Charlie Dare's insight:

 Here is the hope that they can make a user friendly tool~Interested to see if some urban myths perpetuated by grain fed Tilapia and tested bad fats in studies to be unhealthy compared to other species grown on a natural diet.Some omnivores(vegetarian small insects) like Silver /Jade Perch have the worlds highest Omega3 healthy oil.Because of the ease of growing a rubbish fish that survives in crowded poor quality water conditions some Aquaponics growers persist in ignoring/ questioning the" Study" denial of inconvenient facts.They would sell it as "healthy fish" even if it were grown in a sewage drain as some Chinese product might as well be, it is fed faeces(shit) from farm animals.A Southeast Asian practice not to blame just China ,polyculture poultry pens above ponds pigs etc is wide spread as are health problems.The race to the bottom is not the way...Value for money IS  quality assured. A fresh clean green product involves rethinking the best produce you can grow, like heritage tomatoes that taste nice.Excess can be dried stored in olive oil or air tight containers.

Charlie Dare's insight:
Solid state lighting has energized horticultural research into plant responses to light sources with different spectral power distributions, and there will surely be discoveries that improve our understanding of both photosynthesis and photomorphogenesis, as well as improvements in horticultural lighting design. In the meantime, the phytochrome photostationary state (PSS) metric is an example of existing knowledge that will likely prove useful in designing and specifying horticultural lighting systems.

Marine Microalgae: Food and Fuel of the Future

Marine Microalgae: Food and Fuel of the Future | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
Researchers from the Cornell Algal Biofuel Consortium have just promoted a new ingredient in the battle against global warming as well as food and energy insecurity: marine microalgae.
Charlie Dare's insight:
Scientists harvest freshly grown microalgae and remove most of the water then extract the lipids for the fuel. The remaining defatted biomass is a protein-rich and highly nutritious byproduct that can be added to feeds for domesticated farm animals, like chickens and pigs, or aquacultured animals, like salmon and shrimp. It could also, potentially, be consumed by humans.

This field is evovlving fast ~"Vertical agriculture is a modern way of cultivating crops where the space is less and growing of the crop is under the controlled environment. In the vertical farming, food is grown in vertical stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces or integrated in other structures and it is trending as a part of urban agriculture. The advantages of vertical farming is increased crop production, organic crops, energy production, protection from weather-related problems, conservation of resources and need of less area etc. with basic technological requirement of artificial lighting, climate control and thus boosting the Vertical Farming Market scope..."
