Intrigued to find both the fungus and the aquaponics theme in one blog post. This is a sign of the times, really. If we want to feed another doubling human world population we need to turn away from both top-soil-losing "conventional" intensive (land- or soil-based) agriculture and from overfishing towards agricultural methods that combine both raising fish and plants in water-saving closed-loop systems that resemble permaculture. And fungi will play an increasing role too as they can convert nutrients that other species (bacteria, animals or plants) can't. And a lot of lost soil retention and hence loss of top soil has been provoked by destroying the natural fungus "flora" in our humus strata.ReplyDelete
