The availability of water and land is one of the significant factors to be investigated for sustainable agriculture all over the world. The present report discusses the aeroponic system and provides information on currently available soilless systems. This study evaluates the growth of plants concerning their growing mediums. We investigate that coconut peeling is an efficient medium for plant growth. In coconut peeling the plant growth is 6.8cm which was more than the other growing medium. Aeroponic systems use less water than other soilless systems since water is circulated continuously. However, due to a lack of technical skills and sufficient literature, the aeroponic system is not fully implemented among local farmers, and only a few farmers have adopted the technique. Another purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of climatic conditions on plant growth and water consumption. On the first day of the experiment, the temperature is 32-degree celsius and the relative humidity is 35 percent and the average growth rate of plants in different growing media is 1.08 cm. At the end of the experiment, the temperature is 26.5degree celsius, relative humidity is 44 percent and the growth of plants is 5.70 cm. Hence with a decrease in temperature, plant growth is increased and water consumption is decreased. As a result, the purpose of this research was to learn more about the development and maintenance activities involved in using an aeroponic system and growing plants with less use of water. These findings could help researchers, farmers, and individuals interested in using aeroponic technology learn more.
