Farmers are facing so many problems in agriculture field. We are trying to rectify some of the problems by our automated hydroponics system. The problems faced by farmers are small and fragmented land-holdings, usage of large amount of manures, Fertilizers, Biocides, Irrigation, Lack of labours, Pest control, Seasonal crops. To overcome the above problems we are going to study which medium is suitable for plat growth except soil and which wavelength of light is suitable to give high yield. From the result of this research we are going to implement the effective hydroponics system.Hydroponics is a technology for growing plants in nutrient solutions (water and fertilizers) with or without the use of artificial medium (e.g., sand, gravel, vermiculite, rock wool, peat, coir, sawdust) to provide mechanical support. Different methods are available in hydroponics method. In our project we are using Deep Flow Technique (DFT), which is very easy to implement and produce high yield in small area.
