Precision agriculture is no longer a new term in crop production. It is now a widely accepted practice. Aerial imagery is a key component in utilizing precision agriculture techniques for the management of farmland. The GeoVantage Imaging System provides high-resolution, orthorectified images that are used by Cooperatives, Ag Service Providers (ASPs), Crop Consultants, and Growers to:
- Create management zones
- Evaluate the effectiveness of fertilizer applications
- View the whole farm/field
- Perform in-season analysis to make crop management decisions
- Manage geo-referenced soil sampling
- Precisely schedule irrigation
- Scheduling of pesticide applications
- Find mechanical errors in application equipment

It all start with breeders. The development of new cultivars is perhaps the most important means of improving quality traits and yields, and dramatic improvements have been achieved in the “green revolution”.
Extensive testing and analysis is a key factor of success when selecting and evaluating new varieties, and Perten Instruments has worked with breeding companies for many years. The fact that the speed and quality of analysis is important for the development time and the quality of new line development has been a cornerstone in our product development.
Our products and solutions give breeders unique opportunities to bring new, innovative cultivars to the market.

Nitrogen supply for agricultural applications and in particular:
- Nitrogen injection in cultivated soils;
Special Know-How & Services from NOXERIOR
We at NOXERIOR have developed a special and patent pending nitrogen supply system for micro-organism pest control in cultivated soils. This patent pending nitrogen soil injection and distribution system in combination with our NITROSWING® PSA nitrogen generator offer you a unique and environmental friendly alternative to combat fungi and parasites, like nematodes, to protect your crop. A reliable estimation of nitrogen requirements and a correct dimensioning of the nitrogen generation system from our NITROSWING® PSA nitrogen generator product range will be determining for the economical and environmental benefits you expect from our patent-pending on-site nitrogen generation and distribution system.
We will provide consultancy regarding the most efficient nitrogen distribution as well as patent-pending technology for nitrogen injection into the soil under consideration of all relevant parameters. Together with you will find a compromise between the use of energy and the efficiency of nitrogen transfer to optimise costs.

Birds are naturally drawn to food supplies in agricultural areas, transmitting diseases and damaging crops. Fruits, vegetables and newly-seeded and emergent crops provide an all-you-can-eat feast for birds if unchecked. Birds typically eat their body weight in food every day causing damage to crops and food storage in barns ranging from 5-50% or more!Globally, this problem causes billions of euros of damage each year. Effective bird control is essential and farmers do anything to keep birds away from their crops. At Bird Control Group we offer cost effective and animal-friendly solutions for protecting agricultural areas and keeping your valuable crops safe.
The principle of repelling birds with a laser beam is inspired by nature. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical object. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. It’s safe, silent and birds do not get used to the laser beam.

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.
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, Pepper, Tomato, Cucumber, Hot Peppers, Flowers, among others.
The world’s population consumes an enormous amount of mushrooms each day. To meet this demand, highly efficient and hygienic production methods are required to deliver quality mushrooms on-time. Because of their proven performance and reliability, TenCate materials have become the mushroom and composting industry standard for pulling nets.
For instance, the indoor composting process for mushroom substrate uses a lot of energy. High energy prices have pushed composting companies to look for ways to reduce costs. They have found a solution in TenCate pulling nets. Their high airflow performance combined with high pulling strength, low weight, thin material and limited narrowing effect significantly increase yield and quality while reducing energy cost and down time.
TenCate Nicolon nets are used in mushroom growing, composting and other related applications. A long term knowledge and experience prove that TenCate nets are a reliable and tested contribution to your results.
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.
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.
AviTrac® is an innovative and patent-pending technology, developped by AgriProTech company. AviTrac® emits distress calls and predator calls in order to create a stressful environment for any pest birds. It is efficient on many species such as crows, pigeons, starlings, seagulls ... It can be used in many areas : agricultural fields, barns and stables, town centers, private buildings or commercial areas.It is ideal for any outdoor or indoor location invaded by birds. It is ideal for any outdoor or indoor location invaded by birds.

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
Bio-rational fruit protection
Non-woven fabric bag designed for the protection of individual or clustered fruits.
Performs sheathing which guarantees that no insect or plague comes in contact with the fruit isolating it from the exterior.
Unlike polyethylene bags, it is reusable up to 4 times
Generates a micro-climate that promotes the growth and quality of the fruit.
In Banana Trees and Bananas, it succeeds in moving forward the harvesting by 2 weeks.
Protects the fruit without the use of agro-chemicals; ideal for organic or bio-rational crops.
The Agribon® bag absorbs the latex residues that detach the bananas when deflowering; this manages to reduce or eliminate the “Latex Stain”.
Frequent crops: Banana tree, Banana, Papaya.
