Diversifying your farm through hydroponics

The future of agriculture is currently clouded. Drastic swings in weather, rising labour costs, increasing interest rates, trade disputes, to name a few, dim a bright future. It’s useful to think about what can complement your existing operation in a way that doesn’t take up too much time or resources as a way to manage risk. Adding a hydroponic shipping container farm in your existing farm is an option and here are five reasons why: 

  1. Year-round profitable growing
  2. Reduced inputs
  3. Less land and water is needed
  4. It’s not just lettuce
  5. Boost the local economy
