Hydroponics involves growing plants in a nutrient-rich water solution without soil. Aeroponics involves growing plants in a mist or fog of nutrient solution without soil.
In terms of efficiency and yield, aeroponics has the edge over hydroponics. Aeroponics uses less water and nutrient solution because the misting system allows for better absorption and utilization of the nutrients by the plant roots. This leads to faster growth and higher yields compared to hydroponics.
Additionally, aeroponics offers a higher level of control over the growing environment, as the misting system can be easily adjusted to provide the optimal amount of moisture and nutrients for the plants. This leads to healthier plants and a more consistent yield.
