The India is a country where fresh fruits and vegetables exported worth Rs.8,06,807.32 lakh and 27,15,601.36 MT in the financial year 2020-21. Refurbishment of agriculture styles and methods to improve productivity is indispensable. Hydroponic farming method is one among them. Hydroponic farming is one the contemporary mode of farming, where crops or plants are grown without soil. In hydroponic farming method the plants are grown in water which is rich innutrients and mineral supply. As the population grows, availability of land for growing food (scale) decreases and to supply sufficient quantity food with minimum land resource may be a challenging task for the country. Hydroponic system is the technology that requires minimum land (i.e. 1/5th of the land required for soil-based farming), water and resources. Crops grown hydroponically will grow faster, healthier, zero carbon food and also it can be grown more organically. In India at initial stage, no estimates are available and most of the projects are in trail and sample stage and also many farmers are struggling because of lack of technology, skills and proper infrastructure for hydroponic farming but this constraint can be removed with the aid of training, education and with skilled labor.Some of the market research in India and business intelligence firm predicts that Indian hydroponic market would likely to grow at annual growth rate of 13.53% between 2020 and 2027*. So its very important to know that where hydroponic farming sustainability in India. In this study we have tried to analyze the hydroponic farming sustainability in India.
