Aeroponics

Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate. The word "aeroponic" is derived from the Greek meanings of aero- (air) and ponos (labour).

Aeroponic culture differs from both conventional hydroponics and in-vitro (plant tissue culture) growing. Unlike hydroponics, which uses water as a growing medium and essential minerals to sustain plant growth, aeroponics is conducted without a growing medium. Plants are grown suspended in a closed environment. Roots are sprayed with a nutrient rich solutions to provide.

The International Potato Center (CIP) promotes the use of aeroponics for the production of disease free minitubers
