Abstract: Hydroponics is an under development system of cultivating plants in water, without any dependability of using soil. It is a modern way of developing crops and it starts growing into more and more people since overpopulation has caused augmented food demand and by constantly rilling the ground is degraded dramatically over the course of years. By using hydroponic methods, several advantages come into surface like biodiversity recovery. space conservation, expansion of production capacity and more. The aim of this dissertation is to show and analyze several significant attributes of hydroponics and after that part, present and observe the results that were obtained from the experiment that was created. The experiment's goal is to evaluate the fertilizer and aeration levels in to two lettuce varieties hydroponically and over floating disks in order to note which combination is the most appropriate to use.
