Today I was out and about, looking around Battambang, and what was I to stumble across, a new fully setup aquaponic's study venture. I was on the other side of the fence! I managed to catch the attention of the students, and express my knowledge and interest.
Then I was told to meet one of them at the main gate, where I could go through security to be allowed inside.
What an interesting setup, clean and simple. grow beds and Nutrient film technique (NFT).
The mature students where keen to show me their workings and findings of the system.
Plant life I was shown, from seeding and variable stages of growth.
seedlings just planted this morning in the NFT. I must say I was impressed at the root systems and growth. Very healthy vegetables.
The fish where impressive, so clean and healthy. Housed in their 1000lts IBC.
The English of the students was fair! But I was glad my young lady came along. Any fine necessities in conversation where easily sorted.
Next week I have an appointment with the tutor in charge.
