`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...
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.
In 2008, Watertronics became part of Lindsay Corporation, a Nebraska-based global manufacturer of agricultural irrigation products. Being a market leader in pump and control innovation, Watertronics was an excellent fit for Lindsay - matching water supply with water distribution… pumps with pivots. Watertronics products include not only pump stations, but advanced controls technology for high efficiency pumping that produces significant energy savings and labor savings. Today the Ag market is benefiting...

Argus is an automated control systems pioneer with over thirty years of leadership and innovation in control technology. We were among the first to use computers for integrating the control of greenhouse environments and irrigation systems. Today our systems are used in horticulture and biotechnology research facilities, universities, aquaculture and aquaponics, and many other custom control applications at sites throughout the world.
BCMbio™ is dedicated to providing a full range of microbial solutions to the agriculture, horticulture and turf management marketplaces. A rich, biologically active soil is fundamental to building a sustainable agricultural system. Our soil specific strains are designed to improve soil quality, increase plant health and provide a cleaner, larger yield at harvest.
For use with water well pumps and booster pumps, the Cycle Stop Valve (CSV) turns any pump into a variable flow, constant pressure system. Working in conjunction with a small pressure tank, the CSV is usually adjusted to the middle of the pressure switch range. IE; 40/60 PSI switch, 50 PSI CSV. The size of the pressure tank determines how much water can be used by the system before the pressure drops to 40 PSI, and the pressure switch starts the pump. As long as flow rates demanded is not more than the pump can...
The water supply and irrigation industry provides drinking water treatment to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial sectors of the economy. This industry requires products and solutions for soil vapor extraction/groundwater remediation; chemical, biological and mechanical odor control; and fluid handling and filtration.
Supplying water used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils is best done by lightweight and sustainable thermoplastic pipe and fitting systems.
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.
