Hydroclimaponics Edit creates micro climate around plant, instead of keeping entire greenhouse at set temperature, using less energy.

Aquaponics Edit

Aerobic Biological Reactors(ABR's) are a key component in the water recycling process of an Aquaponics production system.They provide for the biological conversion of ammonia. This results in an ideal growing medium for Lemna minor which becomes fish food. Lemna is one of natures smallest flowering plants and contains 35-40% crude protein with a high concentrations of essential amino acids, folic acid, minerals and beta carotene pigments that provide a balanced and nutritional diet.

ILA member, Freddie Hebert is CEO of Louisiana Biofuel. He is currently funding a duckweed production to ethanol plant. The system uses a novel approach to handling distiller’s grains. Dry ingredients, (rice chaff, corn meal, soybean meal, molasses, minerals and calcium) will be added to the wet ethanol co-product to dilute the moisture content. The dry matter is then run through a pellet extruder and is machine packed in 50 pound bags for transport and sale. This process eliminates the need for a dryer and the same process produces a complete animal feed, not a supplement. Visit to learn more. - 4.5kg urea(nitrogen) produces 1000kg of green feed.

links Edit Ebb&Flo (or Flood & Drain) gardens have been the mainstay of the hydroponics industry for many years due to their low cost, ease of maintenance and effectiveness. Until now, advances in methods of maximizing the productivity of ebb & flow gardens has been limited to "solving" on of their largest inherent flaws, evaporative loss & excessive growing media requirements. Evaporative losses are caused by the large surface area of these tables that are exposed to open air and intense lighting during the daylight cycle. Until now, evaporative losses have contributed to nutrient concentration drifts and pH fluctuations. To reduce this problem, many manufacturers have created covers for their tables which help prevent evaporative loss and also block out light which stops algae growth from negatively impacting root growth. Tray covers also help to create a microclimate with higher humidity in the root zone which also assists overall root health. The other challenge with straight ebb & flo tables is that the plants require a large amount of growing media, be it rockwool cubes, slabs or more recently, coir and soilless mixes in containers. In many instances, this media needs to be replaced after each production run which adds to the cost and complexity of operation. fogger aeroponics , FOGPONICS ,, strawberry towers NFT, raft , fishes in pond aquaponics.
