Entry from British & World English dictionary
The practice of growing plants in tanks of water without soil.
- The problem here is that this operation is very expensive and does not appear to be commensurate with any additional economic gains that can be expected from village tank-farming.
- Tank-farming like this makes it possible to grow plants quickly by maintaining an optimal balance of nutrients, and also means bulbous tomatoes can be harvested all year round.
- Stable harvesting is expected without any impact from natural disasters, and compared with conventional tank-farming, highly efficient harvesting is expected.
