Optimization of illumination and nutrients for hydroponics system
Project Description
Hydroponics is an efficient and sustainable method of growing plants without soil, using nutrient-rich water solutions. It provides several advantages, such as reduced water consumption, higher yields, and better control over environmental factors.
However, optimizing the illumination and nutrient conditions for hydroponic systems remains a challenge. This research project aims to investigate the optimal conditions for illumination and nutrient supplementation to achieve maximal plant growth and productivity in hydroponic systems.
