As Obama and McCain debate the $300 billion farm bill, they ought to consider that hydroponics is the farming wave of the future.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 23, 2008
Senators Barack Obama & John McCain along with the Democratic and Republican parties should embrace a new kind of farming that uses less arable land, produces greater crop output, and is more environmentally safer than regular agriculture. It's called hydroponics.
That's the opinion of hydroponics manufacturers Evegeniy Stefanov Yordanov, Michael Straumietis, and Robert Charles Higgins.
Straumietis, Higgins and Yordanov started with a dream of increasing the popularity of hydroponics when they founded the Seattle-based hydroponics nutrients company Advanced Nutrients which manufactures and distributes professional hydroponics products worldwide.
"I grew up in Midwest farm country, and even then I was intrigued by new ways of farming," Michael Straumietis explains. "As I grew up, I learned that there were new ways to grow fruits, vegetables and flowers. When I discovered hydroponics, it gave me a vision of the future to work towards. And now I am asking Senators Obama and McCain to look to the hydroponics industry as they make their campaigns' farm policies."
According to Advanced Nutrients co-founder Robert Charles Higgins, "While McCain and Obama have many differences with each other about their farm policies, neither of them are considering the numerous benefits of hydroponics."
"Not only that," Higgins says, "hydroponics farming receives not one single penny of the millions available in federal subsidies or any other support, even though more and more people are staking their future on hydroponics farming."
Advanced Nutrients co-founder Evegeniy Stefanov Yordanov recalls he first caught the hydroponics fever when he was growing up in Europe.
"The European countries are well ahead of the US on this old world technology," Yordanov explains. "Whoever gets elected, Obama or McCain, they ought to consider giving a helping hand to an industry that can create millions of jobs, use far less ag chemicals, and produce very high yields in very small spaces."
Evegeniy Stefanov Yordanov, Michael Straumietis, and Robert Charles Higgins urge Americans to contact the Obama and McCain campaigns and ask the candidates to include hydroponics in their farm policies.
"We created Advanced Nutrients and are now seeing hydroponics catching hold in the suburbs and for commercial farming," Michael Straumietis says. "As Obama and McCain debate the $300 billion farm bill, they ought to consider that hydroponics is the farming wave of the future."
