Welcome to the Sandponics (iAVs) Wiki
Welcome to the iAVS wiki! The Integrated Aqua-Vegeculture System (iAVS) is a revolutionary method of agriculture that was invented by Dr. Mark McMurtry in 1985. It combines fish farming with vegetable cultivation in a way that maximizes efficiency and minimizes waste. The original goal of iAVS is to provide a sustainable source of food for malnourished children in underdeveloped regions such as the African Sahel.
In this wiki, we will explore the various components of the iAVS system, including fish tanks, grow beds, pumps, filters, and more. We will also discuss how to set up an iAVS system step-by-step and provide tips for maintaining it over time.
Whether you are interested in sustainable, and organic, agriculture or simply want to learn more about this innovative technology, we hope you find this wiki informative and helpful!
