Bioponics is arguably the most sustainable method of soilless farming.
The Biogarden is designed to grow plants in 10′ backyard or school sized modules up to 20′ and 40′ length commercial sized soilless grow systems. The tables come with or without tanks below and may be stacked vertically to for more optimal use of space.
What is ‘bioponics’?
As pioneers of bioponics, we believe that 3 key features define bioponics. Tow of the three conditions distinguish it from hydroponics and aquaponics:
- It is soilless, utilizing one or more of the following techniques media beds, NFT, deep water culture with or without air layer technique,
- Always 100% organic, No chemical fertilizers. No manufactured fish feeds containing grains and or fish meal.
- Fish are optional. Herbivore fish such as tilapia and craw fish do particularly well in bioponic systems, though they are treated more like pond fish, deriving nutrients from biomass teas and aquatic plants such as algae and duckweed. Raising fish is an option but dependency on fish waste is a aquaponics method, not bioponics. Instead, the use of fertilizer teas or otherwise forms of organic nutrients.
Bioponics is a sustainable farming alternative to aquaponics, hydroponics and in-ground growing.
To optimize the process of organic hydroponics, aka bioponics, we utilize natural biomass derived nutrients, and ruggedly designed Biogarden grow beds. With a healthy biological ecosystem, plant growth is maximized; labor and overhead are minimized.
When operating purely biological soilless environment the use of pH testing, EC or TDS meter, becomes unnecessary. Without soil to manage or a need for composting, the process of bioponics in the Biogarden is virtually self automated with pumps, timers, Trickle Valves and air layer aeration techniques. All we do is add liquid nutrients and rainwater as needed.
Bioponics explained in 10 minutes:
The Biogarden as a ‘NPK Brewery.’
The Biogarden as a NPK Brewery extracts nutrients through vortex aeration and biofiltration.
Each of the Biogarden modules can be operated as either a grow system or a liquid fertilizer making unit. The Biogarden as and NPK Brewery can be utilized to rapidly convert dry biomass blends into a liquid fertilizer that feeds plant and microbes with a perfect balance of nutrients. Sustainable farming is more attainable with this low labor low cost fertilization process. Eliminates the effort of composting and the need for purchasing manufactured fertilizers and make your own organic liquid fertilizer.
The Biogarden for multi-technique soilless plant growth.
The Biogarden® is a modular, commercial-sized, soil-less growing system for raising plants and fish.
The Biogarden provides sustainable farming by offering a more durable solution for hydroponics, aquaponics and bioponics growers. The rugged, weather resistant, modifiable, transportable agriculture grow unit is adaptable to indoor and outdoor farm settings. When growing long cycle deep rooted plants, aggregate is used in the beds. With lettuces, basil, microgreens and wheatgrass grwoing is supported by deep water raft culture within the Biogarden. These waist height, and vertically stacked grow beds reduce labor and support growing organic produce as well as medical marijuana.
Bioponica Biomass Blends
Primordial Soup are dry blends of biomass for making organic liquid fertilizer, within the Biogarden.
On-site fertilizer from biomass sources reduces carbon footprint and improves plant nutrition by feeding microbes an organic diet. When growing with Biogarden using aggregate or air layer technique, there is no need for chemical fertilizers. Nor is there ever need to discard water or aggregate beds. Dry Primordial Soup blends are derived from alfalfa, peas, coffee grounds, wood ash, porcine bone meal, spent brewers grains and etc.
