Hydroponics vs. Aquaponics: The Pros And Cons of Two Soilless Farming Methods

By completely eliminating soil as a growing medium for plants, and by avoiding wastage of water into the ground, these intensive methods make localized food production sustainable and profitable, in spite of scarcity of water and fertile land. Hydroponics Hydroponics is a time-tested method widely used for growing tomatoes and lettuce in greenhouses. Hydroponics typically uses only 20 percent of the water required for traditional cultivation. Aquaponics Aquaponics is a complex cultural method that evolved as an effective solution for the recycling of the waste generated in aquaculture.

The main input in an aquaponic system is fish food besides the power for the running of the electric pumps that recirculate the water round the clock.

Issue 71: Simplified Hydroponics in Ecuador

(M.Sc.) ,Ivonne Cajamarca Ing.Agr. ,Juan Erazo Ing, Tamara Aucatoma,Lic. ,& Juan Izquierdo,Ph.D. Ecuador is located in the north-west of South America.It is a country of overwhelming beauty,but one that faces serious socio-economic limitations. In 1996, 27% of its urban population had their basic needs unfulfilled, and 34% of poor urban homes were unable to cover the cost of basic family needs. The diet of poor people in Ecuador consists basically of rice, potatoes yucca, bread, margarine, a very low proportion of protein, and almost no fruit or vegetables.

The project was launched in May 2000 and was jointly operated by the FAO and the National Institute for the Child and the Family (INNFA). Comment faire un système One Dollar arrosage des plantes / Maison et jardin. Hydroponie. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Nicaragua - La culture hydroponique

La culture hydroponique, qui est une culture hors-sol réalisée à l'aide d'un peu d'eau, d'une solution nutritive bon marché et d'une installation facilement réalisable avec des matériaux de récupération, mérite d'être mieux connue et pratiquée. Les plantations sans terre ont contribué à transformer la vie de personnes pauvres en milieu urbain et constituent pour beaucoup une alternative économique et humaine.

A parallel summit of Cities and Local Authorities was convened with the support of ICLEI. Participants adopted the Hyderabad Declaration on Subnational Governments, Cities and other Local Authorities for Biodiversity, which supports the work of cities to achieve the Global Strategy for Biodiversity and calls for greater coordination between levels of government (more info here).

Practical Action - Floating gardens. Adapting to climate change in Bangladesh Much of the land in the Gaibandha district of Bangladesh is covered by water during the monsoon season, making it impossible to grow crops.

Practical Action - Floating gardens

Practical Action has developed a technology to allow farmers to grow food on flooded land. A floating garden is built using water hyacinth, which is collected to construct a floating raft. This is covered with soil and cow dung, in which vegetables can be planted. A new raft needs to be built every year, but the old one can be used as fertiliser during the dry season. The rafts, eight metres long and one metre wide, are made from hyacinth which is available for free locally. The floating gardens provide food for people even during the annual monga (period of food shortages) and they can also provide an alternative source of income through sale of any surplus in the market.

The floating vegetable gardens are also created in ponds, canals and other water sources. Further information no comments. Hydro redux - Cheap DIY Bucket Hydroponic System.
