  1. FYI.. BioHome2 will be open to public from October 23, 2021. You will be invited separately. To read more on NASA's BioHome project - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BioHome BioSphere 2 project - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biosphere_2 TVP's Resource-based economy - www.thevenusproject.com #BioHome2
  2. On August 29, 2015, I said this. http://aquaponicsnation.com/forums/topic/9498-our-experiments-with-iavs/?do=findComment&comment=74097 Six years later, we are nearing its completion.
  3. The books that I am currently reading are these. 😊
  4. It was National Fish Farmers Day in India today. Here is a fish porn image. Can you guess what fish these are? PS: Pictured are my family - wife V1 and sons A1, A2, and A3.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. We created this video today. Please give it a look and feedback. Appreciate it.
  9. Vijayakumar Narayanan is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting. Topic: IAS Light Farming Date: October 7, 2020. Time: 06:00 to 06:45 PM IST Join Zoom Meeting https://zoom.us/j/94634166396... Meeting ID: 946 3416 6396 Passcode: YouCanGrow You are welcome!
  10. Here is a short intro video we made recently for our audience. I hope this covers a bit more. FYI. Feedback and questions, most welcome.
  11. Ande, I am adding a video next hoping that would answer your question.
  12. There was a typo. IAS = Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) + Hydroponics + Organic Agriculture
  13. 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.
  14. 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 You can grow microgreens, greens, herbs, vegetables, fruits, fowls and small livestock using IAS methods.
