▶ Among the vegetables, the species of the Solanaceae family are of great importance due to their nutritional value, with a high vitamin A and C content.

Within the taxon Solanaceae, the species Capsicum annuum is the most important edible vegetable as edible after the potato and as a condiment after the tomato, because it contains appreciable values of vitamins, in addition to organoleptic conditions of pleasant taste.

In relation to the productive yields at crop level, the agronomic labors that are applied to the cultivation of Solanaceae, which go from germination to fructification, are from the economic point of view quite expensive, hence the reason for the prices of this group of vegetables at market level.

Based on the high production costs of Solanaceae species, in recent years agro-ecological alternatives have been developed on a global scale, with the aim of reducing the high costs of agricultural management, among the techniques that are currently being promoted, hydroponic production has become the most viable alternative in the search to solve these problems of excessive production costs, and at the same time achieve high yields
