A Comparative Growth Wise, Biochemical And Anti-Nutrient Properties Study On Green Leafy Vegetables Solanum Nigrum And Alternanthera Sessilis Cultivated By Hydroponic And Conventional Method
Soilless or liquid culture may serve as an alternative to conventional soil-based cultivation systems. The goal of the current research was to examine several hydroponic growing methods and assess their potential for usage in conjunction with traditional farming for the development of certain vegetable crops, including Solanum nigrum and Alternanthera sessilis. Standard protocol has been followed for growing both the species and also in evaluating biochemical and anti-oxidant contents. In this experiment the growth rate of both species found to be higher in plants grown in hydroponic condition. Similarly, biochemical and anti-oxidant contents are higher in plants grown in hydroponic condition. This study concludes that plants grown in hydroponic condition when supplemented with several components could give higher and nutrient rich yield compared to plants grown in conventional soil method.
