This article delves into the revolutionary Nutrient-Film-Technique (NFT) within hydroponic systems, exploring its principles, advantages, and applications. By channeling a nutrient-rich solution directly to plant roots in a continuous, shallow stream, NFT offers numerous

benefits over traditional soil-based cultivation methods.


This article examines the mechanics of NFT, its optimal conditions for plant growth, and its role in enhancing crop yields while conserving resources. Furthermore, it discusses practical considerations for implementing NFT systems, including maintenance, nutrient management, and scalability.


Through a comprehensive analysis, this article aims to elucidate the transformative potential of NFT in modern agriculture and its implications for sustainable food production.


 

What is Hydroponics System?


Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil, where plants receive all of their nutrients from a water-based solution. Instead of soil, plants are grown in an inert medium such as perlite, rockwool, or coconut coir
