Wells Hosa Greenhouse Farms has harvested its first set of tomato produce which was planted using hydroponic technology. Not only is this technology well positioned to revolutionize Nigeria’s tomato industry, it could also contribute to the overall growth of the agricultural sector.
Hydroponic technology is a method of growing plants in a controlled environment using mineral nutrients in the water. This method of farming doesn’t require soil or direct rainfall. The technology is created using different systems involving irrigation, fertilization and pest control, to obtain an increase in a plant’s growth and nutrients, as compared with traditional open field methods.
In your opinion, is this taking the place of organic farming?
