Economic efficiency of hydroponic farming of vegetables



Economic efficiency of hydroponic farming of vegetables



Technical Bulletin of Faculty of Horticulture, Chiba University ( 43): 79-90



This paper presents one year's financial results from 18 vegetable hydroponic farms in central Japan. The crops grown were cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and Japanese hornwort. The results indicated wide variation between farms in a number of financial criteria including farm income, return per day for the operator (and family labour), and the ratio of net revenue to invested capital. The most successful farms had the largest greenhouse area with the highest gross sales.
