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

The Food Plant: Features of closed-loop process

By mimicking the way ponds naturally acquire fertility to feed fish and nourish plants throught nutrient cycling it is possible to apply this science to modern agriculture to create a more sustainable farming method. With the Bioponica™ Food Plant™ system, efficiencies are particularly important as the cost of attaining off site  sources of fertilizers and … Continue reading

Fish farming; What is sustainable?

A collective concern with aquaculture is how to raise fish sustainably and still maintain a quality that matches wild caught. Until now, fish farmers have chosen to raise fish based on market demand and potential profit. Improvement of the art has taught us to selectively breed genetic characteristics for enhanced reproduction, mimic wild settings while … 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
