    Improved Resolution of Mycotoxins from Cereal

    Mycotoxins are a diverse group comprised of hundreds of secondary metabolic products of various fungal species. Several show marked toxicity in humans. Contamination of the food supply with mycotoxins is increasingly prevalent, and can occur during growth, harvest, transportation, processing or storage. Techniques to reduce mycotoxin concentration after contamination are expensive, unreliable and sometimes reversible. Therefore, the removal of contaminated products from the food chain is a primary means of...

    Gas analyzers and monitoring systems for Greenhouse gases from ruminants

    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...

  • Water filtration systems for sub-surface drip irrigation

    It is an irrigation system that uses a main network to distribute the filtered and pressurized water to the emitting pipes under the surface of the terrain and together the crop line. The emitters in line supply a unique flow rate by each emitting point that is among the interval of 0,6-8l/h. The volume of water supplied under the surface of the soil (nearest the plants) generates a spatial distribution of the same named “dump bulb”. The shape and size of this “dump bulb” is different from the surface localized...

  • Salt OUT The solution to your salinity issues!

    Salt Out™ reduces or eliminates salinity stress in plant growth by sequestering sodium and chloride ions from penetrating plant root tissues. These conditions usually occur due to the buildup of salts as a result of fertilizer applications, irrigating with reclaimed, well or pond water, as well as salts deposited by ocean mist. Salt Out™ coats the plant roots disallowing the update of the salts thereby enhancing nutrient uptake resulting in rapid improvement and stabilization of turf color. Salt Out™ also...
