Hydroponics is growing a plant without soil, usually in an inert substance such as rockwool or perlite to hold the roots for water and nutrient absorption. Hydroponics dates back several hundred years, as there is evidence that ancient civilizations grew plants in water. Nutrients are vital to the success of growing. There are sixteen essential elements that a plant needs to grow, and the right balance of these nutrients must be maintained for each specific variety of plants. Equally as important as nutrition are the factors of light, temperature (heating and cooling), and carbon dioxide. Insects play a key role in pollination and pest management. When you combine all of these factors, you create the controlled environment necessary for a hydroponic greenhouse.
Hydroponic systems offer growers benefits like increased plant productivity, a high yield per plant per square foot and fresh produce regardless of season or ground temperature. Today, there are many varieties of plants grown hydroponically which serve many different market segments, including farm stands, grocery stores, restaurants, processing plants and institutions. Hydroponic operations can vary in size from small operations (less than 1,000 square feet) to large operations farming many acres.
At Rimol Greenhouse Systems, we believe that hydroponics will be the next big trend in growing due to the rising global population, climate change, the desire for healthier lifestyles, and the increase in food-borne diseases as a result of conventional farming practices. Rimol Greenhouses has strategically partnered with American Hydroponics to provide customers the highest quality greenhouses with exceptional hydroponic systems. We take an individual approach with every customer to design and build each specific greenhouse, factoring in your crop type, location and overall budget.
