What is the difference between conventional farming and hydroponics?

    The main and glaring difference between hydroponics and conventional farming is that hydroponics does not use soil to grow plants.  Hydroponics uses nutrient rich formulas in place of soil.  These formulas consist of the same nutrients, and more, than soil naturally produces to provide the ideal growing environment for plants.  Hydroponic growing is typically on much smaller scales than conventional farming due to the cost of the formula.

    Hydroponics are perfect for personal home growing, but would require an elaborate set-up to produce growth on scales capable of feeding populations.
