BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY-RAS OR AQUAPONICS

The idea is to have a Canadian firm build a pilot plant there, most likely in Khuzestan. Once the pilot plant is operating successfully, then the business would expand to many more such plants. Involvement on the Canadian side can range from supplying drawings to…

My water leaked out and I had to add regular water. Will my fish and plants die from the chlorine?

Commercial Greenhouses

From an organisation viewpoint, a greenhouse can be extremely profitable, as you can grow spring vegetables all year long. This is true even in the winter months when you need to normally rely on exports. Commercial greenhouses are much larger compared to the conventional greenhouse, often extending to several hundred feet. Like the common greenhouse, they can be made to fit any type of building and also zoning codes.

There are all grass on this market - from different colors such as yellow to light to dark shade. There's grass that doesn't need lots of water or sunlight, and there's grass that does. There's grass that can stand up to kids running over it, and there's grass that's a tad bit more delicate.

Most Organic Fertilizer s will not harm the soft roots of plants, unlike, synthetic fertilizers. Very best way to use an Organic Food…

MYTHS ABOUT HYDROPONICS

Myth 1: Hydroponics - a new technology

Even in ancient Egypt's pharaohs enjoyed the taste of fruits and vegetables grown using hydroponics. One of the seven wonders of the world, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, in fact, was just a hydroponic garden. In India, the plants are grown directly in coconut fiber, plant roots are immersed in water. If hydroponics - a new technology, it is…

new to aquaponics

ive done some research and watch a bunch of youtube videos on it. i am starting a farm. i was going to go with traditional farming but after looking into aquaponics, it seems stupid to do anything else. im on a very tight budget so im having to think outside the box so to speak. ive got 2 swimming pools coming. 1718 gal each. not sure if i should make both fish tanks or use one as a sump. looking for good ideas for grow beds as well. any help would be great. thanks

System Update

Well, I installed a 55 gal drum solid filter into my system last night.  Have a lot of green slime on the roots of my DWC plants.  I have decided to not attempt to heat the water or greenhouse this winter if possible.  I did however build a simple black poly solar collector.  Had it installed outside the greenhouse and was getting considerable heat collection from it. Have moved it inside the plastic to attempt to insulate it from the air temp outside but still collect IR heat.  Will let you…
