Amjad Farhan Ashraf Farhan , Abd. Jamil Zakaria, Prof Nashriyah Mat and Khamsah Suryati Mohd

Abstract:
Soil-based cultivation is presently confronting dire challenges to the lack of land availability, massive escalation rate of industrialization and intense urbanization. Land-related agriculture is at stake due to irrepressible climate vicissitudes, relentless soil degradation, unbefitting management practices and other adversative effects. The settings are further exacerbated by the increment in population with respect to diminutive land availability to cultivate. Hence, soilless media culture would make ways as an auspicious auxiliary in current pressing scenario. Proper management practices and technological advancements can utterly exploit the soilless substrates effectively and efficiently. Optimization of yield pertaining to incorporation of soilless media can also result in superior quality and growth performance in relevance to less agricultural inputs being consumed.
