Choosing and acquiring quantified MOMAX3® Moringa seeds for plantation for production of seed oil, is not only opting for high-performance seed from advanced research, but also benefit from on farm agronomic advice and learning from a team of experts
Control over pollen quality and pollination is a key success factor to ensure high quality seed and yield. Excessive warm nights, draughts, rain and pesticide applications negatively affect the pollen viability, quantity and timing of pollen shed, leading to a reduced seed set and yield loss. Consequently, measuring and understanding pollen quality in hybrid seed production allows maximization of yields, improvement of the female to male ratio and forecasting of your yield.

Why regulation of your greenhouse climate is important.
As a horticultural entrepreneur, you understand better than anyone that the greenhouse climate has an immense influence on the condition of your crops. Air temperature, humidity, CO2 content and the proper balance of growing lights are essential conditions for a healthy and vigorous crop. By regulating your greenhouse climate in a proper manner, you reduce the chance of disease and plagues and you ensure the quality of your production. Moreover, you save...
Vulcan® Systems technology was developed to address the growing problems produced by one of the oldest and most natural fertilizers in the world...manure.
For centuries, poultry manure has been handled as a solid, being directly deposited onto pastures, collected with poultry bedding, and applied as a nutrient for crops. However, as the number of poultry farms has grown, a need has developed for more efficient manure management. The process of transporting poultry manure to cropland, while still in raw form, has...

Iodine, a kind of common microelement, is usually added in infant milk power at microgram level, but it plays important role in infant growth and development. It impedes the growth of infant with insufficient or redundant dosage, for example it causes mental deficiency with less iodine however, it also causes thyroid problem with excess intake. Hence， there is strict limit for the addition of iodine in milk powder. The China nation standard GB14880-94 regulated that iodine or iodate is allowed for 250-680&mu...
Many plants will produce abundant quantities of very lightweight pollen grains. Transfer of grains or pollination is generally mediated by the wind, which is a requirement for any healthy indoor garden. When it lands on a compatible pistil or female cone, it germinates, producing a seed. This is an undesirable process when farming certain crops. Pollination control is one of the major concerns of gardeners as it can affect the final outcome of different types of crops.Pollination occurs when pollen from the male...
Alfalfa is a crop of the legume family and its scientific name is Medicago sativa. Alfalfa is a perennial plant of erect growth and is one of the most extended forage crops within temperate climate countries.
Working Towards Sustainable Agriculture Without Chemicals and with Optimum Yields of High Quality Crops. Biological sustainability for horticulture, agriculture and turf management has become a going concern for the future. Proventus is focused on creating beneficial and effective microorganisms for sustainable agriculture that can be successfully transitioned from chemical-based farming to alternative agriculture techniques that help to improve and maintain the quality of agricultural soils.
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.
Biochar is formed through the carbonisation of organic matter. Biochar can be used in many different ways. The decisive factor is always which quality criteria have to be met. Carbonisation – the conversion of organic material to biochar – is a process that has been known and practised for many centuries. However, only the state-of-the-art PYREG process can control the process parameters in such a way that biochar can be produced in different quality levels and nutrients can be gently recovered....
OGSI Leads the Way in Onsite Oxygen Technology for Aquaculture
The OGSI oxygen system is an efficient and cost-effective means by which to increase the dissolved oxygen (DO) level in an Aquaculture system. The system was developed by OGSI. It enables fish farms to dissolve oxygen in any size tank. Farms are able to increase stocking densities. The fish are also healthier and have better taste when raised in an oxygen rich environment.
Dairy raw wastewater is characterized by high concentrations and fluctuations of organic matter and nutrient loads related to the discontinuity in the cheese production cycle and machinery washing. Because the dairy industry is a major water user and wastewater generator, it is a potential candidate for wastewater reuse. Biowater’s wastewater system is based on highly efficient biofilm technology and is ideal for this type of application, one that requires pretreatment prior to discharge to a municipal...
