Science in the UC Davis Aquaponic Greenhouse

One of the goals of our Aquaponic farm is to conduct experimentation at commercial scales using commercial methodology. Here, Brandon and Luisa are taking data on basil grown in a flood and drain system. One thing that is amazing about hydroponic plant production is that there are a number of solutions and strategies that can be employed by farmers to produce an exceptional product.  Perhaps some more labor and energy efficient, but many different modalities are available that enable a farmer to produce within the constraints of their environment, operational space and commercial product.

Sign up and follow our blog.  In the coming months you may be surprised by the wide assortment of vegetables and herbs grown using hydroponic methods using aquaculture water as  the primary nutrient source.
