The New Era Biology Society (NErBS) conducted a webinar about hydroponics on January 27, 2021.
Mylene O. Anda, NErBS Adviser, explained that hydroponics is a form of gardening that does not use soil. Instead, a mineral nutrient solute is mixed with an aqueous solvent to grow plants in this manner.
Dr. Luvimin A. Evangelio from the NEU College of Agriculture led the main discussion. He said that hydroponics is an advantageous method for growing plants and backyard gardening in urban areas where there is limited available soil. Dr. Evangelio also mentioned that other factors should be considered in utilizing hydroponics, such as greenhouse sites, climate, and sunlight absorption.
