Aeroponics

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

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 solution to provide.

The International Potato Center (CIP) promotes the use of aeroponics for the production of disease-free mini tubers.

Potato plants are typically grown from a seed potato, but they can also be grown from true seed, which is more cumbersome but greatly reduces the possible transfer of diseases.
