Prediction of minimum temperature and frost damage is a common method and important application in the field of agriculture like outdoors crops growth. In particular the areas where vegetation can be exposed to low temperatures, frost can be disastrous for young plants or fruits. Heat loss measurements inside a greenhouse is a similar application to control the temperature of the crop. When the IR radiation exchange is measured with a pyrgeometer, special screens can be closed when temperature are expected to drop rapidly.

Measuring Fat in Animal Feed using Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC. Animal feed is a key component in modern agricultural production ensuring that livestock receives the correct nutritional input for optimum animal health and farm productivity. The amount of fat in animal feed is one of the key nutritional and quality control parameters in the manufacture of animal feed. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC system provides a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring fat in animal feed without the need for solvent extraction which is slow, labour intensive and requires skilled operators. In addition, the instrument signal is directly and linearly related to hydrogen content (of the fat) which means that chemometrics in combination with a very large set of calibration standards are not required.
