Soilless agriculture guidelines


Soilless agriculture is a modern technology created to enable growing crops in an environment where traditional technologies are median. Several techniques stem from soilless agriculture e.g. hydroponics and aquaponics. Limited water resources, variations of precipitation and frequent droughts are typical challenges for arid areas. Hydroponics offer solutions to rationalize water consumption in arid to semi-arid areas particularly when agriculture is a main activity in those areas. This manual provides farmers with a clear methodology for impelenting soilless cultivation. In addition, the manual provides tips on how to use and maintain a solar system and a ready-made design drawing of the hydroponic system as a reference drawing for implementing the system.
