Hydroponics- a ‘no soil’ farming technique being perfected in Qatar

Doing it in Doha with a focus on farms and agriculture: hydroponics ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒด

What is hydroponics?๐Ÿค”

๐ŸŒพGrowing plants without any soil at all

How does this work?๐Ÿค”

A mix of water with a mineral-rich solution in a climate-controlled area.๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฅ€

Plants simply grow with their roots immersed in the water-based solution.๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

Why does it work so well in Qatar? ๐Ÿค”

Water is scarce as is land space. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜…

In this way, a closed system for both irrigation and land space is used, maximising resource savings. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ˜

Because it is easier to monitor nutrient levels in such a contained space, crops tend to be of higher quality. Customers prefer the taste too! ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿƒ

How much of Qatar is using hydroponics? ๐Ÿค”

In 2009 already, there was 20 per cent of total area making use of hydroponics. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒ

Good for the environment, lowering cost and delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜Š

Hydroponics is a technique of the future, right here in Qatar. ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ˜Š
