Television and radio news reports and regional forecasts have their role and are important sources of general information for managing an agricultural operation. But these reports probably don’t represent the conditions at your specific site – what about your local weather conditions?
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...
`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
EHS and sustainability professionals at IHS have served all kinds and sizes of organizations, worldwide, for decades. We pioneered the development of many sustainability information management solutions and continue to lead the way with new innovations.
Use KISTERS solutions for gathering of meteorological, soil, and other timely crop data from the field. Easily remove the difficulties in comparing statistics and validating information collected for the monitoring and measuring of agricultural production.
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 TracMap system is an in-cab GPS display unit that works with a cloud-based job management system called TracMap Online. Using TracMap Online, ag service providers and their customers can draw maps of the areas that need to be cultivated or treated, mark out hazards, and input job details (chemical, rate etc.). You can then send all the job information wirelessly to drivers.
Agriculture provides essential societal benefits: supply of food and commodities, economic development and employment. In turn, rural communities are under increasing pressure arising from increased productivity requirements, soil erosion and sealing, water scarcity, natural hazards and climate change.
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:

Wireless sensors for monitoring grain quantity in silos. Grain level is measured and volume or weight are calculated. Information is transmitted over a cellular network to a central server for viewing over the Internet. Additional information includes temperature, power supply status and cellular signal strength. Authorized users can browse and view the state of each silo.
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.
Improve your yields and control costs across your entire farm through automated oxygen monitoring and remote systems control. Continuous oxygen monitoring lets you fine-tune feed ratios to minimize fish stress, disease and mortality. Plus, save time and money with more efficient data collection and systems management.
Alfa Chemistry offers an extensive catalog of building blocks, reagents, catalysts, reference materials, and research chemicals in a wide range of applications. We supply E-11-Hexadecen-1-ol (Cas no:61301-56-2). More information please visit the website:
Increase your yields while reducing costs at your growing operation. In-Situ’s easy-to-use equipment keeps your hatchery running smoothly, even in harsh conditions. Our solutions simplify aquaculture management, boosting efficiency through faster, more accurate monitoring.
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...
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...
Animal farming is important because it provides food we eat and good jobs for more than half of the world. Animal waste is a natural byproduct of swine, poultry, and dairy farming operations and feedlot operations. While this waste is natural, it contains for example nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium that can pose health and environmental risks if not managed properly. Drylet’s ManureMagic® solves solids accumulation, crust formation, and odor issues in farms which results in healthier livestock,...
