Farmers and researchers in the agricultural industry have used AMS sampling equipment for over 50 years. The AMS Step Probe, Soil Recovery Probes, and a variety of one and two-piece augers are used in the agricultural sampling market to obtaining disturbed samples at or near the surface and for boring to depths where more precise samples can be obtained. AMS now offers a variety of nematode sampling equipment, ATV-mounted PowerProbe rigs, and one and two-piece open-faced augers.
Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials. Edible rendering processes are basically meat processing operations and produce lard or edible tallow for use in food products. Edible rendering is generally carried out in a continuous process at low temperature (less than the boiling point of water). The process usually consists of finely chopping the edible fat materials (generally fat trimmings from meat cuts), heating them with or without added steam, and then...
EHS and sustainability professionals at IHS have served all kinds and sizes of organizations, worldwide, for decades. We pioneered the development of many sustainability information management solutions and continue to lead the way with new innovations.
Humic acidscan be successfully used as an additive in animal feed. Various research trials conducted worldwide have all showed positive results concerning the use of humic acids as an organic feed ingredient. Increases in liveweight of animals, improved growth rates, increased feed intakes and food conversion ratios and a stronger resistance against diseases are the common results of these trials. By improving immune function of animals, especially of young animals, humic acids also reduce the incidence of...
At Diversified Plastics, we recognize that in the agricultural industry, equipment is exposed to extremely harsh environments. Because of those environments, components on the equipment break down considerably sooner than in normal environmental conditions. Plastic offers many advantages in solving issues such as this.
Benefits that plastic components offer:
The stationary agricultural dryer AgroDry® used for drying high-quality agricultural products is an efficient drying system for agriculture and contractors. The modern discharge technologies generate rates constant product moisture. Because of the circulating air and heat recovery optimum energy saving is possible. For the production of the stationary agricultural dryer AgroDry® only high-grade aluminum is used, which makes both indoor and outdoor installation possible. In addition, the aluminum alloy...
Balancing the inputs and outputs on a farm is fundamental to its success and profitability. The ability of GIS to analyze and visualize agricultural environments and workflows has proven to be very beneficial to those involved in the farming industry. From mobile GIS in the field to the scientific analysis of production data at the farm manager`s office, GIS is playing an increasing role in agriculture production throughout the world by helping farmers increase production, reduce costs, and manage their land more...
Farmers across the world can face significant financial loss due to bird damage. Scarecrow’s leading bird scaring technology is an easy and reliable way to control major avian crop pests like pigeons and crows.
Scarecrow bird scarers decrease crop damage by dispersing birds in a safe and humane way. The nature-inspired technology uses bio-acoustics to protect farmland and agricultural areas.
• Reduce financial loss due to crop damage caused by birds
• Reliable, humane and safe agricultural...
Agricultural waste materials like wheat and rice straw, EFB, and bagasse etc. can be sold and used as animal feed, as fuel for kilns and small power plants. and for the production of ethanol. Unfortunately these materials are not easy to compact using traditional agricultural type balers. Macpresse balers have successfully been used in several countries, i.e. Japan, Korea, China, Sudan for transport and storage. Bale weights of up to 2 tons have been achieved.
Shrewd agricultural producers in every state use Crisafulli`s portable PTO powered trailer pumps for high-volume water transfer. A 16` Crisafulli will pump an acre-foot of water in thirty-three minutes. Farmers rely on Crisafulli Pumps to protect crop yields, by pumping water off rain-saturated fields, as well as supplying water to flood and furrow-irrigated farmland.
Greater crop quality and yield
Forms a physical barrier between the plant and the environment, protecting it from plagues, insects, infections and dust.
Allows the seepage of the water, air and light needed for the growth of the plant.
Generates a micro-climate that promotes better yields and quality of the crops.
Minimizes or even eliminates the use of agro-chemicals in the crops. Ideal for organic or bio-rational producers.
Adds value to the crops in export markets.
Main crops: Melon, Pumpkin, Watermelon,...
