Currently hydroponic cultivation is gaining popularity all over the world because of efficient resources
management and quality food production. Soil based agriculture is now facing various challenges such
as urbanization, natural disaster, climate change, indiscriminate use of chemicals and pesticides which
is depleting the land fertility. In this article various hydroponic structures viz. wick, ebb and flow, drip,
deep water culture and Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) system; their operations; benefits and limitations;
performance of different crops like tomato, cucumber, pepper and leafy greens and water conservation
by this technique have been discussed. Several benefits of this technique are less growing time of crops
than conventional growing; round the year production; minimal disease and pest incidence and weeding,
spraying, watering etc can be eliminated. Commercially NFT technique has been used throughout the
world for successful production of leafy as well as other vegetables with 70 to 90% savings of water.
Leading countries in hydroponic technology are Netherland, Australia, France, England, Israel, Canada
and USA. For successful implementation of commercial hydroponic technology, it is important to develop
low cost techniques which are easy to operate and maintain; requires less labour and lower overall
setup and operational cost.

We are purchasing 1.13 acres of land near Nanjangud,Karnataka. So need details for undertaking hydroponic cultivation, and what would be the approximate cost to do it in 1 acre

Initial investment for Hydroponic cultivation is higher and only some crops like tomato, cucumber and green leafy vegetables can be cultivated. Commercially farmers have not yet started hydroponics.

Instead you can go for shade net or poly houses in one acre, flowers, vegetables like capsicum, cucumber , tomato etc can be cultivated . Moreover 50% subsidy is available for from state Government for construction of poly house or shade net house.

Please think over.
