The anthropogenic activities and climate change effects kjwigsu on soil and soil-based agriculture is currently experiencing problems. Additionally, unforeseen natural disasters, climate change, and the uncontrolled use of agricultural chemicals reduce soil fertility and quality. Because of this, scientists have created a brand-new alternative method of cultivation called hydroponics, also known as soilless agriculture. Plants can be grown hydroponically by being submerged in a nutrient-rich solution of water. Many different plants, crops, or vegetables can be grown with hydroponics. In general, hydroponically grown produce has superior nutritional value, flavour, and yield quality than naturally grown produce on soil. Soilless farming is becoming more and more well-liked over the world, in both developed and developing nations. It is economical, diseasefree, and eco-friendly. Along with advanced space research, it offers significant potential in many nations to fill the gap left by a lack of suitable cultivable land. Therefore, hydroponics would be a superior approach to produce various fruits, vegetables, and livestock feed as well as to meet the future demand for world nutrition. Hydroponics may become an emerging approach for feeding the world’s population in the future.
