My Rice Trial in Aquaponics

I sow these rice seed on Nov 20th 2015 in the gutterbeds as a trial to see whether aquaponics can support this plants.



Rice needs lots of water, so it's a good candidate to try doing it in Aquaponics










I transplanted it to individual pots and place them in the #gutterbed, after two and a half months only did I realise it started to flower and produce rice grain.




I only keep four pots to try, and all the plant produce rice




Some reported empty husk, this I need to see in few weeks time whether it is empty or not.




Kids will love to see Rice plants, since these are grown far away from the busy cities.

  1. This is so awesome! Could we share a couple of these pictures in the ASC Magazine please? We have E-Mailed before about you writing us an article but I think growing Rice in AP is very cool. I would give you full credit for the photographs and make a return link back to this article. Thanks Victoria.
