Pegasus Agriculture finds hydroponics can save more arable land
According to Pegasus Agriculture team, the technology of hydroponics can really help with the issue of arable land shortage, as hydroponics is the technology of soilless farming. Today, about 40 percent of global land is devoted to agriculture. This percentage will only increase, without altering our current systems of development. Hydroponics is proven as the most effective technology in order to address such issues.
The construction of a series of hydroponic farming facilities is proposed as part of an effort to limit terrestrial biodiversity loss through the reversion of large tracts of current farmland into sustainable natural environments. It also optimizes the availability of arable land in current agricultural settings. Modern agriculture occupies far more than the 10.6 percent of global land that is arable.
The technology of hydroponics seeks to moderate wide-ranging environmental concerns including the unavailability of arable land. Hydroponics systems require less water and space than traditional agricultural systems and may be stacked in order to limit space usage. This makes them optimal for use in cities; where space is particularly limited and populations are high.
Pegasus Agriculture implements its technology of hydroponic farming by understanding the need for growth and development, understanding our regions' increasing infrastructure demands, understanding the threat of climate change and the need for food security. The company believes in smart growth principles that allow for growth and development while preserving and enhancing arable lands.
