The purpose of this study is to assess the implementation of hydroponics technology in the Middle East using the STS framework of Social Construction of Technology (SCOT). The question that guides this research study is, “What is the sociotechnical process of implementing hydroponics technology in the Middle East?” The significance of the research is that it will shed some light on if hydroponics offers a solution to water-scarce regions and how important the implementation of a technology is to its success.
