Aquaponics System Advantages


Nowadays hydroponics is regarded as the agriculture of
the future. It is a production system of major significance in
environmental, economic and social terms, and its flexibility
means that it can be applied in different conditions and for
diverse uses:
To produce food and other plants in the tropics
To produce food in arid areas or deserts
To produce food in temperate or cold weather
To produce food in places where water has a high salt content
To produce food in areas where agriculture is not possible due to poor soil
To producein places wherethesoil is highly contaminated by fungi or has high salination levels
To grow vegetables in the city
To produce vegetables where they are expensive and scarce
To produce flowers and ornamental plants
To carry out ecological research
To save water by ensuring that plants consume only the water they need





As an agricultural production system, Aquaponics has many advantages over soil-based methods, both from the technical and economic point of view. In the preceding section, we examined the many  practical advantages.
Now it is time to summarize and focus on some of the “technical” advantages of the method itself.  These include the following:
Plants have an ideal balance of air, water and nutrients
Uniform humidity
Excellent drainage
The possibility of growing plants more densely
Easy and quick correction of deficiencies or excesses in the provision of nutrients
Perfect control of pH
Less dependence on weather conditions
Higher yields per surface unit
Better quality
Earlier harvests
Possibility of growing the same plant species repeatedly because there is no soil depletion
Possibility of having several harvests a year
Crop uniformity
Lower water consumption
Reduced production costs
Greater productivity than in soil
Excellent conditions for starting a nursery
Possibility of using water with a high salt content
Greater cleanliness and hygiene
Since there is no soil, the elimination of certain tasks such as weeding
Simplicity and significant time saving when performing other tasks such as hilling the plant or pulling out defective plants
Possibility of enriching food products with vitamins or minerals
Significant reduction in environmental pollution and the risk of erosion due to a system that, if well managed, is totally environmentally friendly
Greater control of variables
No expenditures on agricultural machinery – no tractors,no plows or similar implements
Prompt return on investment
Significant reduction in labor

I have never been so thankful to find a site before in my life. I learned so much through your guide and video. I have also been very impressed with your customer service. I have sent you many emails asking questions and you answered me back quickly. Thank you"
