Aeroponics

Why Aeroponics is Superior to Other farming Technologies.

Aeroponics is a valuable farming system, like Hydroponics, however Aroponics has been found to be superior than Hydroponics. This article will define Aeroponic in full, it will also outline some of the characteristics of Aeroponic farming technology that has made it superior to all others. In this farming system crop farming is done entirely without soil, and therefore without the disadvantages that comes with traditional soil and open media cultivation, such pesticide and the chores associated with direct farm cleaning.

This process uses air and mist as the primary farming requirement, once the farming apparatus is set up. Unlike hydroponics which employs water in it’s farming methodology, Aeroponics does not require water, and growth medium is not necessary. It is pesticide free and functions close to a natural environment farming process. It strives on the abundance of oxygen and carbon-dioxide, and a nutrient enriched mist spray. Since the procedure allows for good exposure of the root area, farmers take advantage of that point, and can apply the needed crop food directly into the roots of the crops. It is also important to point out that the exposure of the roots in this system of crop plantation gives researchers great opportunity to study the root developmental process, while the process is actually taking place. The benefits of water and energy conservation in Aeroponics could not be overemphasized. Because of minimal water and energy requirement, this procedure has been embraced by farming experts and novices alike. It has made crop growing and cloning attainable to just about anyone interested in doing so. It is also faster and cleaner. So it is generous in productivity, free of crop ailment, and clean in processing, as well as cost effective for interested practitioners. Because of the potential reliability and productivity of this type of farming NASA has made huge investments here on Earth and in outer space. According to the initial findings there are excellent reasons to pursue Aroponics as a serious farming mechanism. While huge commercialization in this country is an on-going process, in 2006 the nation of Vietnam made Aroponics her official potato cultivating process. Gradually national and international food chains are beginning to invite Aroponics products to their shelves. From the ability of this system to support massive food production and the apparent neatness associated with the process as well as it’s cost effectiveness , and the fact that nations are beginning to see the process as something could be depended upon to feed an entire nation, it is therefore reasonable for one to infer that this is a protocol that is here to stay.
