Aquaponics involve the use of fishes to provide nutrients for crops that you are growing.
The process involves conversion of fish waste materials into nutrients that are in a form that is suitable for plant update.
While it can be easy to set up an aquaponics system at home or commercially, it takes very skillsful and knowledgable grower with good experience to balance the ecosystem in the fish tank. Balance of fish to crops ratio as well as controlling a good balance microorganism sometimes is not easy to achieve by a first time grower. That is why it is quite common to see growers to attempt to try their own and losing their first batch of fishes and/or crops within weeks.
That is why we encourage growers who are interested to grow aquaponics to start on a managable scale at home first.
We designed a course specially for Home Growers in Singapore. Home Growers in Singapore usually stay in HDB, Apartments and Condomimium or Landed Property.
We will teach 4 different aquaponics systems that you can set up at home to grow your own leafy vegetables produce.
