Furthermore, we are certain that the yield of plants that are grown using hydroponic systems are far greater that the yield of the usual soil plant. According to scientists, they believe that there are several reasons as to why there is a drastic difference between normal soil plants and hydroponic plants. It has been said that one of the advantages that hydroponic system has for plants is that it stimulates the growth of the roots by mean of providing extra oxygen. If it happens that the plants have more oxygen in the root system, what this mean is that the plants will absorb more nutrients faster than any other plants. The nutrients that come from the hydroponic system will be mixed with water and then sent straight towards the root system of the plant.
Furthermore, it has been said as well that hydroponic system is beneficial in such a way that it prevent plants from looking for sources of nutrients since they can already have it through the hydroponic system.
