The economic potential of hydroponic plants, he said, is very tempting, as it has a place in the modern market with a fairly high selling value, thus its business opportunity should be considered.
Sukamta hopes that people can use their own yards or lands in order for the organic vegetables from Tanah Laut to flood the retail and modern markets.
"This can be an opportunity to improve the community's economy," he said.
It should be noted that SMAN 1 Pelaihari received the 2020 National Adiwiyata award. Until now, the school continues to make every effort to improve the students in their learning.
