The main objective of this research is to study the effect of source of nutrients and water flow rate to know the possibility of producing gladiolus plants depending on the nutrients existing in effluent fish farm as compared with the gladiolus production using standard nutrient solutions. To achieve that was studied the effect of source of nutrien...

Indiscriminate use of soluble fertilizer in hydroponics affects yield and quality of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) and could contribute to environmental pollution. The study was conducted to determine the critical nitrogen dose, and corresponding tissue nitrogen range, at growth stages of hydroponically (coco-peat bag culture) grown tomato under...

The growing method of organic hydroponics has matured in only less than a decade. With this method, hydroponic systems can shift from a conventional approach using inorganic fertilisers, towards a more sustainable way of employing organic fertilisers that are recycled from organic wastes; and thus, fit better into urban agriculture in pursuit of su...

Leafy vegetables like lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) naturally have high nitrate content and the European Commission has set maximum level for nitrate in lettuce. Glycinebetaine is an organic osmolyte alleviating plant stress, but its role in leaf nitrate accumulation remains unknown. The uptake of glycinebetaine by lettuce roots, and its potential to...

Aquaponics, a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, is a potential solution for the consequences of global warming and eventual food meagreness. Aquaponics is known to be an efficient method to deal with the wastewater problem associated with aquaculture and nutrient management issues in the hydroponic discipline. However, optimizing the process condition for aquaponics is frequently ambiguous and is often not economically feasible. Farmers face many constraints in maintaining the process. The main reason for this could be the limited scientific knowledge of various aspects of aquaponics. Through this review, we would like to put a limelight on various critical concerns that could be problematic to beginners in aquaponic farming. These could be from choosing the appropriate design of the system to thriving plants free of diseases. Henceforth, we identified research opportunities that have the potential to fill scientific gaps in this field. Our findings suggest that aquaponics could emerge as the future of agriculture if the discussed challenges are addressed appropriately.
