    Fertilizers boosting soil productivity for agriculture sector

    The principle fertilisers used to boost soil productivity are phosphate based. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) and Diammonium phosphate (DAP) are used for their ability to deliver Nitrogen and Phosphorus (both macronutrients) to soil as solid fertilisers. Phosphate rock is the raw material for production and is extracted from large deposits across Florida, the Southern Mediterranean into the Middle East (namely Morocco and Saudi Arabia) and on into Russia and China. To this rock, sulfuric acid is added producing phosphoric acid. This acid is then reacted with ammonia and elemental sulfur producing a sulfur enhanced fertiliser. During this process, the dust produced can potentially reach explosive levels.

  • 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.

  • Humic Acids for Aquaculture

    At fish breeding humic acids are known for long as an integral part of natural waters for the bio-logical improvement of the water quality. For this purpose peat based products were often used to optimize the pH with the containing humic acids. Huminc acids based products on base of lignite like HuminFeed® in the field of aquacultures are an object for research for many years yet. Within the research acitivities regarding the use of HuminFeed in aquacultures and ornamental fish breeding the following positive effects amongst others could be observed by the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Berlin:

  • Humic Acids for Animal Breeding

    Humic acidscan be successfully used as an additive in animal feed. Various research trials conducted worldwide have all showed positive results concerning the use of humic acids as an organic feed ingredient. Increases in liveweight of animals, improved growth rates, increased feed intakes and food conversion ratios and a stronger resistance against diseases are the common results of these trials. By improving immune function of animals, especially of young animals, humic acids also reduce the incidence of enteric disease and diarrhoea.

  • How to Make Fruit Leather by Tray Drying Oven

    Fruit leathers are restructured fruit made from fresh fruit pulp or a mixture of fruit juice concentrates and other ingredients after a complex operation that involves a dehydration step. Dehydration of fruit leather is a process which involves simultaneous heat and mass transfer. Various methods of drying and drying conditions affecting quality of fruit leathers have been previously studied. Traditional sun drying allows the production of fruit leather with a live color and translucent appearance. However, the drying time is long and dependent on environmental contamination. Today, conventional hot-air drying process is still the more common technology which has been used for making fruit leathers with a better color and flavor. And researches on hot air drying processes of popular fruit leathers are as follows. Link:
