"Global agricultural trends coupled with ever changing climatic conditions warrant us to take immediate measures to reform our agricultural practices in order to feed the world. Rapid rise in population along with ground water depletion affects the ecological pyramid with erratic food consumption patterns. We stand at the threshold of a crisis that calls for urgent application of innovative technologies in finding further solutions.
With intensive research and development, with focus on innovation and technology, higronics has come up with solutions that would help solve the food crisis by introducing hydroponics, a soil-less farming technology. Growing plants and vegetables in nutrient rich water is the fundamental basis of hydroponics. The principal advantage of soil-less farming is water conservation as hydroponics saves substantial amount of water as it consumes 7% of the total water needed for conventional farming techniques. Higher crop yields, irrespective of the place you select for cultivation is an added advantage. With this technology, we at higronics, aim towards creating a revolutionary platform that will usher in a new era in feeding our planet, the ‘Clean Green Revolution 2.0’."
