eat healthier has become a current pursuit, especially for young people, who pursue green and pollution-free food.Vegetables grown on hydroponic farming do not undergo soil pollution and do not have to worry about chemical residues, so they are truly pollution-free food.
Save water and soil resources
Hydroponic farming are a plant planting system that does not require soil, mainly using nutrient solutions to achieve a healthy growth process for plants. Compared to traditional soil planting, its biggest advantage is that it does not pollute the soil environment and can effectively alleviate the current tense farmland problem. In addition, hydroponic cultivation requires very little water resources, and water can be recycled in hydroponic systems. Hydroponic planting saves about 90% of water compared to soil planting.
Hydroponic container farming overcomes many shortcomings of traditional agricultural cultivation and can produce more food. The development prospect of hydroponic container farming in the future is very broad.
