Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) trials started at Vigyan ashram ….

February 15, 2015

As a part of study of feasibility of Aquaponics system in Indian contest, we have started trials on RAS system in Vigyan ashram. In this trail we want to study scope and feasibility of high density fish farming in drought prone conditions like Pabal. In earlier trials of aquaponics,  maintaining required fish density and water quality parameters  were important challenge. By setting RAS we wish to overcome these challenges and converted  stystem further aquaponics farming. Please follow following link for details —

Aquaponics – Farming techniquc

Please follow above link for viewing , paper on Aquaponics experiment (Cucumber trial) we conducted at Vigyan ashram. Presently we are experimenting on aquaponics technique with Leafy vegetable system (Spinach) with tillapia fish. This time we have planned to study effect of aquaponics on fish growth by comparing it with control fish pond.  Details will be posted separately.

Aquaponics cucumber trial – summery report

Aquaponics experimental trial on polyhouse cultivated cucumber , is been concluded in June 2013. This trial shown significant difference for aquaponics Vs control treatment. Above report is summery of experiment.


Fodder sprouting machine trial ………….

May 2, 2013

From last 1.5 month we are testing feasibility of developing low cost domestic fodder sprouting (Hydroponics fodder) machine. In this regard same initial trials are conducted in closed chamber with temp/ humidity / air circulation controls. Main objective of this trial is to standardize environmental control factors for fodder machine and achieve output of 5 times growth (1:5) in 10 days span.  In the recent trial , we found that 31 degree C and 77 % humidity would be required to get maximum yield in shortest time. For more details on trial are given in attached report – trial 2 – 14th to 23 rd april
