It is true! The best way to yield higher plant growth with healthier plants is to adopt the process of aquaponics. This is an integrated system that aims at creating a perfect balance between the organisms and their environment to produce nutrients. In simple words, aquaponics is the process of combing hydroponics and aquaculture together in the same environment and eliminating the process of using soil. These plants are therefore purely developed within water and

Aquaponics? I’ve got to try this! Who knew that the wonderful combination of aquaculture and hydroponics could produce something so genius? Aquaculture, a process of raising fish and hydroponics, the process of growing plants without the use of soil have attained much popularity and relatively more beneficial outcomes. Apart from the amazing fact that this process can be carried out anywhere from your garden to fish tanks to ponds, aquaponics is quiet scalable i.e.; it

Hydroponics is the scientific way of farming where water plays a vital role to grow the plants. This is the soil-less technique of cultivating plants. Most of the people find the soil as the nutrient supplier to the plant but this is the wrong theory of plantation or farming. It is not the soil but roots that transmit the valuable nutrients to plant to grow. In fact, the hydroponics plants are more healthy and nutritious

Hydroponics is the simple method of growing plants without the use of soil. Plants are grown with their roots suspended directly into the water with no medium. In this system, the plants are grown in an inert medium and a perfectly balanced nutrient solution is provided to them which is delivered to the roots in a highly soluble form. It takes less effort as opposed to the soil which has to search nutrients and then

Abu Dhabi: Millions of dollars’ worth environmental services provided by mangroves to the UAE people once again highlights the fact that their value goes beyond aesthetic beauty, a study presented on Tuesday said. A hectare mangrove offers ecosystem services valued at $193,845 (Dh71,1973) a year without including carbon sequestration services, according to the study. Mangroves offer a natural carbon sequestration process, by which carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere, mitigating the global warming. Umm
