Bioponica Presentation: Georgia Organics Conference Feb 24-25

Come join us for the Georgia Organics Conference in Columbus Georgia this weekend. We’re honored to be sharing the bill with the likes of George Allen from Growing Power who will be the Keynote speaker. The Bioponica workshop will be held on Saturday. We’ll discuss the Food Plant and how to build a simple anaerobic … Continue reading

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

Growing Microgreens, Day 10

This is an experiment in raising microgreens without dirt, chemicals or synthetic media. The Bioponica™ bed itself is optimized for 10″ standard sized trays. The water levels are set to fill to the top of the rocks and can be adjusted with drain valve to any level. With a bioponic method it is possible to … Continue reading

Microgreens Experiment; Day 2 Burlap and Fiberglass Mesh

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

Smart invention helps growers save money on seeds. A home made vacuum seeder. For in ground or bioponics.

Any grow operation will benefit from home made tools that reduce unnecessary labor. Spend more time doing higher value projects and make seeding simple by building a vacuum seeder from vacuum cleaner and easily aquired materials. If a similar contraption were built for seeding microgreens, space use could be optimized, considerably saving on the cost … 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
