Hydroponic Farming in the Philippines Maximizes Yield At a Minimum Cost
A low-cost, easy-to-use hydroponics system developed in the Philippines is giving small communities with little land an inexpensive way to produce their own vegetables. The system is designed to maximize yields from limited resources and is already proving its worth with bumper harvests of inexpensive, locally grown vegetables.
So far, in communities where the hydroponic system has already been adopted, farmers are selling a surplus of crops at a profit. And based on its success, the Philippine government plans to soon expand the program to additional parts of the country.
