Aquaponics – One of the most cost-effective organic food production technologies.
Aquaponics farming comprises the uniqueness of natural balance, between Plants, Fish and Bacteria. Technology requires NO chemical input.
Aquaponics is applicable to literally any type of soil and areas from rooftops and backyards to commercial scale greenhouses.
In 2014 Green Age NGO has started the project of aquaponics farming in Armavir region of Armenia, due the support of Norwegian Embassy. Being the first to give life to an Aquaponic Garden in Armenia.
Products grown in an aquaponic environment are widely accepted in European market, though the practice doesn’t exist in the whole Caucasus region. Considering the fact that Armenia is a region of diverse landscapes and climatic variations, the successful accomplishment of the first aquaponic farm model may greatly affect the agricultural-economical development of Armenia, as a great percentage of the total land areas are not classified as usable for agricultural purposes.
The aim of project is the facilitation of the land cultivation (soil based agriculture) in the regions not appropriate for rich watering and extensive harvest. The project will fully demonstrate the farmers how they can increase profit generation through agriculture in a limited land and water conditions.
Aquapoinics is an innovative and environmentally friendly food production system, combining the crop and fish production: raising and production of aquaculture and the hydroponic cultivation of agricultural plants. The symbiotical nature of plant cultivation and fish growing in a self-sustainable recirculating ecosystem based on a natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste to plant nutrients is completely environmentally friendly organic food-growing method that harnesses the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the need to discard any water or filtrate, or add any chemical fertilizers.
Current web resource is here to help the potential aquaponic farmers for gaining the required knowledge and expertise through www.aquaponics.am. Here you can find most updated information about the guidelines for aquaponic farming, success stories pitfalls and methods. Feel free to contact us for any type of advisory.
