Welcome to Aponic Vertical Aeroponic Aquaponics

Aponic Ltd have developed a vertical soil-less growing system that uses 90% less water than traditional agriculture, runs on rain water and solar power, does not emit harmful run-off into the environment and massively reduces the need for fossil fuels in food production.

They can be mounted at a height that is convenient so that everyone can join in the fun of growing healthy, tasty food that you know has been grown without pesticides or herbicides.

The 90% water savings and massively reduced labour costs we can make it easy to turn unproductive land into low input, high value output, low carbon growing areas. This means that contaminated and otherwise unusable land in town can be used to grow food from all over the world with zero food miles.

As Aponic is constantly expanding we are also always looking for new opportunities to work with commercial food producers, farmers, research institutes and collaborators interested in sustainable agricultural intensification worldwide. Feel free to contact us to discuss potential collaborations and projects.

What Grows Best?

Most fruit, veg, herbs and salad crops will thrive in the system so you have to carefully choose the quantity and size of plants you put in, you usually get greater yeilds from the plants in this system so be prepared to experiment.

Herbs are great; basil, mint, thyme and oregano work really well, not to mention the tasty food crops. We love to grow spinach, tomatoes, kale, strawberries, cucumbers, melons, garlic, peas, lettuces and peppers to name just a few personal favourites.

Vertical farming is the future…

RayKurzweilGoogle’s Director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil, is quoted as saying:

"There will be a new vertical agriculture revolution, because right now we use up a third of the usable land of the world to produce food, which is very inefficient.

Instead we will grow food in a computerised vertical factory building (which is a more efficient use of real estate) controlled by artificial intelligence, which recycles all of the nutrients so there’s no environmental impact at all.

This would include hydroponic plants, fruits and vegetables, and in vitro cloning of meat. This could also be very healthy – we could have meat with Omega-3 fats instead of saturated fats, this sort of thing."

Vertical Aeroponics

vertical aeroponics

A vertical system that sprays the plant roots with a nutrient mix so that they get the correct quantities of nutrient and water and they also get good oxygen circulation and absorbtion to aid fast, healthy growth.

The nutriant in this method is created using the ammonia from fish waste which is converted to nitrate in the grow tubes by natural nitrifying bacteria. This enables two crops, one of fish, one of vegetables and the more you feed the fish, the more the plants grow.
