Hydroponics Has Benefits

LSU AgCenter

Hydroponics is an alternative method for growing plants. This now modernized form of horticulture originated during the 1500s and can be used as a different approach to home gardening.

Hydroponic systems can be extremely beneficial for gardeners with limited space or materials. Once up and running, these systems can be simplified while still providing the benefits of the reduction of pests, limited weed growth, and a larger and faster harvest yield.
