Parsley is a popular crop grown in aquaponic systems due to a number of factors such as its high market value, richness in vitamins A and C, and the general ease of parsley production.


While parsley can survive a wide range of temperatures, it requires at least 8°C for growth and shade for conditions above 25°C .

Parsley germination can take 2-5 weeks. Soaking seeds in 20-23°C water for 24-48 hours before planting is recommended to accelerate the germination process. Approximately 5 weeks after the seedling have begun to sprout, transplant them into the aquaponic unit.


Stalks are harvested once they reach a length of at least 15cm, removing outer stalks first.

Nutrient Availability

The availability of macro and micro nutrients varies depending on the pH of your system. The chart below displays the pH range and the nutrients that would be available within an Aquaponics system. The Aquaponics system pH range is also indicated below in blue.
