Hydroponics and problems of modern agriculture

Emilia Obłuska


Our food production and distribution systems look disastrous nowadays. Excessive use of pesticides, fertilizers, soil sterilization and monocultural crops have a huge impact on natural ecosystems and biodiversity on Earth.

Many people say, however, that hydroponics can be one of the big steps to repair them.
