Bradford, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/23/2016 -- A recent report in the prominent online publication TechCrunch has revealed big things for the hydroponics industry; that it is at the forefront of current and future job creation, as well as managing resources – such as water – more sustainably. This news comes in light of the increasing use of hydroponics systems on an international level; the process of growing crops in a mineral solution under managed conditions. The report shows that rather than conventional farming, machine-intensive and resource-heavy, hydroponics is more streamlined and involves up to a 90% reduction in water usage compared to other farming methods.

A number of facilities using hydroponics are already in place in the UK; the development of technologies in this area also driving jobs and investment. Some people even use indoor systems to grow their own crops – especially because of the factor of increased sustainability. Saving on water and soil allows for a much more cost-effective process compared to conventional farming, hence why hydroponics is tipped as an area to expect major growth in 2016.

A prime example of a hydroponics provider and frequent commentator on industry news is Bradford Hydroponics.

A spokesperson had this to say:

"Recent reports in popular media now emphasize the benefits of hydroponics, especially when compared to conventional farming. Whether you are a commercial grower or have a personal grow project, the proven sustainability of hydroponics makes it a method surely worth considering. Some people are even tipping it as the future of food provision. That is why we offer a wide range of products here at Bradford Hydroponics, with our grow tent kits proving especially popular."
