The word hydroponics has been derived from the Greek word where ‘Hydro’ means water and ‘Ponic’ means working, i.e. working water. Plants require 3 things to flourish- water, nutrients & sunlight; Hydroponics is a straightforward way of providing all these nutrients without the need of soil under controlled environment conditions to optimize the growth of plants. Today, hydroponics are used in harsh climates such as deserts, areas with poor soil or in urban areas where high land costs have driven out traditional agriculture. Hydroponic fodder production is probably best-suited to semi-arid, arid, and drought-prone regions of the world, suffering from chronic water shortages or in areas where irrigation infrastructure does not exist. Hydroponic fodder production is a boon for farmers whose soil is rocky and infertile. It is a viable farmer friendly alternative technology for landless farmers for fodder production. Fodders including maize, barley, oats, sorghum, rye, alfalfa and triticale can be produced by hydroponics.
