Hydroponic Nutrients

The required nutrients which otherwise work as essential foods for the plants are direct mixed in the water stored in a water reservoir and are directly fed to the roots of plants through water which remain in circulation in a closed loop system through water pump.

Macro (Primary) Nutrients:
Macro (Primary) Nutrients: The primary nutrients, also called as macro nutrients, which are consumed by plants forming the major proportion are N (Nitrogen), P (Phosphorous) and K (Potassium). These are necessary for growth of roots, formation of sugar, chlorophyl, Starch and also for producing fruits.
Secondary Nutrients:
The nutrients which are consumed by plants in smaller quantities are Ca (Calcium), S (Sulphur), Magnesium (Mg.) and Zinc (Zn). These mixed with Primary nutrients are consumed by plants for cell formation, respiration and metabolism.
The 3rd category of nutrients which are consumed in tiny small quantities by plants are called Micro nutrients. These are Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Manganese (Mn) and Molybdenum (Mo)
