Nutrient Imbalance

Nate Storey has done it again!

Figuring out nutrient imbalance is in my opinion the most difficult thing about aquaponics.  Nate really lays it out in an easy to understand method for us to determine a course of action when our plants begin to look a bit peeked. I would post the link  to the KEY he has developed for diagnosing these problems right here, but I feel that you should go to Nate's site and find his offer.   When asked to register just do it.  You will be pleasantly surprised.

  1. Hey Mr. Campbell, my name is Jeffrey Ernenwein. I was wondering if I could ask you a couple questions on the subject of how aquaponic production relates to sustainability. This is for a class at CSU Chico that requires an interview with a local person involved with the chosen topic.

    1. My e-mail is bobcampbell530@gmail.com. I'd like to give you a phone call. I'd also be happy to give you a tour of my gardens. I'm experimenting with recirculating bio nutrients as well as hydroponics. My feelings are that aquaponics can be sustainable if it's done correctly, but most people take the easy path and feed commercial fish food which is not designed for aquaponics and comes with an adverse ecological impact.
