Agriculture Grants for Aquaponics – Aquaponics is a growing technique that combines a system where fish and plants are grown together. It is one of the hydroponic techniques where the fertilizer or the food for the plants is retrieved from the fish waste. On the other hand, the plant and its media filter and clean the water so that the fish get fresh water.
One of the major problems in aquaponics farming is the cost. If you are planning to get your primary income from this business you have to have at least an acre of land, along with other equipment cost. To be frank, even the DIY project of a business-scale aquaponics can cost about $15,000 to $18,000. The professional setup cost for aquaponics using the same area is even higher, with more than $80,000 for such system.
