The Department of Botany of Cuttack’s Ravenshaw University has made remarkable progress in the field of organic farming by producing healthy crops and adapting soilless hydroponic farming. The researchers have successfully cultivated vegetables like brinjal, green chili, cabbage, broccoli, etc, with the help of hydroponic farming.
The above experiment is being done in the greenhouse located in the department. To cultivate the plants in water, the researchers are extracting all the nutrients from the soil and giving the plants through water by artificial technology.
The necessary nutrients like PH, TDS, and ECS are stabilized by the researchers along with quantity of air. The faculty members and researchers of the department are working dedicatedly to pave more favorable ways for organic farming.
The department is also focusing on circulating this method among the farmers to uplift their skills and to strengthen its students to flourish in the field of Agri-Entrepreneur (AE).
