Hydroponic Fruit and Vegetables?









Hydroponically grown food is vastly inferior to food grown in a healthy soil, where the fungi and microbes can optimize the plant in a way that is simply impossible to do in a hydroponic environment.  “Live” soils teem with microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa and microscopic roundworms called nematodes. It’s the synergistic cooperation between these microorganisms, the soil’s biome and the plants’ roots (rhizosphere) that allows the plant to absorb nutrients from the soil in which it’s grown.

The basis of organic food production starts with improving the soil. When you improve the soil you improve your health and protect the environment.

Many people believe that hydroponically grown veggies are on par with organic regardless of the organic label, or at the very least, that they’re grown without pesticides and are therefore better for your health and the environment than conventionally grown vegetables. As it turns out, none of these ideas are necessarily true.
