Scalar Market Research's report also names Thanet Earth in Kent as among the world top 10 hydroponic vegetable market players.

According to the report, Hydroponic Vegetables Market, by Vegetable Type, Distribution Channel, Origin, Farming Type – Global Revenue, Trends, Growth, Share, Size, and Forecast to 2022, the rise in urbanisation is also promoting the market's growth.

Hydroponics is the art of growing plants without the use of soil by using the mineral nutrient solution present in water.  It saves water, land and uses less fertiliser.

Kent-based Thanet Earth says suitable crops are tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, herbs, watercress, chicory and lettuce, rooted in a natural fibre with a dripper which gives the plant a nutrient-enriched water.

1. AMCO Produce Inc.

4. Bright Farms Inc.
5. Soave Enterprises LLC.
