    Mushroom Growing Netting for the Crop Farming Industry

    The world’s population consumes an enormous amount of mushrooms each day. To meet this demand, highly efficient and hygienic production methods are required to deliver quality mushrooms on-time. Because of their proven performance and reliability, TenCate materials have become the mushroom and composting industry standard for pulling nets.

    For instance, the indoor composting process for mushroom substrate uses a lot of energy. High energy prices have pushed composting companies to look for ways to reduce costs. They have found a solution in TenCate pulling nets. Their high airflow performance combined with high pulling strength, low weight, thin material and limited narrowing effect significantly increase yield and quality while reducing energy cost and down time.

    TenCate Nicolon nets are used in mushroom growing, composting and other related applications. A long term knowledge and experience prove that TenCate nets are a reliable and tested contribution to your results.

  • Breeding

    It all start with breeders. The development of new cultivars is perhaps the most important means of improving quality traits and yields, and dramatic improvements have been achieved in the “green revolution”.

    Extensive testing and analysis is a key factor of success when selecting and evaluating new varieties, and Perten Instruments has worked with breeding companies for many years. The fact that the speed and quality of analysis is important for the development time and the quality of new line development has been a cornerstone in our product development.

    Our products and solutions give breeders unique opportunities to bring new, innovative cultivars to the market.

  • Measurement of oil and water in seeds for agriculture sector

    The breeding, cultivation and processing of seeds to obtain vegetable oil is a major global industry. The amount of oil in seeds and water in seeds are critical parameters which need to be understood at all stages of the industry from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Oils derived in this manner are used in foodstuffs, the manufacture of biofuels and as a chemical feedstock for many products. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC instrument provides an extremely fast, simple-to-operate answer to the question “how much oil and water is present in my seeds?`

  • Measurement of oil content in jatropha curcas seeds for energy/environment sector

    The use of biofuels as a substitute for mineral petroleum-based fuels is now an important part of the world economy. This substitution process both minimises the use of irreplaceable mineral petroleum reserves and reduces the addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Jatropha Curcas seeds are a high oil content seed and are of particular interest since the plants grow on almost any terrain and do not compete for agricultural land required for food crops. The maximisation of oil content is the driving force behind oil seed breeding programmes and the measurement of oil in Jatropha seeds is important in both trading and processing. In both of these cases, a simple and reliable means of measuring the oil content of the seeds is required.
