Soil-based agriculture is facing some major challenges with the advent of civilization all over the world, such as decrease per capita land availability. Apart from this, due to rapid urbanization and industrialization as well as threats from climate chang its related adverse effect, the land cultivation is going to further facing challenging threats. Under such circumstances, in the near future it becomes intricate to feed the entire population using the production from soil field system.

Hydroponics growing uses mineral nutrient solutions to feed the plants in water, without soil. The nutrient solutions usually contain micr secondary agriculture, and it could be impetus to food production in the future.
