A review of literature on “Hydroponic cultivation in Bangladesh”

Hydroponic cultivation is a method of growing plants in nutrient-rich solutions, without the use of soil. This method has gained popularity in recent years as a way to increase crop yields and reduce the use of water and pesticides. In Bangladesh, hydroponic cultivation has been identified as a potential solution to address food security and urban agriculture challenges.

A study by Ahmed et al. (2018) investigated the feasibility of using hydroponic cultivation in Bangladesh to grow high-value crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers. The study found that hydroponic cultivation can increase crop yields by up to 50% compared to traditional soil-based cultivation methods. Additionally, the study found that hydroponic cultivation can reduce water usage by up to 90% and pesticide usage by up to 75%.

Another study by Hossain et al. (2019) evaluated the economic feasibility of hydroponic cultivation in Bangladesh. The study found that hydroponic cultivation can be profitable for farmers, with an estimated profit margin of 30-40%. The study also found that hydroponic cultivation can provide a stable source of income for farmers, as it allows for year-round crop production.

A study by Khan et al. (2020) explored the potential of hydroponic cultivation to address food security challenges in Bangladesh. The study found that hydroponic cultivation can increase the availability of fresh and nutritious food in urban areas, where traditional agriculture is often limited by land availability and water scarcity. The study also found that hydroponic cultivation can provide opportunities for urban agriculture and community engagement.

In conclusion, hydroponic cultivation has the potential to address food security and urban agriculture challenges in Bangladesh. Studies have shown that hydroponic cultivation can increase crop yields, reduce water and pesticide usage, and provide economic benefits for farmers. Further research is needed to investigate the scalability and sustainability of hydroponic cultivation in Bangladesh.
