The Aquaponic Farm Management Plan

A Holistic Aquaponic Farm Management Plan


The Aquaponic Farm Management Plan: Leafy-greens & Herbs Module is for farmers who focus on leafy greens and herb production. To help standardize the manual, we concentrate on growing lettuce, kale, basil, and parsley production using any fish. We have built the manual in a way that is easy to amend for any crop based on your specific farm needs. This 700-page manual includes a customizable food safety plan, standard operating procedures, risk safety assessments,  integrated pest and disease management plan, nutrient programs, logs, checklists, reference charts, and extensive educational resources. 

Designed with the individual farmer in mind, our comprehensive manual can be customized to fit the needs of every farm.

Laboratory Testing

“Nutrition is the foundation of Life. Don’t guess, test.”

-Joe Pate

At Regen Aquaculture, we believe you are what you eat

That is why we have made it our mission to provide growers with the tools, resources, and knowledge to grow food that is considered medicine.

Every system is different. To determine what nutrients are limited or in excess, we have to test. Testing allows us to make customized nutrient management plans which create healthier plants. Over time, the data collected allows us to help you predict mineral nutrition and test less, improve crop quality, and grow more profitable crops.

Learn why our labs are unlike anything you have used before

As farmers, we understand firsthand the economic, physical, and mental stress that comes with pests and disease. 

After years of research using full water quality testing, we found that we could see what was in the environment but that this didn’t correlate with the nutrients that were taken up and how they were used by the plant.

We tried dry tissue analysis, but the results didn’t match our observations in the field. Then we came upon Plant Sap Analysis.

Plant Sap Analysis is equivalent to a blood test for plants. The test gives real-time data on plant health, allowing nutrient deficiencies to be detected an average of four weeks before they visually occur. 

When we combined these tests with an expanded view of nutrition and better management, our pest and disease issues decreased significantly, making them no longer a concern. By combining plant sap analysis with expanded views of nutrition, we were able to nurture our crops to peak health and radically decrease pests and disease issues.

The proven advantages of plant sap analysis confirm the widely held theory that poor nutrition and outdated testing equipment restrict the plant’s overall health and quality. By utilizing plant sap analysis, our plants are allowed to grow resistant to pests and disease.     

We fully endorse plant sap analysis and have partnered with industry-leading analysis companies to offer these services to you.

Benefits of Testing

  1. Plant Sap Analysis allows growers to detect nutrient deficiency on average 4-6 weeks before they are visible to the naked eye.
  2. Fine-tune nutrient programs for crops using a combination of full water quality and plant sap analysis.
  3. Proactive nutrient management improves quality, yield, disease and pest resistance, shelf-life, and profit.
  4. If your system crops and feeding rates stay the same, then we can determine your system’s standard operating range and develop reoccurring nutrient plans.
