- Low environmental impact.

- High production efficiency.

- Reduced water requirement.

- Independence from soil fertility

Plant cultivation outside the soil was a common practice already in ancient cultures, as shown by the floating islands of lake Titicaca in the Andes, the Burmese Inle Lake in South-East Asia or the the Babylonian hanging gardens, During the twentieth century the technology associated to soilless cultivation has been growing strongly, putting the basis for the diffusion of High Technology Soilless Culture (HTSC) in intensive farming systems for the great advantages offered to growers. Indeed, simplified soilless cultures (SSC, also referred to as Simplified Hydroponics, SH), present several other benefits, such as being easy to build and manage, require little labor, present lower incidence of soil-borne diseases, make use of low-cost/recycled materials to build growing containers, enable to obtain higher yield and intensify productivity and shorten the chain between harvest and consumption, with reduced product depletion.

The main advantages of soilless cultivation are the independence from fertile soils, the reduced water requirements and the high production efficiency, none of them necessarily correlated with the technological level of the system Consistently, SSC are spreading in urban areas to find solutions to low fertility of the soils, low irrigation water availability, small extension of cultivated lands and environmental pollution. Successful experiences of SSC have been conducted in the last decades all over the world and nowadays a relevant number of growing solutions is available, adapting to the peculiar social and environmental conditions of the most diverse contexts.
