Hydroponics Goes Global: A Look at Growing Styles Worldwide

Hydroponics will continue to expand worldwide as more people experience its benefits. Hydroponics will continue to expand worldwide as more people experience its benefits.

Hydroponics represents the cutting edge in growing, gardening, and farming; and now the rest of the world is catching on to what hydro enthusiasts have known for years. The United States, Canada, Japan, and Western Europe are spearheading the hydroponics industry, growing healthier produce and enjoying greater yields. Commercial hydroponics is practiced around the world for the simple fact that it is highly effective. It allows farmers to grow healthier produce without pesticides and other chemicals – all while conserving water. Lush, bountiful crops are being grown in smaller areas and providing greater yields. Progress in this industry has been rapid, establishing it as a viable and economical solution to common agricultural problems.

During the last ten years, commercial hydroponics has increased five or tenfold throughout the world.

Though many hydroponic growers are based in first-world countries, several greenhouses in developing countries use hydroponics technology. As more and more growers recognize the efficiency and agricultural benefits of hydroponics, the industry continues to expand. Extensive research is being conducted to develop more advanced systems and take the industry to places never thought possible.

During the last ten years, commercial hydroponics has increased five or tenfold throughout the world. Small- and large-scale hydroponic farms are found in Spain, New Zealand, England, Mexico, Holland, Germany, and Australia – just to name a few. Nicaragua has enthusiastically embraced hydroponics agriculture and now produces more than 125 million pounds of peppers with the help of this innovative industry. As Nicaragua exports the pepper, it brings in important revenue for the country – making hydroponics valuable in more ways than one.

Hydroponics prevents water from being wasted in the soil, which makes it ideal for countries like Israel that suffer from a shortage of water. Areas like Canada that have lost out on fresh crops due to seasonal changes are now able to enjoy healthy produce year-round. Hydroponics is not only being used in commercial applications, but also in individual households. As more people learn how convenient it is to grow fresh crops at home, an increasing number of consumers are looking for the availability of this portable technology.

Bountiful crops are now being grown in unlikely places like Antarctica, the International Space Station, and desert areas – all thanks to hydroponics. The hydroponics facility in Antarctica is used to provide the large staff of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station with at least one fresh salad a day. The facility also produces a variety of fruit and vegetables – luxuries the staff workers would have been forced to go without in the past. Climate proves to be a manageable obstacle for indoor hydroponics, making it highly valuable in many parts of the world.


Experts estimate the earth’s population to reach 8. 9 billion people by the year 2050.

Experts estimate the earth’s population to reach 8. 9 billion people by the year 2050. The future of our planet may very well depend on advanced expertise in plant production, sustainable management of natural resources, and food technology. No doubt hydroponics will continue to be a growing global trend as more people realize its value and efficiency. Additional countries will petition their government for recognition and support to make hydroponics a priority. An increased demand for better and safer quality produce will promote further expansion of the hydroponics industry worldwide, ensuring a happy and healthy future.
