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 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...
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.
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
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
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.
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...
In parts of the world the cost of water for irrigation has increased tenfold in the last year, driven both by scarcity of resource compared to demand and legislative controls that are forcing water distributors and farmers to examine their historical practices.
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.
Since 1987, TECNIDRO works in the agriculture field, offering a vast range of products specifically designed for this special market. TECNIDRO offers different line of automatic control valves, manufactured in cast iron, ductile iron and in technoplastic materials like PVC or reinforced PU or Nylon. Each line specifically designed to improve irrigation system efficiency while helping to save water. This efficiency means also an overall cost reductions, due to longer life components and simpler maintenance.
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 lab is certified and equipped to serve our clients by identifying pathogens from samples obtained from soil, water and plants. A variety of tests can be offered for pathogens detection and pathogen identification in the lab. In addition, our scientists, with training in plant protection, will be available to provide consulting services to our clients for additional support. Our timely support can help you to prevent plant diseases from spreading or happening.
The TracMap system is an in-cab GPS display unit and a cloud based job management system called TracMap Online. Using TracMap Online, you can draw maps of the areas you want treated, mark out hazards and input job details. You can then wirelessly send the job to the TracMap in-cab GPS unit that guides your driver to the exact area for job completion.
Forestry, by its very nature, takes workers into tough outdoor environments. We`ve had customers use our devices for timber cruising, GPS navigation, wildlife surveying and other types of forest management. From silviculture to wildfire management, the mapping, imaging and reporting capabilities of today’s rugged handhelds are an essential part of keeping our forests healthy — and forest workers efficient.
The 3D ForestGIS Application is a web based system with photogrammetrically processed 3D tree and tree models. You can use the System to precisely asess the wood volume, map the forest structure, include a variety of external geodata, query, print and share the maps with other Internet devices (PC, Laptop, Smartphone, Tablet).
