"Hydroponic offers potential for coastal region amid rising salinity"

Soilless farming, or hydroponics, has plants grow in nutrient-rich water solutions, which offers immense potential for coastal regions amid a rising salinity.   

The coastal regions have been facing not only acute potable water scarcity but also water availability for irrigation as salinity hit hard across the region due to rising sea levels.

Meanwhile, the agricultural lands in the coastal region are shrinking because of the growing saline water invasion through saline water fish farming. The encroachment of saline water makes hydroponics a particularly fitting solution.

Hydroponics is well known farming outside the traditional farming practices, which requires less water usage, minimizing reliance on harmful pesticides and herbicides apart from higher crop yields in limited space.
