Sustainable fish food for aquaponics; Bioponic nutrient cycling

What makes bioponics uniquely different that aquaponics is that while it supports fish, it does not require fish to fertlize the beds. A balanced system is like an ecosystem, supporting all varieties of life but not depending on one element to support the operation. Continue reading

Comparing Field Crop Farming vs Closed Loop Bioponics

Efficiencies of bioponic approach vs. conventional farming WATER Conventional: Water used on soil lost to water table. Only small amount is absorbed by roots. Excessive use of water increases reliance on municipal water causing higher sodium and chloride salt buildup, impedes plant growth. Bioponics: Uses 90% less water than conventional irrigation. Water used is recaptured … Continue reading

Algae as a fish food and pH modifier.

Algae creates alkalinity in the water. In fact, when we take a side stream of aquaponic water to our cells of aquaponics the pH rises up to range of 9-10 very quickly. We also raise algae with human urine, but if using as aquaponic fish food and ultimately for plants, care must be taken that … Continue reading

Peeponics in Georgia, Ecosan Urine Fertilizer in India, Urine Therapy Elsewhere

From around the world we are learning more and more how others are creating their own models of sustainability. Hydroponics would benefit tremendously to have a homemade source of fertlizer. The notion of organic can actually be elevated to a second generation, requiring that food consumed by the source of the urine was also organic. … Continue reading

Urine as Mineral Fertilizer Substitute

Urine in crop production proves key to sustainability in developing countries.  In a comprehensive landmark study the Stockholm Environment Institute has defined the characteristics, economic value, application strategies and handling protocols for the use of urine in crop production. Their evidence is based on research and practical experiences in India, Africa, Europe and Central America. … Continue reading

Bio Juice? What’s up at the U of Hawaii Aquaponics?

This educator is making an excellent point. This at the Univ of Hawaii A&A Conference is iterated nicely. It mirrors what we’ve been saying at Bioponica. Aquaponics is just the tip of the iceberg, an I’m not talking about lettuce, but I am, really I am. Aquaponics is suitable for green leafy plants and light … Continue reading

Urine composition for determining benefits as fertilizer alternative.

Here is an overview of what minerals and elements are found in human urine. This is useful for determining urine requirements for volumes of water base total plants and plant needs. Algosolar will soon post a calculator to help calculate ratios. Nearly all of these substances are utilized by all other living species, in one … Continue reading
