The School of Aquaponics
good lord i hope you dont teach.
I know I am 1 year late in throwing in my two sense but just for future comment readers what the Aquaponics God says about DNA structure and how it pertains to a set time when plants are ready to harvest is true. However! He said no, plants grown in soil and aquaponic systems are the same in time lapse to maturity is not all true. The easier the plant has access to all the nutrients and micronutrients plays a huge roll. Aquaponic systems allow the plant to grow at the correct speed where as soil can slow down the speed at which the plants will be mature and ready to harvest. So the answer to the original question is Yes aquaponic systems help plants grow faster than soil but not always it all depends on you and how hard you work to make sure your plants are getting everything they need.
Do aquaponic systems provide the same (and same amount) of nutrients to the plants as soil based grow methods without any additives or supplements?
I only use aquaponic just for pond filter subtitution purposes. I always go soil as a priority because there are more complex organism that live in the soil like worms. These small and micro organism will create more complex ecosystem to support plant growth.
The pro-aquaponic people often only talks about nitrogen cycle. Nitrogen is just one of the macronutrient . There's other macro and even micronutrient that plants need and can be obtained abudantly through composting many type of organic matter from kitchen scraps like egg shells, banana peels, rotten fruit, etc.
6 videos in, and "toodles" still cracks me up every time.
I agree 100% that plants grow as they're permitted by their genetic legacy and that in aquaponics & hydroponics systems, since as you said we can ensure the conditions for each plant are as good as possible, we can ensure they grow as fast as they can… but shouldn't that imply that if we do our work they're VERY likely going to grow better/faster than a plant growingin soil, where we can only hope to be lucky? 🙂
That said, great series of videos, I really like your on-the-point and calculation-included way of explaining! 👍
Great video ! Simple and clear
GMOs dangers discussion is another topic. We will have the final answer in twenty years 🙂
So far I am enjoying the school of aquaponics but I must tell you as far as GMO's are concerned they certainly have not been tested nearly enough to hold heartedly state that they are safe the mere point that commercial companies are fighting to keep it from being labeled as GMO should make one stop and think and do not forget the fact that Monsanto the largest GMO developer in the world will not allow it to be tested should also make you think now as far as the so-called overpopulation of the Earth nothing could be further from the truth the calculations that are normally used are quite biased and based on how many acres of property many people already own The calculations are certainly highly biased according to scientists this planet could very easily contain over 21 billion people with more than food to eat and land to live on there is only one thing that prevents this from occurring and that is human greed. Millions of tons of food rot in warehouses and on docs all around the world due to political corruption and human greed that my friend is Basic truth.
Great videos, very informative and straight forward. Thanks for sharing the knowledge.
so are you saying gmos are good or necessary?
If it's such a optimal practice why is it not the standard method for growing?
