Goa-based hydroponic farmer Ajay Naik believes in the use of technology in agriculture. He has turned to hydroponic farming in an attempt to grow quality food because a lot of vegetables and fruits supplied to markets today are grown using harmful chemicals that are detrimental to health. Hydroponics is the process of growing plants in water with added nutrients without the use of soil. What attracted Ajay towards this form of agriculture is that it limits the use of chemicals.
Fully equipped with the required knowledge, Ajay started his farm in Karaswada, Goa, and he now grows vegetables like lettuce and salad greens using the Nutrient Film Technique (NFT).
He will share his experiences and talk about future of agriculture. Please gather by 7 pm for food, beverages and seats. The talk will start at 8 pm.
