    Irrigation solutions for Apple Crops

    It is a tree from the rosaceous family and comes from the Asiatic south-east. It is one of the most extended fruit trees, cultivated worldwide, due to its feeding value, easiness to the adaptation to different climates and quality of the products obtained in the industry: juices, cider, liquor, marmalade, sweets and jellies. The bigger production of apple is in China, United States, France, Italy and Turkey.

    Gas Sensing for Horticulture

    Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used to supply water to such greenhouses and the use of heaters to control the temperature and thereby extend the growing season. However, modern systems have been developed for Controlled Environment Horticulture that are designed to further optimise the growing conditions; with sophisticated computer controlled sensors, combined with advanced software models, that can control not only the temperature, light level and water, but also the level of nutrients, humidity, pH and CO2

    Determination of D- and L-isomers of tartaric and malic acids in wines, wine materials, and food additive

    Naturally occurred is predominantly L-form of tartaric acid whereas its D-form and the relevant racemic mixture can be artificially synthesized. Generally, artificial acidification of wine with tartaric acid is allowed by OIV, but only pure L-form must be used for this purpose. Thus the analysis of tartaric acid isomers either in food additives or directly in wine can be an important parameter in clarifying any deviations in wine production. Analysis of isomers of malic acid is also within the necessary oenological procedures stated in OIV recommendations. LUMEX INSTRUMENTS offers the present method which allows determination of L- and D-forms of tartaric and malic acids in wine, wine materials, and special food additives by capillary electrophoresis method.

    High quality gas sensing solutions for agriculture

    Cost-effective long term continuous measurement of CO2. Commercial greenhouse control systems measure and control temperature and CO2 concentration for optimum growth. Edinburgh Sensors’ low range CO2 Guardian NG is designed for long term continuous measurement of CO2 and is a cost effective solution for CO2 measurement in commercial greenhouse control systems. The Gascard NG CO2 is also widely used to detect CO2 in Pig and Poultry processing applications where high concentrations of CO2 are used.

    Determination of whey proteins in milk samples by capillary gel electrophoresis

    One of the tests for authenticity of milk and dairy foods is the qualitative and quantitative composition of whey proteins and their ratio. Caseins dominate in cow’s milk before its processing (about 80% of total protein), whereas caseins are almost absent in the whey composition whose main components are the following:

    • β-lactoglobulins
    • α-lactalbumin
    • bovine serum albumin
    • immunoglobulins
    • lactoferrin and other minor proteins.

    Quality control of milk products

    In order to maintain high quality of milk products, it is necessary to monitor process quality as rapidly as possible, so that a relevant technological process could be promptly corrected. The most important quality factors of milk products are fat, protein, moisture (total solids), SNF, sugar, salt, lactose and titrated acidity. Commonly, it takes a few hours to make such type of analyses by traditional methods. The use of an InfraLUM® NIR analyzers reduces the analysis time to a couple of minutes.

    Quality control of milk and milk products

    In order to maintain high quality of milk products, it is necessary to monitor process quality as rapidly as possible, so that a relevant technological process could be promptly corrected. The most important quality factors of milk products are fat, protein, moisture (total solids), SNF, sugar, salt, lactose and titrated acidity. Commonly, it takes a few hours to make such type of analyses by traditional methods. The use of an InfraLUM® NIR analyzers reduces the analysis time to a couple of minutes. 

    The method is based on measuring the transmission spectrum of a sample in the near-IR spectral region and subsequent determination of the analyzed parameters/constituents using a calibration model. Transmission measurement provides highest accuracy and reproducibility of the measurements.

    Irrigation solutions for Tomato crops

    Tomato is one of the most spreaded agricultural products all around the world and even of higher economic value. Its demand is continuously increasing and with it, the crop, production and trade. The world production is of 85 millions of tons (FAO 2007) and the countries with higher productions are China, Mexico, United States, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Egypt. Continentally, according to FAO data, Asia participates with no more than 50%, followed by America with a 20%, Europe 15% and the rest comes from Oceania and Africa.

    Irrigation solutions for Sugar Cane crops

    The sugar cane is a plant which assimilates easily the solar radiation, having a efficiency near the 2% of energy conversion incidental in the biomass. This capacity increases the commercial possibilities to the profit of numerous products to extract, in most of the cases of higher value and economic importance than sugar. The cultivation of sugar cane presents itself as an opportunity of high value against other types of cultivations. Nevertheless, this crop also suffers the problems of water shortage. Taking into account this reality, and the efficiency and advantages of the drip irrigation practices already commented, this last one is an excellent way of improving in the agricultural exploitations where this crop is already introduced.

    Irrigation solutions for Cucumber crops

    Cucumbers come from the tropical areas of South-Asia and they grow in greenhouses in different climates. They are smooth and the colour, depending on the variety, can change from light green to dark green, reaching a yellowish colour when it is completely mature. They produce good outputs in warm and cold climates. Under extreme conditions ventilation and heating systems are necessary. The bigger producers are China, Turkey, Iran, United States, Japan and Russia.
