`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
Agriculture is by far the largest water use at global level. Irrigation of agricultural lands accounted for 70% of the water used worldwide. In several developing countries, irrigation represents up to 95% of all water uses, and plays a major role in food production and food security. Future agricultural development strategies of most of these countries depend on the possibility to maintain, improve and expand irrigated agriculture.
Increase your yields while reducing costs at your growing operation. In-Situ’s easy-to-use equipment keeps your hatchery running smoothly, even in harsh conditions. Our solutions simplify aquaculture management, boosting efficiency through faster, more accurate monitoring.
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
Agro-meteorological application (AgMet) are becoming more and more important. With a rising world population, agricultural production has to become more efficient. Water is precious and scarce, pesticides are expensive and harmful to the environment if they get into the soil.
Improve your yields and control costs across your entire farm through automated oxygen monitoring and remote systems control. Continuous oxygen monitoring lets you fine-tune feed ratios to minimize fish stress, disease and mortality. Plus, save time and money with more efficient data collection and systems management.
Supplying water used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils is best done by lightweight and sustainable thermoplastic pipe and fitting systems.
applications that include:
Agricultural and landscape irrigation
Industrial water processing
Industrial wastewater treatment
Municipal water treatment (drinking and waste treatment)
Prefiltration to protect costly media and reverse-osmosis systems
In the dairy industry, the composition of the effluent stream varies according to the type of product. The water may, for instance, contain emulsions or have an extreme pH value or high temperature. Therefore, the treatment method required depends on the produced dairy product. AQUA Industrial Watertreatment offers various systems to treat the wastewater efficiently. With the help of a large Dutch dairy producer, a specific treatment process LOCO® has been developed, which has been adapted for use in the...
Ultraviolet disinfection systems in hatcheries, fish farms and aquariums have enabled operators to farm or keep greater yields of healthier stock.
Water quality is key to commercial aquaculture operators. Poor water quality will have an impact on the ability to successfully hatch eggs, raise juvenile fish and grow strong, healthy stock, so naturally a large investment is made in water cleansing systems. Chemical methods, while effective at killing some water-borne microbes, can leave harmful by-products in the...
Delta Hydronics Inc. is recognized as the leader in the Hydroponics Industry by designing, engineering and installing water heating and cooling systems for the hydroponic growing, harvesting and produce processing industries.
AgraGel® (T-400) water crystals are potassium based, organic cross linked co-polymers with water binding groups.
In dry form, they are white, crystalline granules with a neutral pH and when hydrated, become a gel which retains fluids, even under soil pressure and in the presence of fertilizers and other soil additives.
AgraGel® (T-400) water crystals are characterized by high volume absorption and fluid retention and are available in a variety of crystal sizes for various soil requirements.
