I learned a few weeks ago that I was selected to present at the World Wide Aquaponics Conference September 21 to 23 of this year. Here are the details if interested:
Aquaponics & Arduino — The WHAT – The HOW — and into the FUTURE – In this workshop attendee’s will gain a understand of the arduino platform and how custom aquaponic automated solutions can be build on any scale.
– Know what an arduino is
– Understand the concept of open source
– Touch and feel the sensors that are used in a aquaponic system
– Demystify the use of technology in aquaponics
– Gain understanding of what the future in aquaponics can and will look like
Rik will have a full working desktop unit that is fully automated on a DIY scale. We will breakdown each sensor and explore how they work. We will talk about available resources and see how items purchased on a local level can lead to an automated system that is easy to install at any level. We will have web references and instruction guides on all the major components and how they are connected to form a “SENSOR NETWORK” in today’s world. We will talk about and demonstrate the concept of “INTO THE FUTURE – EVERYTHING WILL HAVE AN IP ADDRESS”
Rik Kretzinger grew up on a Christmas Tree Farm in Central California. He earned a degree in Horticulture from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA. He worked his way through college as a commercial grower at a major greenhouse operation growing Tropical Plants, and managed over 700,000 square feet of production Roses after graduation. He moved on to fill a Ag Specialist role with Union Carbide working with all the major agriculture crops in the Western States. he is presently working in Biotech industry supporting the growth and development of geneotyping of all major crops throughout the world. Automation in aquaponics started out as a hobby and has now developed in to a full time passion and a clear path to the future of agriculture in the world.
