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.
