"Aquaponics tomatoes "producing fruit like crazy"

Stuppy is currently conducting an experiment, with the goal to determine whether the quality and yield of tomatoes grown in their aquaponic system can effectively compete with those grown in a traditional hydroponic system. Both systems use powerful LED fixtures with board spectrums ideal for fruit production.

On 10/20 several tomato seedlings (4 different varieties) were transplanted into the aqua media bed and hydro NFT channels simultaneously. By 11/15 all varieties had produced their first fully developed flowers and on 01/24 the first tomato harvest occurred for both systems.

The four varieties include: Hybrid Cherry (HC), Washington Cherry (WC), Heirloom (H), Determinate (D).
