Do you want to rapidly start cultivating vegetables, fruits and herbs at your home without using land? Do you want to learn how to cultivate green plants and vegetables high in nutrients? If yes, then keep reading... First book - Hydroponics, or more correctly and in a general sense, soilless cultivation is a technology aimed at growing plants in a nutrient solution (water that contains nutrients) with or without the use of an artificial medium (sand, gravel, vermiculite, perlite, rock wool, etc.). Liquid hydroponic systems have no other means of supporting the roots of plants; systems in a solid medium, instead, use a substrate as support. Soil-free cultivation systems are also classified as open (when the nutrient solution draining from the roots is not reused) or closed (when the surplus solution is collected, corrected, and returned to the system). Soil-free crops are mostly grown in the greenhouse, often requiring high technology and substantial capital. However, they are very productive, ergonomic, efficiently use space water, and (potentially) protect the environment. Since in such agricultural systems the regulation of the air and radical environment is one of the main aspects, the production takes place through the parallel control of the temperatures of the air and of the roots, of the light, of the relative humidity of the air, of the water, plant nutrition and climatic adversities.
