Aquaponics System Benefits

Site :

Hello friends this is something that I find very interesting and so I share it with you hopefully will be useful to you or maybe someone they know and want to. I particularly am going to try a breeding ground for tilapia when I get the results I will share them.

What is aquaponics system?

The Aquaponics system is an integrated aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil) system that mutually benefits both environments.
This process is associated with the planting of vegetables in containers with water. Hydroponic model involved the use of large amounts of chemicals and fertilizers to promote growth, so that the product was not 100% natural. However, the use of fertilizers and harmful chemicals are not required to configure at home an organic aquaponics system.

Fish waste is absorbed by vegetation that is used as a nutrient solution for plants growing, cultivating a wonderful condition to grow. The only external input to the system is the food for fish. Both systems complement in practice interdependence. So essentially, if you have fish happy and contented, you have an amazing system that will produce fresh food for you throughout the year.

The following video (in English) shows the farmer Will Allen of Growing Power aquaponics has taken to the extreme; they can produce 1 million pounds of food annually in just 3 acres, only through the use aquaponics.

What are the benefits of aquaponics system?

– Up to 10 times more organic plants. This is because the plants are put in place very close to the water. The roots of the plants are always in water rich in nutrients and no overcrowding.
– No more weeding. The system eliminates the need for weeding and removing debris. You get more freedom and enjoyment.
– No more pests in the soil. The need for pesticides is also removed, which makes it much easier for you to have amazing plants and fruit without toxic chemicals.
– No need to water more. The aquaponics system uses only 2% of water produced by the garden. Because the water circulation runs continuously and there is no absorption by soil. The roots of the plants are constantly submerged in water rich in nutrients and you never have to worry about watering your plants again. Helps save water and cost savings.
– Multiple sources of income. When testing this system will know the amount of plants that can occur and you may need and choose to share, donate or sell. And guess what?
– The plants grow twice as fast. Plant experts are surprised when they visit aquaponic farms, watching the plants grow quickly. For example, lettuce, lasting 60 days or more to mature, it only takes about 29 days with this system.
– Use up to 70% less energy than conventional gardening. Planting usually takes much effort and work in bending and keeps pace with growth and needs of each plant, but with aquaponics this does not happen.
