Hydroponics is a soilless technology of crop production where crops are grown in a non nutritious medium and suplimented with the nutrients they need at every stage. This type of farming can be practised anywhere even in urban areas. The practice is to ensure that the amount of farm crops that are being produced are enough to meet the market demands and also improve the agricultural sector by making it more practical at any place any time. Hydroponics also helps crops attain maturity at a very fast rate and the amount of production in this sector is actually higher than the normal ways of farming. With the changing technoogy in the world, hydroponics is more likely to be adopted at higher rates because it is clean farming, clean food, clean hands.

I will programme more trainings for more people in the hydroponics system of farming since most of the people in the region have not yet adopted this type of farming. Besides that, i will open up an agrovet that shall supply the farm input and equipement to make sure that this farming system is achievable within the region.
