Introduction Matt Stong
Currently, I am in the controlled environment agricultural program here at the University of Arizona. I have good knowledge of ebb and flood, trickle, and NFT hydroponic techniques. My current emphasis is designing greenhouse for the developing world, ie cheaper and uses less electricity. I can be assistance in design of a controlled environment for your hydroponics if you so desire.
As far as pushing aquacultural effluent through drip, you will have two possible problems. Cloggin of emitters from the biological matter and introduction of pathogens into your cropping system. Of these introducing pathogens will be the most detrimental. Depending on your avilability of electricity, there are two options to address these concerns. If electricity is available and not too expensive use of ozone to break up the organic matter and kill the pathogens is optimal. If not a slow sand filter using ATSM 30 sand is next best, in conjunction with clorox. In commercial agriculture we use sand filters and injected chlorine gas to accomplish these tasks.
A complete chemical analysis can be done relatively simply using today's tech. There are several inexpensive ways to get the basic needs. If you sent a water sample up here, I could do an analysis.
In any event if I can be of assistance please let me know. My objective
upon completion of school is to be involved in agricultural projects in the
