For aquatic farming systems to become successful, efficient and cost-effective extraction procedures are needed and optimized for the chemical composition as related to management and seasonal variation. To further boost productivity and reduce production costs and environmental impact, farm management with respect to fertilization and integrated pest management needs to be optimized. For aquatic farming systems to become economically viable, farm management has to be optimized towards the desired products with minimum inputs, and effective pest management. As part of a whole value chain approach of aquatic farming systems, we analyze pests and diseases in mono-culture grown aquatic plants, and propose sustainable actions to prevent pest and diseases such that the quality of the product in combination with a high productivity is guaranteed.
