Aeroponics is considered the most modern and promising farming technique of the future for the terrestrial and space plants growth, with the greatest reduction in CO2 emissions and the greatest contribution to reducing climate change.
The term Aeroponic (derived from the Greek language, that is, from the Greek terms aeras (air) and ponos (pain, work, labor).
Plants are grown in specific trays or pots with the assistance of artificial support instead of soil or substrate. The roots are suspended in the air inside the growth chambers under complete darkness and intermittently pulse-misted with a fine spray of nutrients and moisture.
The intensive nutrient uptake and oxygenation of the root system optimizes the root metabolism, thereby maximizing plant growth rates
