Hey Matt! You can find ZipGrow towers in Australia right now at http://growpacked.com/site/shop. 1 tsp per 1000L isn’t too much. You’re smart to bring it up slowly! We would love to see photos of your ZipGrows in action when you’re all setup, Matt.
Charlie Dare's insight:
ZipGrow towers just another space saving innovation .New innocations or variations are always around the corner in this great new industry .It pays to experiment as different climates are more suited to different methods and it all depends on your markets or how much your school, family and or friends can consume .

Nate replies to viewrs questions viewers Questions and you can subscribe to online discussion topic on 3 major considerations you need to plan for when starting a commercial farm .." You can apply phosphorus foliarly, and it can help, but whether it's effective or not really depends on the crop and when you spray it. If you do apply it foliarly, I would do so when the plant begins to flower for maximum uptake, use and production."

Charlie Dare's insight:

If properly applied, biofloc technology can increase production at a family farm by seven fold, said Avnimelech. But universities that teach aquaculture need to do a better job of incorporating biofloc technology into the curriculum. What’s being taught now at many universities “is not enough,”

Charlie Dare's insight:

Apart from cyclones the comment should also be born in mind ! .

[ It is certainly good to go green concept but certain practical problem are required to be addressed.Few of them are
1) Falling of leaves especially in autumn will be a round the year
process and may cause the dirt pollution to nearby buildings.This may also create heartburn situation in the neighborhood.

2)Vision which is one of the criteria to go for high rise will be
severely affected.

3)Maintenance of the vegetation viz dressing of vegetation will be a
challenging task.

4)Structural damage by roots to the building.

5)Maintenance works especially plumbing,sanitary and coloring will be a daunting task ]

Our Fodder Set Up Pic heavy - one week in! - Homesteading Today

Our Fodder Set Up Pic heavy - one week in! - Homesteading Today | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
Hi all! First, I would like to ask that my thread not become a debate about growing fodder.
Charlie Dare's insight:
I have seen large commercial moduals for sale in Australia costing $30,000 depending on size.I havnt been able to inspect one in my state of South Australia as they are from a NE State Queensland. The sprouted grain is more nutritious and this small scale model could be upscaled I think.Sheep and cattle are our main animals fed.The external link to homesteading doesnt work for me (page not found) but the basic design is good here for growing fodder ~ I also see wheat-grass in health shops , the principle is the same except they trim it off with scissors and place in blender for a drink.

Jack Ng claims his rotating vertical farming system could increase Singapore's locally grown produce by a factor of seven.
Charlie Dare's insight:

The statement is not quite true in this article as an English professional salad grower I think invented the water wheel concept.....                        [ Inside, hundreds of 30-foot tall aluminum A-frames structures are stacked to the ceiling with tiers of lettuce and Chinese cabbage arranged in a circle, each rotating like a Ferris wheel. It’s a technology Ng invented, and it’s built around what he calls his “water wheel.” Basically the system’s hydraulic engine, the water wheel is a turbine that’s spun by water flowing down through a pipe from a tank near the top of each A-frame.]

The grower I refer to is Graham Dunling, he invented a similar water wheel system~ He also is responsible for another system in Hong Kong ~
