Hydroponic Vegetable Market: Introduction:
The hydroponic vegetable is the vegetable grown over the non-soil nutrient support. Hydroponic vegetables are grown under controlled environment with no outdoor exposure. The whole process of hydroponic agriculture is controlled under a centralize computer system which controls the nutrition balance in the feed water, humidity inside the greenhouse and fertilizer concentration. This makes hydroponic vegetables grown diseases and pollutant free. The yield of the plants are very predictable and hence grantees return to the manufacturers. The hydroponic vegetables are of high quality and can be grown close to the selling point of the vegetable markets. This increases the value of the product and reduces the loss in the distribution channel for the manufacturers.
Guaranteed yield and production of exotic variety in no growing zones makes the hydroponic vegetable market very lucrative for the manufacturer to invest. The hydroponic vegetable is anticipated to grow heavily into the global market because of the food and beverage market trend for the healthy and fresh product. Also, inexpensive production cost and reduction in food miles will drive the hydroponic vegetable market towards growth.
