TenCate Geotube technology is used for agriculture applications to reduce the waste in lagoons and utilize the contained nutrients for crops. This dewatering technology reduces the lagoon size by 50%, reduces labor and energy for land application by 50-70%, stores contained nutrients until needed for crops, provides higher quality flush water and reduces the odor and insect problems normally encountered. Over time, these solids dry in the dewatering containers, making the contained nutrients easier to transport...
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.
Why efficient irrigation is important.
Water and fertilizers are essential to the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase...
Why managing company information is important
Managing your horticultural company demands insight into various processes. For the cultivation of your crop, you collect information about the greenhouse climate and water and energy use. In addition, you als to deal with data about labor productivity, costs, inventory and planning – among other things. Good control of production and quality, along with the management of costs and yields are essential for your company profit. This means that all the information from...
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...
Why regulating your energy consumption is important
A growth climate with the proper ratio of light, warmth and CO2 dosage ensures high production and quality. The most important sustainable source of growing light and warmth for your crop process, the sun, is not always sufficiently available. That’s why supplemental energy must be used. However, fossil energy sources, such as natural gas and petroleum are becoming ever scarcer and more expensive and they burden the environment. Efficient management of energy...
Greenhouse-grown plants represent an increasingly important segment of the horticulture industry. Greenhouse operations produce a variety of annuals and perennials in a controlled environment. These plants are then sold at independent garden centers and mass merchants before becoming fixtures in consumers’ homes and commercial landscapes. Studies have shown that plants can reduce stress, clean air, decrease utility bills and improve the overall value of a community. Greenhouse Management is the leading...
The wholesale nursery market plays a vital role in the green-industry supply chain. With hundreds of thousands of acres planted across North America, nursery operations of varying sizes provide containerized and field-grown trees, shrubs and perennials. Nursery growers make significant capital investments in their crops, many of which are in the ground or in containers for years before they’re ready for market. These nursery products grace home and commercial landscapes, city parks and urban forests....
Aerial surveys have become an integral part of forestland management, in large part replacing extensive field surveys.
