The benefits of hydroponic farming give it an advantage over field farming.
Standard field farming practices have seen a lot of negative press, from concerns about soil erosion to massive water consumption to food-bourne illness breakouts.
The hydroponic farming industry solves many of these concerns.
Hydroponic systems are soil-less, water-based farming processes. Rather than using soil for plant nutrition, crops are fed nutrient-rich water, negating a lot of the baggage that comes with soil-based methods.
