Amit Saurabh, Ashutosh Sharma and Sukhjinder Singh
Soilless culture is an artificial means of providing plants with support and a reservoir for nutrients and water. Today, it is used widely in research facilities as a technique for studying plant nutrition. Crops grown under soil are tomato, capsicum, cucumber, peas and cauliflower. Substrates used in soil less culture must be lost cost, disease free, easily available and should be able to provide sufficient nutrients to crop plants grown in it. Studies reported that vegetables grown in soil less media is a feasible method for reducing the cost of cultivation of vegetable crops under protected conditions without loss of yield and fruit quality.
