About the Book

This CD offers readers beautiful photographs of produce that were grown hydroponically without getting into the technical aspects of the science. A companion to Hydroponic Food Production, it covers the outcome of hydroponic growing techniques, without focusing on the science. The principle covered crops include tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, eggplants, lettuce, arugula, bok choy, herbs, watercress, and microgreens. Examples are given of some very unique futuristic applications of hydroponics in vertical systems, rooftop gardens, and resorts. Finally, some personal photos of colleagues actively working in hydroponics at universities and in the coordination of conferences and courses.
