`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...
Globalization puts ever-increasing demands on the food and agriculture industry. Highly sensitive analytical instrumentation is key for reliable monitoring of food products along the food chain starting from agricultural production over food processing and packaging to distribution and consumption. Analytik Jena analytical solutions help you meet industry standards during both development of new products or quality control assessment.
A crusher bucket MB-C50 was used, mounted on a Kobelco, to reduce all inert material brought out from the plant, as the main goal was to access the interior to have a perspective of the future development.
Ruminant livestock generate a significant proportion of anthropogenic GHG emissions, and thereby contribute to Climate Change. Ruminants such as cattle. sheep, goats and buffalo produce meat and milk through enteric fermentation – a digestive process in which microbes decompose and ferment food in the digestive tract or rumen. This process produces methane which is emitted via belching. The amount of methane produced is directly related to the type of food consumed and the level of intake, in addition to...
Cambridge based Delta-T Devices specialises in instruments for environmental science, in particular: agronomy, plant physiology, eco-physiology, data logging, meteorology, soil moisture, solar energy studies and environmental monitoring.
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.
The water supply and irrigation industry provides drinking water treatment to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial sectors of the economy. This industry requires products and solutions for soil vapor extraction/groundwater remediation; chemical, biological and mechanical odor control; and fluid handling and filtration.
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:
improve water use efficiency
reduce fertiliser application rates
enhance crop development
Accuracy and ease of use make SM300 Soil Moisture Sensors well suited to irrigation applications. Readings can be used to optimise irrigation scheduling, or the SM300 can be installed as part of an automatic irrigation system. The sensor`s compact size allows it to be installed in plant pots or grow bags.
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.
Our UV water disinfection technology is used in fish farms, mussel farms, aquariums and hatcheries. The benefits of UV disinfection has led to the production of healthier and larger fish, improved water quality, possible increases in stock density and vastly reduces the risk of disease. UV light is a chemical free treatment that cannot be overdosed, ensuring the physical characteristics of the water, such as PH levels and temperature, remain unchanged whilst avoiding the introduction of harmful toxins, such as...
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.
Abattoir & Slaughterhouse waste is a potential incubator of bacterial, viral, prion and parasitic pathogens, capable of infecting both animals and humans. A quick, cost effective and safe disposal method is essential in order to reduce the risk of disease following animal slaughter.
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...
The Aquaculture industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the agricultural industry accounting for over 1.13 billion dollars in the USA alone. However, this industry is suffering with several water quality challenges requiring sustainable aquaculture water treatment solutions to enhance fish health, and population yield while meeting environmental discharge regulations. The challenges facing aquaculture companies include emerging growth rates of specific bacteria and viruses, water usage, and environmental...
