As the crops under hydroponics grow without soil, the need for external nutrients is very high for hydroponic-based crops. With the increase in the use of soilless growing techniques in hydroponics, most of the crops are directly grown with the roots in the nutrient medium. This leads to an increase in demand for nutrients in this industry.
