HDMR> Hydrodynamic Magnetic Resonance Use less water, and do more with Magnation's chemical-free HDMR technology. Magnation’s innovative chemical-free water softening treatment improves water productivity and promises maximum water utilization. By mimicking nature through principles of physics leveraging hydrodynamic magnetic resonance (HDMR), a water molecule's potential is achieved by invigorating electrons. This transforms the water structure into a softer, more vibrant water that offers the qualities and unique effectiveness of rain. Magnation's "rainlike water" mitigates all problems associated with hard water, and other water quality and soil health issues. Intelligent irrigation with HDMR by Magnation is a cornerstone for easy and sustainable practices.

One Community Sustainable Food Production Infrastructure One Community’s food infrastructure is just one component of our For The Highest Good of All approach to open source project-launch blueprinting strategy for self-replicating and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. Just as we will be showcasing a diversity of sustainable housing modes and alternative energy infrastructure, so too will we showcase a diversity of food production methodologies ranging from earth-regenerative permaculture farming to greenhouses to aquaponics farms. Even with traditional methods one person working full-time on food production can produce enough food to feed 30; with aquaponics that same person can produce enough food to feed 300. Our goal is to start building temporary greenhouses within the first week to supply food until our aquaponics farms and traditional growing methods are producing. Initially One Community will build three different sustainable food production models.

Recycling GRODAN Crop Rotation — Our most popular recycling method Local Farms benefit from crop rotation, and so can your home garden. Example: Grow a vegetable plant. Chop up the used slab/block into little 1/4” Grow-Cubes and remove loose root mass. Grow flowers in the chopped cubes. How to Build a Natural Swimming Pool Learn how to build a natural swimming pool in order to create a cooling summer retreat for your homestead. Whether you like to practice your dolphin dives or lounge away the day on a raft, swimming is one of summer's perfect pleasures. With a minimum of materials and without an arsenal of chemicals, you can build an idyllic water oasis right in your own back yard and thwart summertime's sultry dog days.

Bulk Coir & Individually Wrapped Coir Kunyit Turmeric or Kunyit in Malay is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family. This plant is use as herb in Malay medicine and cooking, leaves and rhizome are use to add flavour to dishes and cure sickness. I am trying out this plants, normally it doesn't grow in water logged soil. Maybe due to my pump OFF condition at night make this herb grow able. These Turmeric are on my home kit, in my main set up I dedicate I growbed for it.

Small-scale aquaponic food production. Integrated fish and plant farming Abstract: This technical paper begins by introducing the concept of aquaponics, including a brief history of its development and its place within the larger category of soil-less culture and modern agriculture. It discusses the main theoretical concepts of aquaponics, including the nitrogen cycle and the nitrification process, the role of bacteria, and the concept of balancing an aquaponic unit. Fisheries & Aquaculture - Aquaculture Aquaculture, probably the fastest growing food-producing sector, now accounts for nearly 50 percent of the world's food fish. The need to exchange reliable information on all related subjects is becoming a key issue for the responsible management of aquaculture.In order to provide easily-accessible and up-to-date information, the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department has developed specific pages on aquaculture where users can consult relevant material on aquaculture at international, regional and national level. The Fisheries and Aquaculture Department of FAO is pleased to announce the publication of seven technical documents on aquaculture which are of global relevance, namely the Global Synthesis of aquaculture development status and trends, andsix Regional Reviews of aquaculture development, status and trends. Fact Sheets The Fact Sheets cover the following information domains: Statistical information

Hydroponics Market by Equipment, Crop Type, Input Type The global hydroponics market is projected to reach USD 395.2 Million by 2020. In 2015, Europe is estimated to be the largest market for hydroponics. North America is projected to be the fastest-growing market for hydroponics during the forecast period. Greenhouses are places for growing plants in a controlled environment. It is an emerging application with high-growth potential, which uses several technologies such as HVAC systems, LED grow light, communication technology, irrigation systems, material handling, valves & pumps, and control systems. LED grow light and HVAC are the major shareholders in the hydroponics market.

Facts About Abalone Facts About Abalone Classification In the animal kingdom, abalone belong to the phylum Mollusca, a group which includes clams, scallops, sea slugs, octopuses and squid. Mollusks are world wide and predominantly marine. They have a soft body surrounded by a mantle, an anterior head and a large muscular foot. Mollusks are best known for their beautifully formed and colored calcareous shell secreted by the mantle.
