agriculture soil Applications

  • Soil Analysis for Agriculture and Soils

    Field portable spectrometers are widely used for geologic remote sensing and mineral analysis applications. Recently, geologists have recognized that these same methods of reflectance spectroscopy have far reaching applications beyond remote sensing. Increasingly more applications in the geological science disciplines are surfacing, such as determining the composition of clay-rich soils for swell potential, and assessment and monitoring quality in cement manufacturing throughout the entire process—from characterizing raw materials, to quantitative analysis of the ground cement product, on through quality control of the materials entering the `feeder` and molten clinker (the apparatus used in the final cement product).

    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.

    Water treatment solutions for agriculture industry

    The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. This requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. Agriculture water treatment and waste water treatment is essential to prevent bacteria, fungus, while reducing pesticide and nutrient pollution degradation of farmland used in commercial agriculture and horticulture operations. Genesis Water Technologies can engineer, build and provide sustainable agriculture water treatment and wastewater reuse systems as well as specific soil mediums for both greenhouse nurseries and commercial farming operations.

  • Data analysis and visualization tools for agriculture

    Given the large areas and relatively shallow soil depths associated with agriculture, the industry standard has long been two-dimensional analysis. However, over the past decades many of C Tech’s customers have discovered the advantages of analyzing and understanding soil properties on a true 3D volumetric basis. Nutrient concentrations, plant available water and stratigraphy are examples of data which are best addressed on a volumetric basis.

    Hydroponics

    `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 organic matter into basic nutrients that plants feed on. Water dissolves these nutrients which allows uptake by the roots. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

  • Monoammonium Phosphate(MAP)

    MAP, with its low pH levels, is best used for high-alkaline soils. It is an ideal starter fertilizer because MAP contains less ammonia-nitrogen than DAP, reducing potential seed damage.MAP has been an important phosphate fertilizer for growers around the world for many years. It is completely water soluble, generally applied in the granular crystal form and used in the formulation of suspension fertilizers. As a granular material, it mixes well and frequently serves as an ingredient in bulk-blended fertilizers.

  • Greenhouse Irrigation Management

    Why efficient irrigation is important. Water and fertilizers are essential to the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase your crop performance and your profit. Water solutions for your horticultural company With sustainable automation solutions from Hoogendoorn, you can regulate the irrigation in your greenhouse and in your open field in a targeted manner. The innovative iSii process computer precisely coordinates the dosage of various water sources such as rainwater, well water and drain water with the demands of the crop. Wherever possible, iSii also regulates the complete recirculation and disinfection of drain water. The advanced software anticipates changing conditions pro-actively. For example, the frequency and duration of irrigation sessions are adjusted prior to times of more or less sunshine. Based on the measured water intake of the plants and the water content of the soil or substrate, the irrigation can be tailored even more precisely to the growth process

  • Geomembranes for Fish Pond Applications

    In either decorative fish ponds or fish farming ponds, HDPE geomembranes and Fish-Grade PVC are used to avoid soil contact and minimize water contamination. Geomembranes prevent both waste accumulation in the soil and leaching of harmful chemicals into the ponds such as ammonia, hydrogen sulphide, acidic constituents, iron and other potentially stressful compounds. This protection improves fish growth while reducing the risk of disease. HDPE geomembranes also reduce erosion, allow for easy removal of wastes within the ponds, provide a smooth harvesting surface, and offer long-term U.V protection in tropical installations. Solmax geomembranes have been used in a variety of fish ponds applications whether for decorative or farming purposes.

    Here are several factors to consider when deciding which type of geomembrane to use in a fish pond application:

    • Stress crack resistance
    • Tensile and elongation properties
    • Tear and puncture resistance
    • Duration of the project
    • UV exposure

    Please contact us for any technical support or to speak with a sales representative.
