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 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...
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.
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.
Maintaining the fragile balance of the ecosystem of surface water is a burning environmental issue. Such as natural surface waters fish farms are also vulnerable by any unexpected growth of algae or poisoning. Based on the detailed reports generated by WaterScope immediate intervention is possible in case of changes in the ecosystem. Healthy water means higher quality fishes and cost efficient operation of fish farms.

For wine growers it isn`t just a question of giving your vines enough water - sometimes they need to stress their grapes by depriving them of moisture to ensure that the fruit reaches the quality sought by the winemaker. In particular, soil moisture levels are critically important to the management of sugar and anthocyanin in the initial stages of ripening right the way through to the production of flavor compounds in the later stages of the lifecycle of the grape.
Different sorts of food and agricultural products may contain various concentrations of nutrients, ranging from trace amounts to percentage levels. While most of these nutrient concentrations are healthy, some can be toxic to humans or animals. Bruker offers simple and effective nutrient testing solutions for the determination of nutritional elements in food and agricultural samples with routine and reliable nutrient analysis. All of our solutions enable fast, accurate and precise measurement of nutritional...
Hog and poultry farmers around the country use the xProxy® alert system for remotely monitoring various areas in their facilities, such as temperature, feed and water levels, open gates and cages, expensive power outages, and more.
Many states have governmental departments with diverse responsibilities in regulatory monitoring such as animal health, weights and measures, gas and oil inspection, seed and fertilizer inspection, feed analysis, crop and livestock statistics, monitoring agricultural environmental issues, as well as research and development. The key to success is a data management system powerful enough to handle all the data measured, reported and analyzed, and flexible enough to match the workflows, regulations, and rules...
