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.

Maintaining a high quality sanitation program to prevent the ingestion of microbiologically contaminated fresh produce is of paramount importance to all food operations. Food contamination can irrevocably undermine consumer confidence, elevate irresponsible financial risk due to product recalls, or even result in loss of life and business. Even a single contaminated batch of food, one poor or erratic output can destroy your company’s reputation. Due to its broad-spectrum anti-microbial activity and versatility, chlorine dioxide is the ideal biocide for every biosecurity program. It may be employed in various applications such as process water, hard surface sanitation and post harvest wash.

AQUA Industrial Watertreatment is very experienced in the treatment of wastewater produced in the red meat industry. Many cattle, sheep and pig slaughterhouses throughout the world rely on AQUA Industrial Watertreatment technology. The waste water produced during the production of red meat is highly polluted with proteins, fats, carbohydrates, blood and meat particles. The processes used largely determine the degree of pollution, such as the slaughter of the cattle, the disposal, or further processing of the tripe with content. The hair removal process at the slaughter of pigs, for instance, is an important parameter. AQUA Industrial Watertreatment can advise you on treatment systems specifically tailored to your situation.

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.

Mørenot Aquaculture produces netting and nets in nylon and Dyneema ®, and delivers custom moorings, de-lousing tarpaulins, top nets, dead fish collectors and other equipment to farms. We also offer services such as wash, repair and coating/impregnation.
MøreNot is involved in continuous product development and has created innovative solutions, thanks to close cooperation with fish farmers and research institutions. The driving force is the fish farming industry`s challenges, such as larger values in the cages, increased profitability requirements, new regulatory requirements and more. Proximity to the customer is important in a global market.
MøreNot AS is ISO 9001:2008 accredited. Our products are accredited in accordance with NS 9415. Fish farmers have different working methods, therefore we offer tailor-made nets that are optimized to the individual operation, type of mooring and requirements. In practice, this means an easier life for fish farmers. All nets must be made in accordance with NS 9415.

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.

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.

To provide the proper conditions for silage or haylage storage in agriculture it is necessary to regularly monitor the formation of certain organic acids in it. For example, the formation of butyric acid can indicate spoiling of material. Formic or propionic acids can be artificially added to increase the nutritional quality. The same materials and some other biodegradable waists (agricultural residues, sewage sludge, etc.) are also used in biogas plants, where the fermentation process must be carefully monitored, in particular, by the determining the certain organic acids. The present method allows determination of some important organic acids like acetic, lactic, butyric, propionic, and formic in feedstuff additives, silage, haylage and in different biodegradable materials of biogas plants. Some other organic acids (oxalic, fumaric, etc.) can be also determined within this method.
