Aquaponics & Business of Aquaponics Presentation

What is this service?

This service is a 4-5 hour long presentation/lecture. It covers all aspects of aquaponics one should know to start their commercial farm. Beginning with the basics of aquaponics, I teach all core concepts, the origin of aquaponics farming, all possibilities, and steps to take to start your commercial aquaponics farm. The presentation has 12 sessions listed below. All sessions are universal, meaning anyone around the globe will find this presentation helpful. Due to the pandemic, I am no longer giving this presentation offline. I usually connect to the client through zoom, google hangouts, or skype. I try to provide as much knowledge as I can, which is not available on the internet. We can do the presentation a single day or two sessions over the weekend. Feel free to book the date and time according to your convenience.
The client may invite other stakeholders like investors or business partners to the presentation. The whole presentation is one to one conversation, giving scope to clear out all doubts. During the discussion, I like to consider the client’s vision towards the farming project he/she may wish to start. I want to solve problems that the client may be facing for creating a commercial hydroponics/aquaponics farm.

3D Farm Design & Animated Walkthrough

What is this service?

Building a farm is a daunting task. You may not know what steps to take and in what order to take them. You may not be able to visualize how the entire farm will look like on completion. On top of that, there are numerous components to procure, and the budget is limited. Making a 2D and 3D design of your farm will solve many problems for you. The farm design helps a farmer visualize the entire farm, understand every cost, list all components, and calculate the overall project cost. It also helps a grower figure out the operational costs and predicts harvest quantity. This is a massive step forward when the farm building idea is just in your head. The design acts as a blueprint for the entire project. It provides you a physical manifestation of your vision and a plan to follow. This service is followed by the above service. In “Hydroponics and Business of Hydroponics Presentation” I list out 20 different types of farm one can build. A client can choose any one of them for the designing phase. 

I provide Google Sketchup based 2D & 3D design to my clients. I also offer an animated walkthrough video of the entire farm, explaining all design choices and how to operate the farm as a whole. If the client is Indian, I provide a bill of material and management cost calculations.
