Management of the Aquaponic Systems

Aquaponics is the integration of recirculating aquaculture and hydroponics in one production system. Although the production of fish and vegetables is the most visible output of aquaponic units, it is essential to understand that aquaponics is the management of a complete ecosystem that includes three major groups of organisms: fish, plants and bacteria. This document provides recommendations on how to keep a balanced system through the proper management of these three organisms. It also lists all the important management phases from starting a unit to production management over an entire growing season.

Plant Propagation in Organic Agriculture

The choice of high quality organic seed and plant propagation material of suitable varieties is an important key to successful organic farming, allowing for improved yield and product quality, for crop resilience, considerate use of non-renewable resources and for increased genetic and species diversity. This practices describes the principles of plant propagation in organic farming, as well as the importance of the use of traditional varieties and their conservation.

Soil Cultivation and Tillage in Organic Agriculture

Soil cultivation includes all mechanical measures to loosen, turn or mix the soil, such as ploughing, tilling, digging, hoeing, harrowing etc. Careful soil cultivation can improve the soil‘s capacity to retain water, its aeration, capacity of infiltration, warming up, evaporation etc. But soil cultivation can also harm the soil fertility as it accelerates erosion and the decomposition of humus. There is not one right way to cultivate the soil, but a range of options. Depending on the cropping system and the soil type, appropriate soil cultivation patterns must be developed.
