What is the Problem with Conventional Farming Methods?

Conventional farming methods, such as soil-based agriculture, face many challenges in India, such as:

  • Land degradation: Soil-based agriculture causes land degradation, due to erosion, salinization, compaction, and loss of fertility. Land degradation reduces the productivity and quality of crops, and affects the livelihoods of farmers.
  • Water scarcity: Soil-based agriculture consumes a lot of water, due to evaporation, runoff, and leaching. Water scarcity limits the availability and accessibility of water for irrigation, and affects the growth and yield of crops.
  • Climate change: Soil-based agriculture contributes to climate change, due to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and loss of biodiversity. Climate change affects the weather patterns, rainfall, temperature, and pest and disease outbreaks, and impacts the crop production and security.

How Blukhet Solves the Problem with Hydroponic Farming Techniques?

Blukhet has developed a novel technology that uses hydroponic farming techniques to grow crops on wastelands. Hydroponic farming techniques offer several advantages over conventional farming methods, such as:

  • Land conservation: Hydroponic farming techniques do not require soil, and can be done on any surface, such as concrete, sand, or gravel. Hydroponic farming techniques conserve land, by utilizing wastelands, rooftops, or vertical spaces, and prevent land degradation, by avoiding soil erosion, salinization, and compaction.
  • Water efficiency: Hydroponic farming techniques use water and nutrients in a closed-loop system, where the water is recycled and reused. Hydroponic farming techniques save water, by reducing evaporation, runoff, and leaching, and use up to 90% less water than soil-based agriculture.
  • Climate resilience: Hydroponic farming techniques are independent of weather conditions, and can be done in controlled environments, such as greenhouses or indoor farms. Hydroponic farming techniques are resilient to climate change, by avoiding greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and loss of biodiversity, and by adapting to changing weather patterns, rainfall, temperature, and pest and disease outbreaks.
