Conversely, ponics offering the use of naturally produced fertilizers solves many of the issues associated with standard chemical nutrient solutions. Ponics is able to use any variety of animal wastes to provide the essential micronutrients required for healthy plant growth and production. Examples of animal wastes include, but are not limited to, fish (aquaponics), chicken, rabbit, cow and so forth. The waste streams are often flushed or disposed of as “waste”. MAquaponics makes use of these readily available forms and recirculates them back into practical use.
The INTAG process differs from traditional dry composting in a very significant way. Dry composting (on land, in compost piles) takes anywhere from 6-9 months to break down waste products into usable fertilizer. Our process takes approximately 7-10 days enhancing the ability to deliver highly effective nutrients to commercial ponic systems and traditional drip irrigation systems on demand. Systems can be installed in greenhouses, basements, sheds or anywhere else there is a source of electricity.
Additionally, like all ponic systems, ours recirculates water continuously throughout the system resulting in a significant conservation of water resources compared to traditional soil farming. The ease of construction and the space saving design make this technology extremely scalable and offers the ability to produce organically grown vegetables in any locale.
