The article provides an overview of publications on hydroponics. On the basis of the literature data, as well as the installation of Phytopyramide, it is shown that the future of hydroponics depends on research aimed at reducing the cost of production, increasing yields and product quality, reducing the cost per unit of production so that this system becomes competitive compared to production in open ground and conventional greenhouses.

Keywords: hydroponics, aeroponics, non-substrate production systems, Phytopyramid.
