I did a science project on this in middle school in the 90s because I thought it was such an ingenious concept, and I still see similar displays at the Virginia State Fair every year. It is surprising this isn't a more wide-spread agricultural technique. I hope they are a big success.

Hello Friends,

When most folks think of Orange County agriculture, they think of corn and cows. Now, they can add fish to the county’s agricultural line-up. The Orange County facility will have greenhouses for the company’s hydroponic and aquaponic systems. Hydroponics is the method of growing plants where the roots are submersed in a nutrient solution, rather that soil, allowing them to grow quicker, healthier and stronger. Aquaculture is the method of growing seafood in tanks or ponds. Putting both together in one system creates aquaponics, which is utilized when freshwater seafood and certain vegetation is grown within the same environment. Crisper Products uses all three methods.

Thanks and Regards,
Donald Martin
