Under the current scenario of depleting natural resources, negative impacts of climatic variability, increased use of chemical inputs and volatile food prices are the major challenges while achieving food security for a growing population and diminishing poverty while sustaining agricultural systems. In addition to these challenges, the principal indicators of non-sustainability of agricultural systems includes: soil erosion, soil organic matter decline, salinization.
Hence now it is the need of an hour to save our soils and human health with a gradual shift into organic and sustainable farming and encourage farmers for adopting farming practices for betterment of human life. Hence it’s necessary to find out new ways of farming. Hydroponics is a way to skip the soil, sub in a different material to support the roots of the plant, and grow crops directly in nutrient-rich water. There are multiple approaches to designing hydroponic systems, but the core elements are essentially the same. Plants grown in well-managed hydroponic systems are living the good life. Since roots are bathed in all the nutrients they need, plants spend more time growing upward and less time and energy growing extensive root systems to search for food.
This course is designed with an aim to make a farmer / modern day grower enough competent to plan, coordinate and manage cultivation of their crops in hydroponic system and find stable market for their produce.
