What is hydroponic farming? Hydroponic farming is a growing method where plants are grown without soil. They are grown with nutrient solution bathing the roots of the plant giving them all the nutrients they need to propagate to a bionutrient dense vegetable.
Are hydroponic vegetables as nutritious as soil grown vegetables? A healthy plant makes its own vitamins whether it is grown in the soil or hydroponically. However, minerals can vary in the soil as well as how the hydroponic nutrient solution is prepared. Regarding the nutrient solution, minerals are added to supplement the minerals desired to achieve a bionutrient dense plant. In many cases, a controlled nutrient solution can produce a vegetable that is "nutritionally superior" to that of soil.
