Anyone know of a good hydro- and aquaponics shop in Chiang Mai ? Both for equipment, organic liquid nutrients and seeds...

Please someone tell me the location of the retail hydroponics store, where I can buy primary nutrients (packed in 1 kg) such as: Calcium Nitrate, Potassium Nitrate, Potassium Sulphate, Magnesium Sulphate, Monopotassium Phosphate, Iron Chelate, Microelements, etc ..
I live in Laos, so I cannot buy online. I can go from Vientiane to Udon Thani or Knon-Kaen (ok, Bangkok, but undesirable, because it's far-far away).
I want to come for 1 day better in one store and buy everything. Please write the exact location for tuk-tuk or google map location or what need to google. Thanks!

You can try this place  http://www.higreenshop.com  but they are located Bangkok about 20km from Suvarnabhumi airport. they have a map and GPS location on their site. The gps location is acurate. 

Maybe if you had a contact in Thailand that you can send too could work out.

Hello All, I can get the Fe and all the major salts at an Ag Store in Korat.

They don't have the other micros, only the Fe. and it comes in a 1 Kg. box.

All the major salts come in 25Kg. bags, and the Moly I get in BKK comes

in 100g. bottle, the solubor in 500g p. bottle. The Cu, Mn and Zn come in

1Kg.

You do have a  .001 and or a .01 scale to weigh?

If your just wanting to try hydro, you could get a 10L kit of dry premixed

(A & B) for greens, toms/chili or melons, just add water. Accent, Fresh

Gardens and ACK. If you read through TV, there are several threads on who

sales what and where. WESCO in BKK is the only place that I know of that

has ALL the chems in one place. for the micros they have the Cu sulphate

and Chelated Cu, same with the Mn & Zn.

You might ask who ever you buy from if they can send by bus or train and 

you pick up from the NK station. They usually ship  10L dry kit by EMS here in LOS to your door. Do you have an address you can use in LOS?

Don't @ a store, call! Most places don't have people that can reply in Eng.

Accent TH has a site as does WESCO.  JB has had problems with getting

prices from WESCO I just have the wife call and do the talking.

If you have a question, PM me, I don't come to TV that much anymore.

Happy New Year.

I haven’t posted here for a while so I decided to catch up so to speak, iam outside of Chiang Rai city not  far from the main highway on the way to Measai and they  say a picture paints a thousand words so here’s quite a few, millions in fact. This is my Aquaponics system as the 1st of Jan,the greenhouse is 12 x 6 meters,fish house has 4 tanks plus filtration etc etc.

 I have over 4 years AP experience in Thailand under my belt, plus I finished the Chattersons Farm training course last year so if there is any help I can share here with the members I am very happy to do so,visits are no problem and iam happy to help and train those just starting out.

Best Regards.

Andy,

Hi Andy. That's super impressive mate. I've got some of my aquaponics gear (2 x 1000 L fish tanks, 4x growth beds and hydroseal rocks), been waiting for me to start for nearly a year now.
Just finished my swimming pool installation and plan to get into the aquaponics when i get back in late January.
I was thinking of building a similar green house to you, but with openable windows on the top small vertical sections. I'm in Isaan near Mukdahan and think I will need some convection currents when it gets really hot.
I think I have room for 6 x 1000 L fish tanks in my fish room.
I'm going to visit Robert at Aquaponics Thailand when I get back then I think I would love to make a trip up from Isaan to look at your great set up and learn a bit.
Thanks very much for the post.
Carl

You are more than welcome to come over and visit, we can go through AP and I can show you what works for me, in the mean time if you want to know anything just give me a shout.

Sorry Hydoponics growers: grow for appearance and sellability, but don't expect food quality.  

 

So they tested 30 samples from hydroponics growers and 63% of those tested were tested.

 

Do you or they have any idea how many hydroponics growers there are in business across Thailand? I certainly have no idea but I am certain that there are far more than 30.

 

There is one just across the klong for me and they cannot grow enough to satisfy their customers now and AFAIK they have been tested and passed.

 

If you look in TVF under small farmers etc you will find plenty there let alone the two mentioned in the thread above.

 

Just because it is in the Nation doesn't mean it is 100% correct.

Hi@dasboot

I've been thinking a bit about my greenhouse design, and think I'll go for polycarbonate roof sheeting if I can find some that blocks much of the UV rays. I've only started to read up on this, but it seems if I can block the UV rays, I won't burn the plants.

I don't think I can use the white insect screen construction as we get high winds and torrential rain which would probably damage the structure. I thought the polycarbonate would be stronger and waterproof, but worried about the heat inside the greenhouse.

What do you think?

Hi, i would like to start to do a hydroponic system to grow some lettuce. Is it a obligation to install a greenhouse ? Why do we need to use it ? 

 

Thanks :)

For me, it would be to have more control on the plant environment.

You can stop the torrential rain destroying everything, and control the UV filled sunlight and stop insects.
