Browse our blog posts to take a more in-depth look at running an aquaponics system. Find out the Aquaponics Secrets!
Aquaponics utilizes natural processes. We rely on these natural processes to produce a truly organic nutrient bank. - Nitrosomonas Bacteria - Nitrobacter Bacteria These two bacteria are naturally occurring. They are in the soil and water all around us. When we provide the starter compound, ammonia, the bacteria swing into action and grow and multiply according to their food source. The nitrogen cycle TheNitrosomonas bacteria convert the ammonia to Nitrite, and when Nitrite is present, then theNitrobacter Bacteria convert the Nitrite to Nitrate. Nitrate is, of course, the principal plant food for all plants, in particular leafy green plants such as vegetables. To reiterate - it is important to understand that there is a myriad of . . .
Seasol seaweed extract. Prue and Andrew decided to build an Indy 23 Aquaponics system after completing one of our 4 day Aquaponics Future Farm courses. Well, without too much text we will show the photos. These were taken just two months after the system was planted out. The system is cycled although there are still some lingering pH issues that will settle down soon. The system is regularly dosed with Seasol seaweed extract as per what we recommend for new systems. The growth is remarkable from a new system that has 100 Jade Perch fingerlings and 25 x 1 year old Jade Perch in the second fish tank. Beneficial bacteria are establishing their presence in the system processing the ammonia from the fish waste. This together with the act . . .
A student from Egypt receives his Certificate on completion of the February 2014 Practical Aquaponics Commercial and Small Farm course. I have been most fortunate over the last few years in that I have travelled widely around the world and visited and consulted on many Aquaponics farms. It is always on my mind to identify and clarify the most common reasons some farm projects succeed and some fail. There is a multitude of reasons both ways, but here I am attempting to condense it down to the four most obvious. There are many, many successful farms. For the most part they are quietly going about their business, doing business, expanding business and making money. Bad news travels fast so it is not surprising that we hear the failure s . . .
Where is the Gold in Aquaponics? Where is the gold in Commercial Aquaponics? How will I make it pay? Most think that the profit is somehow connected to a clever plumbing layout or some other construction secret. While it is important to have a well designed installation an . . .
We have put together a short video clip to show the amazing difference between plants from the exact seedling batch, planted in different systems. One system is young and new and has not yet built up a good solid nutrient bank. Obviously the nutrient does not yet extend acr . . .
That is right, Practical Aquaponics in conjunction with Planet Stewards will conduct worlds best Aquaponics training and workshop right at Disney World Orlando September 16 thru 19 inclusive. If you want to learn about Aquaponics this is an event not to be missed. Murray . . .
