Hydroponic farming is often referred as the farming of the future! It holds great promise in an increasingly water-challenged condition across the world due to climate change. As hydrophobics or indoor vertical farming involves a controlled environment in a large covered facility, it is not affected by the variations in weather conditions and is virtually climate-proof.
The farming involves LED lighting along with natural light and nutrient-enriched water which sometimes involves fish farming or pisciculture for natural nutrients. The plants are grown in soil-free growth mediums including coco peat like Nature’s Shield Coir Peat.
Hydroponic farming is a great way to embrace a healthy lifestyle. It brings the opportunity to consume fresh produce grown locally. The process is healthy and involves virtually no pesticides or artificial fertilizers. It facilitates the use of organically grown crops in the local community.
Why hydroponic farming is best
Hydroponic farming is soil-less and involves recycling water, and using it to the maximum. Plants get their nutrients directly through the water. As the farming is completely done in a controlled environment, there are no risks of weeds, pests & rodents destroying the crops.
Importance of Nature’s Shield Coir Peat in hydroponic farming
Nature’s Shield Neem Coir Peat is an ideal medium for planting seedlings because it is made of natural coir which is fibrous. The seedlings easily attach their roots to the peat and grow naturally. It is an organic fertilizer enriched growing medium. These are made from the coconut husk which are then enriched with organic neem cake fertilizer so that it can demonstrate great pest deterrence properties along with much needed nutrients. This peat is best for placing on trays to be stacked vertically. This helps optimize space and increase productivity.
Natures’ Shield bug free Coir Peat helps plants to grow their roots and find water to the maximum. This helps them absorb more nutrients from the water and grow faster. The plants can easily place their roots within the peat and absorb the water and nutrients that get delivered right to them. As the coco peat holds water, it is a perfect medium. This helps to conserve water and reduce the overall use of water by over 60% to 80%. In the controlled environment, water evaporation is also reduced considerably.
The highly recommended organic neem cake fertilizer in Australia is Natures’ Shield Coir Peat helps release the nutrients to the plants, helping them achieve better immunity to plant blights. The product is certified by Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and is also vegan Australia certified so that it can be used with confidence for producing 100% organic produce.
