The expanded territory of the valley of Mexico known as a Tenochtitlan or floating city. A floating island is a raft , frame made with logs and sticks, sometimes of considerable size, on which selected topsoil with biodegradable materials such as mud, grass, leaves, shells of different fruits and vegetables, etc. is deposited in the chinampa. A willow tree was planted to grow roots from water to dry land on the banks of ponds and streams and after the willow grows crops can be planted and then harvested. Chinampa is a technique pioneered in the Toltec era, although its peak was reached in the sixteenth century. By 1519 this technique for example took up most of the Xochimilco Lake, and its combination with other techniques such as irrigation channels and terracing made it possible to support a dense population.

Este método se utiliza para crear tierra agrícola en las superficies de los lagos y los estanques para crecer plantas diferentes. El territorio expandido del Valle de México , México fue conocido como Tenochtitlan o de la ciudad flotante. Una isla flotante es una balsa, marco hecho con troncos y palos , a veces de considerable tamaño , en el que la tierra vegetal seleccionada con materiales biodegradables como el barro , hierba , hojas, cáscaras de frutas y verduras , etc , se deposita en la chinampa . Un árbol de sauce fue plantado para crecer raíces del agua a tierra firme en las orillas de los estanques y arroyos y después de que el sauce crece diferentes cultivos se puede plantar y cosechar . Chinampa es una técnica desarrollada en la época tolteca , aunque se llegó a su apogeo en el siglo XVI . Para 1519 esta técnica , por ejemplo, ocupaba la mayor parte del lago de Xochimilco , y su combinación con otras técnicas , tales como canales de riego y terrazas ha permitido sostener a una población densa. video: Stephen Smith reporter: Ilona Kauremszky music: Kevin MacLeod http://incompetech.com http://www.mycompass.ca http://twitter.com/mycompasstv http://www.visitmexico.com/ http://www.yolcan.com/

In an integrated farming system nothing is wasted, the byproduct of one system becomes the input for another. By contrast, in the intensive system, the fish are given supplementary feeds the residues from which can be a source of pollution. In the natural pond system the strategy is to fertilize the water to encourage the growth of phytoplankton which become the main source of feed. Supplements may also be given but usually these are in the form of water plants such as duckweed and water spinach, which can be grown locally. By contrast, in the intensive system the feed is provided in a concentrated form with a high protein content made from ingredients that are purchased from outside the farm. The importance of the natural system has been realized of late and the scientific basis is being investigated to evolve appropriate technologies to get optimum productivity of the land, labour, waste and water. Better integration of the systems to involve crop and livestock production with recycling of wastes for aquaculture can help small-holder farmers to diversify their farm production, increase cash income, improve quality and quantity of food produced and exploitation of unutilized resources particularly labour and waste. More emphasis is needed on the integration of fish farming with agriculture and irrigation, livestock farming, sewage utilization and water pollution control not only to increase the productivity of land and water and improve the economic conditions of poor farmers but also to maintain health and hygiene of the rural poor and city dwellers alike. The two main components of the natural system are: (i) the means to fertilize the growth of phytoplankton; and (ii) the choice of water plants that can be a direct feed source to the fish. Early research used animal manures as replacement for chemical fertilizers (Cruz and Shehadeh 1980). Later research evaluated the processing of the manure in biodigesters and the use of the biodigester effluents as fertilizer in the pond (Edwards et al 1988; Pich Sophin and Preston 2001; San Thy and Preston 2003). Biodigester technology has developed considerably in the last decade and the use of low-cost tubular polyethylene has enabled the process to be within the reach of poor farmers (Bui Xuan An et al 1997; Doung Nguyen Khang and Le Minh Tuan 2002). The recycling of waste gives additional value to both human and animal wastes through gas production, production of good quality fertilizer and the control of pathogens. Duckweed has been used successfully as feed for mixed fish species in outdoor ponds fertilized with biodigester effluent (San Thy et al 2008; Sen Sorphea et al 2010). The leaves of Taro (Colocacia esculenta) have been shown to have high nutritive value for pigs (Chhay Ty et al 2010; Du Thanh Hang and Preston 2010; Manivanh Nouphone and Preston 2011) and ducks (Giang et al 2010). Recent observations indicate that the fresh whole leaves of Taro are readily consumed by Cachama (Colossoma macropomum) and Tilapia (Rodriguez Lylian, personal communication). Duckweed and Taro grow naturally in most villages in SE Asia. More info at http://www.lrrd.org/lrrd23/4/tick23100.htm Juan Gonzalo Angel www.tvagro.tv

Los Angeles Times reporter Richard Marosi and photojournalist Don Bartletti explain what it took to get access to places that have long escaped outside scrutiny. To report the "Product of Mexico" series, Marosi and Bartletti traveled across nine Mexican states, observing conditions and interviewing workers at some of the mega-farms that have powered the country's agricultural export boom. "The growing conditions are the best in the world for the food that’s exported to us," said Bartletti. "But the living conditions [of] the people who are picking it, growing it, planting it, watering it? Are like, the worst I’ve ever seen."
