Understanding how hydroponics works and how it affects the nutritional value of the foods produced can help you decide whether to include these vegetables into your diet.
Hydroponic vegetables are grown suspended in a liquid solution containing the minerals the plant needs to thrive. Our farm is located in downtown Shreveport. We have upcycled the old Altel Building. providing a acclimatized enclosed environment. The water used in hydroponic farming is recycled through the system. Because there is no exposure to the outdoors, our hydroponic vegetables are not subjected to harsh pesticides, and we employ organic farming methods, which allows us to meet the organic produce standards.
In general, the nutritional value of hydroponically grown vegetables is about the same as that of conventionally grown produce. The ability to precisely control the levels of minerals in the water when using hydroponics makes us able to maintain a consistent level of minerals within the plant, unlike farmers of soil-grown vegetables who may have to fertilize heavily to make up for poor soil quality.
