Accuracy and ease of use make SM300 Soil Moisture Sensors well suited to irrigation applications. Readings can be used to optimise irrigation scheduling, or the SM300 can be installed as part of an automatic irrigation system. The sensor`s compact size allows it to be installed in plant pots or grow bags.
`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...
Agro-meteorological application (AgMet) are becoming more and more important. With a rising world population, agricultural production has to become more efficient. Water is precious and scarce, pesticides are expensive and harmful to the environment if they get into the soil.
What deteriorates the physical, aerobic and water condition of the soil? Soil compaction occurs when soil particles are pressed together, reducing pore space between them. Heavily compacted soils contain few large pores, less total pore volume and consequently a greater density. A compacted soil has a reduced rate of both water infiltration and drainage. This happens because large pores are more effective in moving water downward through the soil than smaller pores.
The soil is an important natural renewable resource that for a long period of time is subject to erosion and intensive exploitation, which leads to the loss of fertile qualities. But with a reasonable technology of cultivation and periodic soil enrichment with the necessary elements, it is possible to maintain soil health. The soil provides environmental conditions for numerous microorganisms and serves as a medium for the growth of plants, thus providing plants with a place for development, nutrients, and water...
It is hard to believe, but most of the chemical, physical and biological phenomena occurring in nature depend on the humidity of the environment. As concerns the soil, humidity is not a stable feature of soil cover. It is influenced by many factors: meteorological conditions, groundwater level, mechanical soil composition, nature of vegetation, etc. Nevertheless, soil moisture plays an important role in the food chain, provides the growth and development of plants that ultimately become an animal and human...
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:

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.
Globalization puts ever-increasing demands on the food and agriculture industry. Highly sensitive analytical instrumentation is key for reliable monitoring of food products along the food chain starting from agricultural production over food processing and packaging to distribution and consumption. Analytik Jena analytical solutions help you meet industry standards during both development of new products or quality control assessment.
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) offers the ability to analyze soil samples with little sample preparation, provides detection of all elements in the periodic table, and has a large dynamic range (ppm to wt. %).
Zysense Nitric Oxide instruments are widely used in agricultural applications. It is used by leading scientists at USDA, and most agricultural research institutions, plant biology testing, and evaluate the role of Nitric oxide on plant growth and development.
New research has shown the role of nitric oxide releasing molecules like Sodium Nitroprusside and its role in saline soils.
NOA 280i is also used in natural juice research and its role on blood pressure reduction.
Several studies have been done beet and...

Supplying water used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils is best done by lightweight and sustainable thermoplastic pipe and fitting systems.
Ruminant livestock generate a significant proportion of anthropogenic GHG emissions, and thereby contribute to Climate Change. Ruminants such as cattle. sheep, goats and buffalo produce meat and milk through enteric fermentation – a digestive process in which microbes decompose and ferment food in the digestive tract or rumen. This process produces methane which is emitted via belching. The amount of methane produced is directly related to the type of food consumed and the level of intake, in addition to...
