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.
Ruminant livestock generates 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...
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.

For agricultural, R&D, greenhouses or grow-houses and more. CAS DataLoggers offers a large selection of greenhouse monitoring data loggers for use in agricultural processing and research, in greenhouses or grow houses, and even out in the field. Help promote growth and prevent plant disease/mold by logging seed and crop temperature, humidity, soil conditions, and more.
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.
Detail study presented in the paper listed below indicates that Acoustics yields a proper Particle size distribution in various dairy products. This can be achieved with no dilution. In addition, Acoustics yields information for calculating fat content.
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.

Underground locating and testing for the irrigation industry is our first area of expertise, and it remains our flagship industry. Our wire and valve location and testing tools are geared to provide contractors and workers on the job the robust functionality and simple usability they need at costs low enough to keep profits high. In other words, if you need valve and wire locators that are precise, durable and affordable, look for the Armada Technologies brand.
A clean and pathogen free water source is essential to prevent infections from being introduced and spreading in a hatchery. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of water for inactivation of pathogens is recognized as a safe and effective method for use in the aquaculture industry. Continuous monitoring of water quality by measure of UV transmission (UVT) ensures the UV light is able to penetrate the water effectively and achieve the optimal dose.
Whether its use is mission-critical or just to make your job a little easier, agricultural demand for rugged mobile technology is increasing. Our handhelds keep up with the latest agriculture technology.

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) offers the ability to analyze soil samples with little sample preparation, provides detection of all elements in the periodic table, and has a large dynamic range (ppm to wt. %).
Urban Trees are continuously exposed to several stress situations like air pollution, soil compaction, exhaust gases, damage of tree trunks, etc. For the responsible authorities it is important to anticipate these problems, as the consequences of possible accidents can be considerable (e.g. tree fall).EUROSENSE can provide a number of products that are important means for designing a correct policy for urban trees on short and long term.

Black Tip is caused by fungus that attacks wheat or barley kernels. In the early development stage the mold results in a decreased yields. In later stages attacks it results in discolored kernels that carry unwanted odors which results in a decrease in the commercial market value of the grain. According to USDA FGIS1, “kernels of wheat are considered damaged for inspection and grading purposes only when the damage is distinctly apparent”. In the U.S. wheat standard, blackened kernels are considered as...
We have optimized six and four ion probes for horticultural applications. For growers, these products offer a “lab-in-hand” solution — a quick and affordable way to maintain the proper nutrient balance required for better yield, improved flavor and color, greater disease resistance and longer shelf life.
Controlling the concentration of nutrients in liquids is a vital step in the fertigation process. Today, nutrient levels are tested daily, most commonly by measuring pH and EC, and dispatching samples to...

Using wireless sensor networks within the agricultural industry is increasingly common, as it provides many benefits to the farmer, impacting both the quality of the crops and the overall operating costs. WSN address the traditional monitoring problems related to oudoor areas, by removing the need of cables and of power sources in locations where no infrastructure is available. WSN are also specially suitable for temporary or problem-solving deployments, and to gather more numerous and more consistent data.
