    1219 Words  | 5 Pages

    Soybean Hydroponics in the Arctic Tundra Abstract: Soybeans will be grown hydroponically in the arctic tundra. Greenhouses will be used to extend the possible growing season. Soybeans can serve two good purposes. They can be used as food or as a way to make biofuel. This is great for the arctic environment where it is difficult to get supplies such as food and gasoline. With a steady supply of food and fuel more research can be done in this harsh environment. The

    plants is used in hydroponics. Hydroponics, according to Petrus Langenhoven, a Horticulture and Hydroponics crop specialist at Purdue University, is “a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil” (3). This means that instead of taking nutrients through compost, fertilizers, or other means that involve adding to the soil, the plants’ roots collect nutrients directly from a water-based solution. Although hydroponics is often thought

  • A Sustainable Food Product System called Aquaponics

    1602 Words  | 6 Pages

    Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that integrates recirculation aquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment. Hydroponics is a type of hydro-culture that involves the cultivation of plants in a soil-less medium. In hydroponics, synthetic mineral solution is added as a source of nutrient to support plant growth and development. Occasionally, an inert medium of gravel, sand, coconut fibre or rice hull is utilized at root sites for plant support and establishment (Diver
