Carbon Neutral and Pesticide-Free Food Production
In the basic PFAS without supplemental lights, a 100-watt solar setup with MPPT and deep cycle battery will run a medium (up to 200 sg. ft.) Portable Farm. The basic solar-electrical system means the water will circulate, the air pumps will run continuously, and the heaters will keep the water at a reasonable temperature for the fish in the tank. You will need to size the solar much larger if you use grow lights of any kind.
Learn to Build A Grow Table for an Aquaponics System
The maximum comfortable distance for a person to reach across at counter-height is a width of 36 inches (1m), so a grow tray with only one side exposed can only be 36 inches wide. For a grow tray with both sides facing an aisle the maximum width can be six feet (1.85m). The aisles need to be a minimum of 30 inches (.76m) for comfort and safety The grow trays are restricted to 200 sq ft due for ease of working with aisles and carrying harvested vegetables out to the building.

It only takes a few days to learn the areas related to assembling an aquaponics system so you can build your own Portable Farms® Aquaponics System! Aquaponics is easier and more productive than organic gardening or traditional agriculture and uses 95% less water. Portable Farms® Aquaponics Systems also use less electricity and less labor than any other aquaponics system in the world.
Aquaponics Uses 90 to 95% LESS WATER than Traditional Agriculture.
As global warming, the price of gas, drought conditions and desertification continue to impact agriculture, the world is aggressively looking for new ways to grow food locally, using less water than is required by traditional agricultural methods.
SUMMER IS COMING - Install your Shade Cloth Above Your Grow Tables TODAY
Plants can only utilize approximately 70% of direct sunlight. On the inside of a greenhouse, the temperature will rise very quickly as the sun climbs up into the sky. All greenhouses exhibit this rapid rise in temperature as the angle of the sun decreases. Even in very cold climates, the sun, on a clear day, can drive the temperatures from below freezing to the mid-60’s (15 to 20°C) very quickly. It most greenhouses, the problem is what to do with the heat and how to best utilize it for the…
Basil - A High-Value Crop for Aquaponics
Basil is enjoyed as a fresh-leaf herb on meats and vegetables, prepared in sauces such as pesto, or dried and used in many recipes in cultures throughout the world. Basil grows well in aquaponics systems because of the ideal growing conditions created with warm water and ample sunlight.
