Hydroponic and greenhouse technology is a technique of intensive plant production using minimal water, energy and land.

Tomato yield comparison: Hydroponics technology produce more than 1 000t/ha VS South Africa’s average tomato yield of about 56t/ha

Lettuce yield comparison: Modern floating raft system can produce >5 million heads of lettuce/ha and 20 crops/yr VS 200 000 heads/ ha/ year from conventional open field production methods.
