    Gas Sensing for Horticulture

    Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used...

  • Greenhouse Energy Management

    Why regulating your energy consumption is important A growth climate with the proper ratio of light, warmth and CO2 dosage ensures high production and quality. The most important sustainable source of growing light and warmth for your crop process, the sun, is not always sufficiently available. That’s why supplemental energy must be used. However, fossil energy sources, such as natural gas and petroleum are becoming ever scarcer and more expensive and they burden the environment. Efficient management of energy...

    Frost Protection for the Horticulture Industry

    The main benefits of the Toptex winter protection fabric can therefore be listed as creating barrier against wind chill and UV radiation, thereby nullifying temperature extremes, allowing the exchange of gases, which leaves the plants to breath and thereby avoids plant disorder. Furthermore, the Toptex winter protection fabric provides necessary light absorption while also allowing water absorption: whether laid on the ground or in the tunnel method, precipitation is carried within the fabric.

    Irrigation solutions for Cucumber crops

    Cucumbers come from the tropical areas of South-Asia and they grow in greenhouses in different climates. They are smooth and the colour, depending on the variety, can change from light green to dark green, reaching a yellowish colour when it is completely mature. They produce good outputs in warm and cold climates. Under extreme conditions ventilation and heating systems are necessary. The bigger producers are China, Turkey, Iran, United States, Japan and Russia.

  • Water quality monitoring for aquaculture industry

    A clean and pathogen free water source is essential to prevent infections from being introduced and spreading in a hatchery. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of water for inactivation of pathogens is recognized as a safe and effective method for use in the aquaculture industry. Continuous monitoring of water quality by measure of UV transmission (UVT) ensures the UV light is able to penetrate the water effectively and achieve the optimal dose.
