Dear friends,

Greetings!  I hope you are staying healthy. 

Long story short, so much has changed in what have been doing.  IAVS has been substantially modified and improved.  We call it IAS now, Integrated Aquaponics System! IAS - the art and science of growing more food organically, with much less water and energy.

You can grow fish, microgreens, greens, herbs, vegetables, fruits, fowls and small livestock using IAS methods.

Here is a very brief video for you to have a look.  Based on your response, I will elaborate.

Kind regards, vkn

It does not really matter how you want to grow more food.  Think beyond sand beds.  Our children and grand children do not want greenhouse-gas emissions, poverty, and biodiversity loss. Let us do our bit whatever we can. Do something awesome!
IAS = Aquaponics + Hydroponics + Organic Agriculture

Q: How to feed 1000 people year round?

Here is a typical Integrated Aquaponics System (IAS) project suitable for 200 families or to feed approx 1000 people year round.

We have done similar projects. This vision would need a total build area of one to two acres. This is what we are currently working on.

There was a typo. IAS = Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) + Hydroponics + Organic Agriculture

Hi again VKN

I'w been reading thru your Facebook page trying to figure out what's happening on your front regarding IAVS developments.

Aside from the name change from IAVS to IAS what's new ?

IAS = Future of Food!
Integrated Aquaponics Systems is the most productive, resilient and sustainable food production system yet devised!

Instead of the acronym "IAS", what else we could call it?

Eco-integrated Agriculture
(Managed) Ecosystem Agriculture
Aqua-integrated Horticulture
Aqua-Hort
Integrated Horticulture
Integrated Aquaculture
Unified Nutrition Provisioning
BioLOGIC Agrology
Biotecture
Ecotecture
Hortitecture
Holistic Horticulture
Holistic Agrology
Holistic gardening
Holistic hunger management
Holistic hunger mitigation
Whole Earth Gardening
Whole Earth Provisioning
Whole World Sufficiency

Get educated on the art of growing food. The global online crash course on Integrated Aquaponics Systems (IAS) is scheduled on Sundays, 10-11 AM. The COVID discount offer of over 60% ends after this Sunday, April, 26, 2020. Please pass it on to your tribe. Appreciate it.

Bildet kan inneholde: tekst som sier 'Question: What is IAS? "IAS" is an acronym we at NARDC coined for Integrated Aquaponics Systems Instead of "IAS", what else?'
Quote end.
 
I can see you are running online training classes on IAS 👍 
And understand from your Flatland pic.abovee2289d14-3767-4767-9f2e-f0f5f69b95c4_7%2  that you have adopted Wageningen University research on the Food System Vision 2050 'Re-rooting the Dutch food system: from more to better'
 
cheers

Science and engineering, combined, working on central themes - biodiversity, global warming, food security.
Have a look at the ongoing excellent investigations at Jena Experiments in Leipzig University, Germany. Other agricultural universities are 40 to 100 years behind.

It looks like nothing has changed in VKN's world.  He only shares that which he hopes will attract revenue....and little to nothing that is of actual help.

Despite lengthy attempts to bring some reality to his thinking, VKN is determined to do things his way.

If he want to peddle his wares on APN, he needs to consider how he'll compensate us for the use of our platform.  It's not about money...it's about sharing.

Since he is wedded to the idea that 'his' work has value (and that people should be prepared to pay for it), he should be comfortable with us demanding the same.

FYI.. NARDC is at 9 years old today on June 5. We want to say a big thank YOU for all your support.
 
I have some good news to share with you as well. We have begun consulting The World's Largest Integrated Aquaponics System (IAS) facility which is coming soon in Chennai, India. The Exotic IAS will be a high-tech CEA-GH facility.  The works began yesterday.  The total build area is over 100,000 square feet (8000+ m2). Questions welcome.

FYI.. As briefly mentioned above, the world's second largest aquaponics system in 2021, "Exotic IAS Farm," is coming soon in Chennai, India.
Works are now in full swing.  We hope this project will inspire more farmers to change the face of agriculture.  Here is a comparison with the world's largest aquaponics system.  Questions welcome.
