At Rimol Greenhouse Systems, we believe that hydroponics will be a growth area of the future due to the rising global population, climate change, the desire for…
When you look at total costs, there really isn’t too much of a difference between the cost to start a #hydroponic operation and the cost to start a traditional outdoor grow. Whereas a hydroponic setup might cost the grower more on up-front equipment costs (a greenhouse, lighting equipment, CO2 equipment, etc.), a plot of land can also carry a hefty price tag, and taxes to follow for years afterward. ⠀ #rimolgreenhouse #greenhousegrowing #fourseasonfarming
When it comes to pitting hydroponics vs. soil, #hydroponics offer a whole lot more than a dirt-free way of bringing up your usual crops. Hydro grows help increase yields while saving growers time, money, and effort, all while helping you kiss soil (and the problems it brings with it) goodbye, for good.
A hydroponic environment is a tightly-controlled environment, free from accidental exposure to pesticides from the outside air or from water runoff, and because pests won’t be able to reach your indoor grow you won’t have to worry about giving up pesticides and still making your ideal harvest.
Plants grown in hydroponic environments use no soil at all to reach maturity, and only require a water-permeable material like Perlite to stay stable above a bed of oxygenated and nutrient-rich water. This provides the plants with exactly what they need to grow and reach maturity without the risks associated with growing in soil, and crops can avoid most common pests and diseases since they’re kept relatively contained for the duration of the growing process.
