    Instruments and analyzers for agriculture minimum temperature

    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.

  • Plant Breeding Research

    Biotechnology utilizes transgenic manipulation to change the genetic make-up of plants. Plant breeding is conducted world-wide for a variety of reasons, including improvement of nutritional value, economic opportunity, and environmental adaptation and preservation. Today, international development organizations assert that genetically engineered crops are an important factor in ensuring global health and food security, while simultaneously benefiting farmers, producers, and food manufacturing companies. As such, scientists have developed new higher-yielding varieties that are not only resistant to pests and diseases, but also drought-resistant, or easily adapted to different regional environments and growing conditions

  • Aeration of Crayfish Basins

    Crayfish is a very demanding species when it comes to the quality of water. One of the most important facts is the sufficient content of oxygen concentration in water. Actually the crayfish is just as demanding as salmonoids about oxygen content. During warmer seasons oxygen content of the water should be at least 5 mg/l (oxygen saturation at least 50 %). In the winter the crayfish can adapt to short periods with 2 – 3 mg/l content if all the other environmental conditions are favorable.

    Crayfish basins are rather small usually, so Waterix AIRIT® Micro is an excellent choice. The device is lightweight but boasts exceptionally high operating efficiency and output. AIRIT® Micro ensures oxygen content throughout the crayfish basin is always in excess of 5 mg/l. This enables the crayfish maturity period to be perfect in respect to oxygen content.AIRIT® Micro can be used throughout the year or when the water starts to stratify.

    Irrigation solutions for Potato crops

    The potato started in the Andes and it is one of the crops of greater importance Worldwide. The potato came to Europe in the XVI century by two different ways: one was in Spain around 1570 and the other was by the British Islands among 1588 and 1593, from where it was expanded to the rest of Europe. The annual production is of 300 million tons of the fresh tuber expanded in 19.5 millions of hectares planted. Asia and Europe are the regions with bigger production worldwide, with more than the 80% of the production. Today China is the bigger producer. The Asiatic consume reach nearly half of the world consume, however it excessive population indicates that the annual production by person is just of 25 kg. in 2005. European is the bigger consumer of potato.

  • Production of Algae for Fish Larvae Feed

    Intensive use of extractive fishing is threatening important species and forces governments to impose temporary stoppages whilst the profitability of fishing fleets is decreasing and ship-owners are seeing their livelihoods threatened.

    As a result of this and in order to satisfy the continually growing demand for fish to feed the world’s population, it has been necessary to breed different types of fish, crustaceans and molluscs in fish farms.

    Fish larvae feed on multicellular microorganisms -Rotifera and Artemia-, which in turn require a balanced and natural feeding on microalgae.  This is the only way to achieve healthy farmed fish which compare favourably with those found in the wild.

  • 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 solutions for Sugar Cane crops

    The sugar cane is a plant which assimilates easily the solar radiation, having a efficiency near the 2% of energy conversion incidental in the biomass. This capacity increases the commercial possibilities to the profit of numerous products to extract, in most of the cases of higher value and economic importance than sugar. The cultivation of sugar cane presents itself as an opportunity of high value against other types of cultivations. Nevertheless, this crop also suffers the problems of water shortage. Taking into account this reality, and the efficiency and advantages of the drip irrigation practices already commented, this last one is an excellent way of improving in the agricultural exploitations where this crop is already introduced.
