Do you know where you produce came from? In years past it was common to walk into the supermarket, pick up the first tomato you saw and be on your way. As health awareness and education continue to become more prevalent and important in local communities, people want to know where their groceries came from, down to the farm and the growing process used. Organic hydroponics have become a sustainable and efficient way to farm produce, which only continues to increase in demand.
Organic hydroponics involves growing plants without soil, which makes it possible to grow indoors year-round. In a world culture that demands more food that has been sustainably grown, organic hydroponics is a great option. When it comes to organic hydroponics, the nutrients and growing practices make the produce organic. Choosing NSF-61 certified liners for organic hydroponics ensures all of your produce is grown with liners that are certified for potable water and human consumption.
