`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...
Farming involves the largest market of professional high pressure washers. Every farmers today will own at least one machine which, however, will be rather big and difficult to handle when covering the various farming applications. An existing tractor is used as a mobile power station to drive a Neròn hydro cleaner which is easily coupled to the hydraulic sockets of the tractor by quick connectors that will eliminate handwork, save human manpower and increase agricultural productivity/profitability.
Prevent birds and wildlife from entering dangerous areas, as well as preventing mess and liabilities from animal mess. Bird-X products reduce and eliminate birds and wildlife from entering unwanted or dangerous areas for the good of all parties involved. Birds and animals are not harmed by Bird-X products - which are designed to make areas uncomfortable and unwelcoming to animals, forcing them to go elsewhere. Bird-X products have been developed since 1964, hold an excellent BBB rating, and we offer GSA Advantage....
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:
improve water use efficiency
reduce fertiliser application rates
enhance crop development
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.
We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
The Toptex protection fabric to safely cover potatoes is closely linked to a higher yield of the potato harvest due to reduced mass and starch losses. Its water shedding quality, which safely protects the potatoes from precipitation, characterizes the Toptex protection fabric for potato piles.
A secure covering with Toptex protection fabric for wood chips enhanced the storing of wood chips at a dry and cost effective level. An optimum energy yield is achieved when safely improving the storing of the wood chips before taking advantage of their energy characteristics.
Nicolon Shade Cloth Fabrics shade horticultural plants grown in commercial nurseries and greenhouses. Manufactured in widths ranging from six to 17 feet (1.80 to 5.20m), Nicolon shade cloth fabrics add beneficial cover for agricultural crops and livestock and can also function as industrial debris nets.
Protection against Frosts
Reduces drastic temperature changes
Drastically reduces frost damage by cushioning sudden temperature drops.
By providing a micro-climate with greater temperature than that of the environment, reduces harvesting time.
Main crops: strawberries, lettuce, flowers, melons, watermelons, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, among others
The Toptex protection fabric safely protects the high value of a sugar beet harvest by keeping any negative influence of frost at bay. Toptex fabrics can be easily installed and placed either manually or via dedicated machinery on the sugar beet harvest during the external storage time on the fields.
The controlled composting of organic waste with the Toptex protection fabric leaves odour emissions at bay and increases the quality output significantly. Composting is the conversion of organic wastes into high quality humus. Through systematic controls these materials can be returned to the earth, completing the cycles of nature and improving the soil to which it is applied.
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...
The Toptex fabric is a high grade membrane to protect straw, sugar beet and potato harvests from frost and rain, thereby reducing the amount of clinging clay on beets or potatoes and efficiently leading to less cleaning water needed in the process. On top of this, dried harvests offer a higher yield for the farmer and better quality for the consumer.
TenCate has a long history in modern agriculture, also in supplying technical textile solutions for livestock and especially the dairy cattle industry.
TenCate products make the difference in various ways. For example, TenCate Nicolon cow mattress covers improve cow comfort which increases milk production and TenCate Nicosil silage covers improve the quality of a farmers fodder.

Nicolon Ground Cover Fabrics control weeds found in land maintained by professional growers and landscapers. These highly useful fabrics feature woven polypropylene that allows water and nutrients to pass through while preventing roots from implanting into the soil. Available in widths from 3 to 15 feet (0.90 x 4.5m), Nicolon ground cover fabrics can also be utilized in soil separation and barrier fencing applications.
Greater crop quality and yield
Forms a physical barrier between the plant and the environment, protecting it from plagues, insects, infections and dust.
Allows the seepage of the water, air and light needed for the growth of the plant.
Generates a micro-climate that promotes better yields and quality of the crops.
Minimizes or even eliminates the use of agro-chemicals in the crops. Ideal for organic or bio-rational producers.
Adds value to the crops in export markets.
Main crops: Melon, Pumpkin, Watermelon,...
It is hard to believe, but most of the chemical, physical and biological phenomena occurring in nature depend on the humidity of the environment. As concerns the soil, humidity is not a stable feature of soil cover. It is influenced by many factors: meteorological conditions, groundwater level, mechanical soil composition, nature of vegetation, etc. Nevertheless, soil moisture plays an important role in the food chain, provides the growth and development of plants that ultimately become an animal and human...
