is the method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrients dissolved
in water. Viscon Hydroponics has
used this technique to create the planet’s first fully automatic deep water
culture system. The company utilizes its expert young plant technology to make hydroponic
system successful and effective. The aim of Viscon Hydroponics system is the safe
production of fresh crops. It is a closed growing system on deep water. Short
cycle like herbs, cabbage and lettuce are grown in deep water using the
Cultivation has a number of advantages. Viscon Hydroponics cultivates its
produce in a greenhouse thus ensuring a safe and controlled environment free of
external pollutants. In the hydroponics system there is limited use of
pesticides as the environment can be controlled much better. Various disease
hazards can therefore be avoided which pesticides may present.
Hydroponics gives you the following advantages:
Viscon manages &
automates the growing of the young plants.
Viscon supplies a vital
young plant, which will give good results through the entire process.
The Viscon system is
made up of few parts therefore cleaning it is not a very complicated process.
Viscon uses plastic
floats, which are easy to clean.
The floats have been
designed in a way as to keep the product in the correct position, no matter how
you place the floats in your basin. Therefore the available surface can be
Viscon has eliminated
the use of traditional soil blocks. The soil block that was once required to be
planted in the fields, now require new well thought out and cleaner production
cultivation methods fertilizers often get drained out of the field. But in the
hydroponic system the fertilizers stay in the system ensuring better
nourishment of crops.
The hydroponic system
avoids water wastage as it gets rapidly absorbed by the plants and needs to be
added frequently. There is no drainage of excess water.
The soil doesn’t need
processing after every cycle.
Crops can be cultivated
even in winter as the water is temperature controlled and artificial lighting
is used. The floats have an isolating effect on the water, which enables crops
to grow during cold periods.
The Viscon Hydroponic system is in
itself a transportation system because the floating produce can be transported
