About the course
Upon completion of our hydroponics course, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of hydroponic systems, techniques, and best practices. This knowledge will enable them to cultivate plants successfully without soil, as they will gain expertise in nutrient solutions, pH management, and plant propagation. Armed with this newfound confidence, participants will be empowered to establish their own hydroponic gardens, leading to sustainable and efficient plant growth, increased yields, and the enjoyment of fresh produce throughout the year.
To facilitate learning, the class recordings will remain accessible for three months, and all participants will receive e-certificates as recognition of their achievement. Moreover, each participant will receive Hydroponics Starter Nutrition Kit valued at Rs. 700 to kickstart their hydroponic gardening journey. Detailed video tutorials will also be available to guide them in setting up various types of hydroponic systems, including NFT and Dutch Bucket.
There are no specific eligibility requirements for this course; however, having a passion for cultivating plants is certainly a valuable asset.
