Growing duckweed for fish, birds and livestock in the Duck Weed Farm, is an ideal means for producing feed from recycled on-site waste resources, rich in nutrients with no input costs.

By submerging fresh green biomass or even human urine into the Duck Weed Farm, a steady supply of nutritious animal feed can be supplied daily.

Duckweed is one of nutrient rich plants in the world.

It has an amino acid profile that looks more like animal meat than any other protein besides soybean. It grows 10x as much protein per square foot as does soy and it requires no processing to be consumed by animals. It is highly nutritious and may one day be recognized for the Superfood that it is; an important solution for malnourishment and starvation.

This floating plant, bears only 2 leaves and one or two roots and is believed to be the smallest known flowering plant. Duckweed can be dehydrated, pelletized and stored as a livestock feed. Humans have eaten it though water contamination at is common source in lakes and ponds can be unpredictable. It also shows great promise in biofuel technology as it is an rapidly growing, easily harvested biomass that has a high ethanol output potential. Duckweed has been found growing in all parts of the world including regions as inhospitable as the antarctic.
