Hydroponics is a method for growing crops without soil where water serves as the substrate for growing the plants with the addition of fertilizers to supply th plants’ essential nutrients and promote its commercial success. Although research projects to raise crops in a fertilizing solution began as early as 1933 with an initial formula for concentrations of 12 essential nutritional elements in a solution, it was only fifty years later that this idea of cultivating the crops directly in a solution with no soil moved forward from research projects to modern farming applications. This Hoagland solution, first developed by Dennis Robert Hoagland University of California, Berkeley has been upgraded and modified over the years in line with the different crops and farming methods.
