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...
Delta-T Devices has been providing high quality instrumentation for plant physiology and intercepted solar radiation studies for over 30 years. Our plant science products are renowned for their build quality, accuracy and ergonomics – and are used by researchers around the world. Our range includes instruments for measuring stomatal conductance, Leaf Area Index in crop canopies and forest canopies, and to quantify healthy/diseased/pest-damaged leaf area.
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.
Delta-T Devices solar radiation measurement instruments are well suited to scientific research, meteorological applications, and commercial photovoltaic validation/monitoring. Our range includes the SPN1 Sunshine Pyranometer and BF5 Sunshine Sensor – both of which measure global (total) and diffuse radiation, and sunshine state (all in a single instrument). They are also easy to use and need no routine adjustment or polar alignment.
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...
Hilliard offers a broad line of motion control products for the Mining Industry including caliper brakes and backstopping clutches for conveyors, brake systems for draglines and ball mills as well as the Brake Boss brake control system. Hilliard products are designed, manufactured, and sold according to the customers` applications.
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 equipment to help horticultural growers and sports turf professionals monitor irrigation and control irrigation – using proven technology. Accurate measurements of growing conditions is key to effective precision irrigation – and we provide instruments that deliver reliable data to support critical decisions. The proven benefits of precision irrigation for growers include enhanced crop development (improved yield, quality and shelf life) alongside reduced fertiliser...
Delta-T Devices has over thirty years experience in designing and supplying environmental monitoring equipment – from a single sensor through to a complete advanced automatic weather station. Our range includes: data loggers, sensors, weather stations, mast and mountings, battery and solar power, a variety of communications options, and enclosures. Complex systems can be created with ease. These often include a wide range of inputs, such as soil moisture sensors, solar radiation sensors and meteorological...
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.
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.
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.
Goats have proven to benefit enormously from a diet of fresh fodder. With the global demand for goat meat and milk on the rise, goats are becoming more important to local economies than ever before. Fodder Solutions has several clients who are feeding fodder to reduce feeding costs, improved meat and milk quality, increase in milk yield and overall animal health.
