Hydroponic Farming

Karen Technical Training Institute for the Deaf

Certificate 3 months Part-Time Fee: on application

Overview

Hydroponics can simply be said to be the process used to grow plants without soil. It literally means ‘working water’. The grower is taking ‘control’ of the plant's root environment, and losing the benefit of 'mother nature's' finely-tuned mechanisms which normally control that part of the plant's environment.

A hydroponic grower provides the optimal levels of food and water that plants need for growth in the form of nutrient solutions. They can also control the environment in a variety of ways to influence plant growth, such as by providing artificial light, humidity, or by manipulating temperatures.

Hydroponics is not an easier way to grow plants, it is a more controlled way of growing plants.

In this Hydroponic Farming certificate program you will:

  • Learn to grow plants commercially in hydroponics
  • Learn about the equipment and materials used in both amateur and professional hydroponics
  • Discover the nature and scope of this industry and the career and business opportunities it offers.
  • Develop networking, resources, business and technical skills, building a foundation for success in the hydroponic industry.
