Aquaponics Role in Feeding the Future

In this video, Professor James Tidwell discusses the importance of aquaponics and aquaculture in feeding the future of the human race. Professor Tidwell is the Chair of the Division of Aquaculture at Kentucky State University.

See the slide deck presentation: Aquaponics Role in Feeding the Future

For even more great information on the incredible importance of aquaculture, see an article from Scientific American — It’s Time to be Honest about Seafood. This article details the necessity to develop a U.S. aquaculture industry. And, as an aquaponic-grower, we should all ask, what are you going to do with all that fish effluent!?

Introduction to Organic Certification

FREE Introduction to Organic Certification Webinar

(Available on Tuesday, December 17, 2019)

Organic crops are in high demand from health-conscious consumers.  Organic certification is quite obtainable for aquaponic, hydroponic and conventional farms. In rapidly increasing numbers, grocers, pack houses, processors and crop brokers require food safety and organic certification for the crops they sell.   Are you already missing sales?

Discover what you need to know to pursue organic certification.  This free, recorded webinar will cover the following:

  • The Jump Start.  We build your Organic Systems Plan to guide your activities throughout the year.  Happily, this process also teaches you the rules.
  • Daily Logs and Input Tracking.  Know which logs apply plus when and how to use them.  Learn about approved products. Those products are called “inputs” and will include seeds, nutrients and other items.
  • Risk Analysis is done for your processes. We do this tough job together, right in the webinar along with the management plans that go with each one.
  • Everything Else. Harvest tracking, detailed farm and paperwork checklists. A Worker-Training Program and testing requirements.  Signs around the farm, knowledge and relief.
  • Ongoing Support.  Every Farm Plan client, whether through a custom-designed program, webinar, workshop or Do-It-Yourself system comes with email support for that crop year.

Who, What, When, Where, Why and How?

  • The Farm Plan works for fruit and vegetable crops, every farming style, everywhere.
  • The Farm Plan is a GLOBALG.A.P. certified private company that carefully guides their food safety and ORGANIC certifications. 
  • As a farmer, our CEO makes sure every program is designed from the farm point of view, each task fits into your normal work day.
  • A GLOBALG.A.P. Certified Farm Assurer is a trained and approved independent consultant guiding farms one-on-one to certification. 
  • Begin now with this Aquaponic Association supported workshop.  There’s nothing else like it.
  • GLOBALG.A.P.  meets retailer demand.  
  • ORGANIC CERTIFICATION adds to the high marketability of your crop.

Chat with Food Safety Trainer Juli Ogden

In this video, Aquaponics Association Senior Adviser Kate Wildrick and Food Safety Trainer Juli Ogden discuss food safety on the farm, and Juli’s upcoming pre-conference seminar “GLOBAL G.A.P. Made Simple”.

GLOBAL G.A.P. is a food safety certification that applies to all farming and works great for aquaponics. Farms that sell produce to retailers need food safety certification.

It’s great to hear Juli’s inspirational message about aquaponic farmers overcoming their food safety hurdles without the headaches! Check out the video, above. And if you plan on coming to the Putting Out Fruits Conference, consider the food safety certification seminar:
