10 reasons, why an aquaponic farm is chaning the agriculture
(and why you should be part of it)
Aquaponics that combines hydroponics with aquaculture have plenty of reasons why it is chaning the traditional agriculture but we selected the TOP 10 reasons for you!
#1 Breed fish and grow vegetables
Two in one. That is an aquaponic farm. You grow vegetables and breed fish. Then you can sell vegetables and fish meat, or utilize them yourself.
#2 Lower risk of predators and pests
You know how pests can destroy crops grown on field. But most pests are bound to soil. An aquaponic farm reduces risks of losing or damaging plants. Fish aren’t threatened by predators like in open water, so the numbers are stable.
#3 Grow rate will surprise you
Plants in aquaponics grow up to five times faster than in soil. Your investment into an aquaponic farm will return really quickly.
#4 You’ll get excellent taste
Vegetables from an aquaponic farm are naturally delicious and juicy. Fish are without smell, which is typical for breeding in the ponds. Your clients will appreciate this and will be going back for more.
#5 Water savings
An aquaponic farm saves water. You’ll use up to 90 percent less water than with classical way of growing plants. There is no need to water the plants. You just have to refill water which vapors out or is consumed by plants.
#6 You’ll become supplier for the whole year
You’ll produce fresh fish and vegetables for all 365 days in a year. Also you aren’t dependent on seasons.
#7 Contributing to a healthy lifestyle
Whether you sell your products or consume them yourself, you are contributing to healthier lifestyle of your customers.
#8 You create diversity
An aquaponic farm can grow many kinds of fruit and vegetables: e.g. strawberry, tomatoes, peppers, herbs and spices.
#9 Minimal space requirements
In only a few tanks you can breed as many fish as in a big pond and as many crops as in a small field, without the need of fertile soil called “chernozem”.
Demand for fresh vegetables and fish meat is rising. Sell meat, vegetables, herbs and spices. Profit and build your own successful business.
