Food acts as a fuel for
human body.to run all the human cars on our settlement we need to provide them
with their fuel-food. The cultivation of food that we eat is called
agriculture. Agriculture that we do on earth in the same way we will practice
this in our settlement but the difference is that ,instead of doing it with the
help of soil we will do this with the process of hydroponics.

Hydroponics
is a system of growing plants in a nutrient rich solution. We are using
hydroponics because it will give the required nutrients directly to the roots
of the plants, thus this will reduce the wastage of nutrients.   There
are many advantages of using hydroponics. The biggest advantage of using
hydroponics is that; if we use hydroponics we will get a large scale of
production.With
a proper setup of this type of vegetation we can grow plants 25% faster and can
produce 30% more that we are growing on earth.Our
plants will grow larger and quicker as they do not need to concentrate more in
getting nutrients as they are getting readymade nutrients instead they will
focus on growing faster and healthier .We
will also control the amount of nutrients to be put and pH levelThis
type of vegetation will use less amount of water as compared to other type of
vegetation.

There are around six types of hydroponics

We will be using only two types of it

Deep
 Water Culture Nutrient
Film Technique  

 

Deep water culture –

We
have a reservoir method of cultivation known as deep water culture DWC.In
all the types of hydroponics this is the easiest one. In this process the roots
of the plants are suspended in a nutrient solution. The
nutrient solution is actually oxygenated by an aquarium air pump. This will
help our roots from drowning. The
main advantage of using deep water culture is that there is no need of drip or
spray emitters to clay. Because of this we can say that deep water is an
excellent chic of organic hydroponics.Henceforth,
we are choosing this type of hydroponics for agriculture purpose.                         Nutrient
film technique-It
is a type of hydroponics in which there is a continues flow of nutrients over
the plants root. This type of solution will be placed on a
slightly tilt pipe which will help the nutrients to flow with the force of gravity. This will help the plants to grow as the roots
of the plant will absorb oxygen from the atmosphere than from the nutrient
solution itself. The
plants will be able to get more oxygen which will lead them to grow faster this
will happen because only the roots of the solution come in contact with oxygen. Because of this quality of Nutrient Film
Technique we chose this type of hydroponics for agriculture purpose.   Nutrients required From
air and water plants will absorb oxygen, carbon and hydrogen we will get these
all nutrients from the decomposition of reaction and secondly they are present
in our environment also. The other micro and macro nutrients required are
nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium will be obtained from asteroid mining.      Plants that can be grown- Vegetables that will be grown –
