Simple Nutrient Addition Program (SNAP) Hydroponics
SNAP hydroponics is a low-cost hydroponics system for soil-less vegetable production. It is best for home-based vegetable production and ideal for small spaces typical in urban area. It is simple to set-up, maintain and operate since it only requires enough sunlight, air movement and protection from rain. Aside from this, SNAP does not need electricity compared to other hydroponics system since it incorporates passive aeration of the nutrient solution used. The system is also inexpensive since about 90% of the supplies needed to set-up the system comes from recycled materials and it requires low manpower. Return of investment can be realized as early as in the first year of operation.
