Hydroponic System is a system of growing crops without soil, often called soilless farming. In the hydroponic system, the plant roots grow in a liquid nutrient solution or inside the moist inert materials like Rockwool and Vermiculite.

The liquid nutrient solution is a mixture of essential plant nutrients in the water. Hydroponic plants with mycorrhizae tend to be healthier and yield better than those without, just as in soil ... The good news is you don't need high nutrient concentrations for hydroponics— Hydroponics is described as the process of growing plants or crops in water without the use of soil, while organic farming involves choosing not to use inorganic fertilizers in the growing process. Plants make their own vitamins, so vitamin levels tend to be similar whether a vegetable is grown hydroponically or in soil. It's the mineral content that can vary in hydroponic crops, depending on the fertilizer used. ... Thus plants grown through Hydroponics have better nutritional value.
