World Food Crisis brings different organisations and many countries around the world to seek new and sustainable food production methods as part of the solution to the crisis.
Hydroponics Aquaponics systems and have lots of benefits for developing countries, for example:
- Growing food without the need of fertile soil
- Saving water & fertiliser saving
- Vegetable and green plants with high nutritional value
- Cultivation of fish is used as a source of high quality protein per person
These advantages make the advanced agricultural methods and Aquaponics Hydroponics attractive tools, especially in recent years, particularly the increase in urban environments (Urban farming). However, this increase in Aquaponics and Hydroponics is complex and requires prior knowledge and equipment, and may not be available in developing countries, making the task of setting up the system more complicated, however certainly possible.
When we approach the project in developing countries we work in accordance with emphasis on:
- Operating system – keeping it simple technically
- Sustainable – Would you be able to get the parts of the system in local markets if there is a problem
- The nature of the local population – large rural systems or small home systems
- Network detached work – relying on sources of alternative energy and fertiliser such as bio-gas systems and solar ?
Analysis of all the above and more allows us to make projects successful and sustainable without professionals around the towers.
Since 2014 our team has planned and built dozens and Hydroponics Aquaponics systems, While working on these projects we were involved with several large organisations.
