  • Monitoring Tree Health Status

    Urban Trees are continuously exposed to several stress situations like air pollution, soil compaction, exhaust gases, damage of tree trunks, etc. For the responsible authorities it is important to anticipate these problems, as the consequences of possible accidents can be considerable (e.g. tree fall).EUROSENSE can provide a number of products that are important means for designing a correct policy for urban trees on short and long term.

    Acquisition of images -The acquisition of aerial or satellite images is the basis of tree inventory, mapping and most of our products. The assessment of the physiological tree status is done with colour infrared (IR) images. In the IR spectrum of the light, vegetation reflects much more and can hence be better analysed than in the case of normal light spectrum.

    Tree inventory - An inventory of the tree patrimony is the basis of a good tree management. Tree species identification, tree height, trunk circumference measurements and spatial localization of trees are primary needs for every Green City Service.
    Tree crown diameter - Based on semi-automatic aerial or satellite image analysis, the crown diameter of every tree can be calculated. The location, the extent of trees and their proximity to buildings can be visualised in a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment.
    Tree labelling
     - In the field, every tree can be labelled to assure the correct identification.

    Tree status assessment - Mechanical Status: EUROSENSE assesses tree stability with the Visual Tree Assessment method. This consists in identifying internal mechanical defects using external signs (e.g. appearance of the trunk, fungal fruiting bodies,…). 
    Physiological status: unhealthy trees, although appearing healthy on the field, can already exhibit obvious illness symptoms (lower red colour levels) on the colour infrared images. Mostly, this bad physiological status will only be visible on the field several years later.

    Data management - The integration of each tree into a GIS (Geographic Information System) database is essential. Within this GIS, the user can request, observe and add data during different stages of the tree management. By publishing the obtained data online, citizens can also visualize the results.

    Analysis tools - Trees can be evaluated through time by making evolution maps: improvement or deterioration of the health status of trees can be visualized. Statistical analysis, like tree species, health status distribution, etc. can be very useful in reports. Tree policy and management plan - A clear tree policy can result in a detailed management plan indicating concrete measures for every tree.

  • Irrigation

    "maximizing water utilization" By reducing friction & surface tension, TDS, salts, Sodium Absorption Ratio, balancing pH & Calcium/Magnesium Ratios, bicarbonates thus maximizing bio-availibility of nutrients and oxygen to plants and improving soil penetration and soil moisture retention, "mellower soils" & healthier plants; and reducing operational costs by saving water/energy, scale build-up, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and maintenance. Magnation water treatment, like the Magnation Scale Reduction System, creates additional collisions of ions that precipitate CaCO3, and it changes the free gas content in water that leads to improved crop yields. These mechanisms create many applications for the use of MW, with the use of MW having the potential to become more commonly used in the irrigation of crops, as drinking water for livestock and to prevent and remove scale buildup in hydrologic infrastructure. With many studies showing increases in crop yields & animal/soil health.

  • Laboratory Solutions for the agriculture & farming

    Many states have governmental departments with diverse responsibilities in regulatory monitoring such as animal health; weights and measures; gas and oil inspection; seed and fertilizer inspection, feed analysis, crop and livestock statistics, monitoring agricultural environmental issues, as well as research and development. The key to success is a data management system powerful enough to handle all the data measured, reported and analyzed, and flexible enough to match the workflows, regulations and rules specific to the agriculture and farming segment.

    Nutritional content of rice and pearl millet for agriculture sector

    Hidden hunger is caused by a lack of micronutrients - vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin A, Zinc and Iron) which are essential to good health. Micronutrient malnourishment can cause stunting and blindness in children and can lower IQ as well as increasing risks for mothers and infants during childbirth and lowering resistance to disease in both children and adults. The Energy dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) analyser X-Supreme8000 can screen whole grain rice samples for concentration of iron and zinc. EDXRF is faster and more cost efficient with the low cost of around 2 cents per sample compared to around $20 with current analytical methods

  • Ozone Water Treatment for Aquaculture

    Three reasons why ozone in aquaculture improves water quality and increase aquaculture productivity. As recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) operate by reusing the fish tank water it is essential to control the water quality. Many studies show that treating RAS systems with ozone increases productivity as fish health and survival is increased.

  • Water Disinfection for the Poultry Industry

    Healthier animals, higher income, significantly lower use of drugs and disinfectants Up until now, REDO units have primarily been applied on chicken breeding farms, as well as in the milk production, for the disinfecting of stables and for supplying the animals with water. The REDO disinfecting solution has a long term depot effect on the animal drinking water, which on the average maintains the water germ-free longer. Germ-free water is an indispensable basic element, during various production phases in the processing and generating of food and agricultural products. Whether in the dairy industry, chicken breeding or in the meat and egg production, the performance indicators are determined through the health status of the animals,for which germ-free water is a basic requirement. REDO has proven its efficiency in water treatment in these industries world-wide, even under difficult conditions, and contributes to a constant production increase for its customers.

    Measurement of oil and fat content in animal feed without drying for agriculture sector

    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.

  • Hot Air Dryer for Sweet Potatoes Processing Plant

    Sweet potato roots can be processed into dehydrated forms such as dried chips and flour for storage and uses in food preparations. Sweet potato drying usually performed traditionally with the use of sun, which is a time consuming method (about 56 hours) and produces an inferior quality product with high health risk due to high contamination. The most employed way to reduce the drying time and obtain good quality product is the use of mechanical dryers, and it also lowers the product mass and volume which improves the efficiency of storing, packaging and transportation. And hot air drying is commonly used in producing sweet potato dried chips which are pulverized into flours. Process operations for processing sweet potato dried chips and flour involve cleaning,trimming, washing, slicing, drying, milling, packing and storage. Link:

  • Ozone generators for pest control application

    Pesticides were commonly used for the pest control in farms since they have high and rapid insecticidal effects and enable us to increase yields of crops. However, the pesticides cause some problems: soil and groundwater pollution and residual chemicals in crops harmful to consumers. Recently, wider implementation of ozone sterilization in agriculture seems to be one of the promising techniques to secure the safety of foods.
