Abstract: Global food consumption of the increasing world population is expected to increase significantly in the next decades. However, as the world's natural resource base (land, water, and air) is put under greater demand to raise food production, all of the main resources for modern agriculture are becoming less available. Increased food production can be obtained through increasing crop fields and improving cultivation. The hydroponic system is one of today's most advanced crop production methods. A hydroponic system's basic components include nutrient film technique (NFT), deep water culture (DWC), wick hydroponic, flood and drain system, drip hydroponic, and aeroponics. This study compared the solar-powered Aeroponic technology to the standard lettuce growth approach. The plant growth parameter viz. plant height (7.6, 12.9 and 20.1 cm, and 5.6, 10.4 and 16.6 cm), number of leaves (9.6, 14.0 and 17.2, and 5.0, 9.6 and 13.4) and leaf length (8.5, 10.4, 12.5 cm, and 7.3, 9.1 and 10.9 cm) at 15, 30 and 45 DAT for aeroponic system and conventional method of cultivation, respectively.
