Are you interested in growing food in your yard? Aquaponics/hydroponics is easy, fun, and productive:
- 6 to 10 times the harvest compared to traditional gardening methods
- 95% fewer pests
- 90% less water, fertilizer, and labor
Despite our shrinking water supplies, you can still grow fish and vegetable food crops. Aquaponics/hydroponics uses about 1 gallon of water to grow a head of lettuce in about 3 weeks. Conventional growing takes 10-30 gallons, and up to 6 weeks to produce the same lettuce. AgPals will explain the basics of this bio-integrated system that links recirculating aquaculture with hydroponic vegetable, flower, and/or herb.
