Agra: Just imagine can it be cultivated without soil? If you are hesitant after listening to this question, then know that an engineer in Agra has shown this feat. When the lockdown started in the country, engineer Arun Agarwal thought of growing vegetables in water.

It seemed difficult at first, but now their cultivation is flourishing and in the kitchen garden they are growing all the vegetables including tomatoes, lady fruit, bitter gourd, coriander, and gooseberry in the midst of running water in the pipes.

Arun Agarwal, a resident of Agra, is an engineer, but when the lockdown took place in the country, he too had to sit home. Vegetables were not available in the market.

In such a situation, he thought in his mind that farming should be done at home but he did not have that much space. He then tried hydroponics, a technique adopted in Israel, and decided to do farming at home without soil. He then laid a network of pipes in his house and flowed water inside these pipes at a controlled temperature and started farming there. This engineer’s formula worked and a fine kitchen garden was developed in his house.

This technique is called ‘water enrichment’ in Hindi and ‘hydroponic’ in English. In this technique, crops are grown only in water without planting in the field.

This method of farming is also called ‘aquaculture’. This farming technique is very good for the environment. Less water is used in this technique and a lot of water is also saved.

Hydroponic techniques can grow good vegetables, and vegetables are grown with this technique also reduce diseases. With this technique, anyone can build their own kitchen garden in flat culture. Only this technique requires sunlight. Plants make their food through the photosynthesis process and then grow.
