The benefits of

The benefits of hydroponic The demand for hydroponically grown leafy vegetables is increasing fast. All over the world growers and consumers are more and more interested in this way of growing vegetables and the consumption of them, especially leafy products and herbs. Enza Zaden is closely involved in the development of varieties that are suitable for this innovative, environmentally friendly method. Benefits There are many reasons why it is beneficial to grow products hydroponically. First, considerably less water, fertilizer and crop protection is used. Moreover, less pollution or leaking to the environment occurs. Hydroponics also means that soil born diseases and field conditions no longer influence production. For these reasons, hydroponic growing systems ensure a more controlled and uniform growth, resulting in a higher yielding product and better quality. Consumers prefer hydroponically grown vegetables because it is a cleaner product and, if sold with roots, it has a better shelf life. Vertical Farming Growing vegetables in a Vertical Farm (V.F.) is a recent development within leafy and herb production. In this system, plants grow hydroponically in different layers, under only artificial lighting and in a complete controlled atmosphere. This way of growing takes less space than the traditional way of growing. That’s why Vertical Farming is often located close to or in big cities.
