Indoor saffron farming with special reference to hydroponic system

Indoor farming is a method of cultivating crops or plants normally on a large scale entirely indoors. But, we must make sure that our indoor room’s insulation has enough R-value to support farming 24×7. The R-value is the measure of resistance to heat flow which is thermal resistance indicating the temperature difference when a unit of heat runs through it.

It measures thermal resistance per unit area. It is the ratio between difference in temperature between warmer surface and colder surface of a barrier and heat instability through the barrier.

Soil is not the only solution for growing crops. Under such soilless conditions, the roots of plants develop inside the wet torpid materials such as Vermiculite and Rockwool or in a liquefied nutrient solution which is a combination of vital plant nutrients in the water.

Saffron cultivation and maintenance is not everyone’s cup of tea as it is a very painstaking task. It is very labor intensive. But saffron, if grown in a hydroponics system is very easy and less backbreaking than it would be traditionally.
