Hydro propagation: Harnessing water for sustainable plant propagation and growth

Author(s): Vishakha Saini, Gurjeet Singh, Pankaj Saha, Naveen and Jatinder Singh
Abstract: Hydro propagation is a novel strategy for plant multiplication, and essential for sustainable agriculture. This approach does not require any soil at all; plant portions especially plant cuttings are simply immersed in nutrient-rich water solutions. It has many advantages including root development, water conservation, and effective nutrient delivery. Hydro propagation is a promising approach for easy multiplication and quality production of crops. It has exact control over growing conditions, increasing plant propagation success rates. Moreover, this technique is also helpful for environment as it does not involve any kind of pesticides application and soil borne diseases. This abstract reveals the fundamentals and advantages of hydro propagation, emphasizing how it can completely transform the traditional way of cultivation. The objective of this review paper is to compile the conclusions and results regarding hydro propagation till date. This paper also involves the future directions necessary for further research and awareness.
