Study finds microgreens are a perfect match for aquaponics
Recent proGIreg research highlights the potential of microgreens for boosting profitability and sustainability of aquaponic farming. Aquaponics combines aquaculture (growing fish) with hydroculture (growing vegetables in nutrient-rich water), and is one of the key proGIreg nature-based solutions since it requires no soil, an advantage for post-industrial areas, where soil is often contaminated. The project intends to enable the post-industrial areas of Dortmund, Zagreb, Turin and Zenica to be...
