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.
Our lab is certified and equipped to serve our clients by identifying pathogens from samples obtained from soil, water and plants. A variety of tests can be offered for pathogens detection and pathogen identification in the lab. In addition, our scientists, with training in plant protection, will be available to provide consulting services to our clients for additional support. Our timely support can help you to prevent plant diseases from spreading or happening.
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...
Different sorts of food and agricultural products may contain various concentrations of nutrients, ranging from trace amounts to percentage levels. While most of these nutrient concentrations are healthy, some can be toxic to humans or animals. Bruker offers simple and effective nutrient testing solutions for the determination of nutritional elements in food and agricultural samples with routine and reliable nutrient analysis. All of our solutions enable fast, accurate and precise measurement of nutritional...

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...
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.
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...
We offer a wide range of instruments for testing of ingredients and finished aquafeeds. It includes compositional analysis as well as starch gelatinization characteristics and determination of degree of cook. Aquafeed producers are faced with the difficult task of producing to the same specifications week after week, with profitability, as raw materials and their prices constantly change. The only way to succeed is to have full knowledge of your raw materials and your process. Perten Instruments offers analysis...
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. %).
With Galaxy Scientific's FT-NIR feed analyzer, technicians with no prior knowledge of spectroscopy can quickly and easily load and analyze samples of feed and feed ingredients. With just a mouse click, proximate and other important parameters will be analyzed with one measurement and in less than a minute.
Using wireless sensor networks within the agricultural industry is increasingly common, as it provides many benefits to the farmer, impacting both the quality of the crops and the overall operating costs. WSN address the traditional monitoring problems related to oudoor areas, by removing the need of cables and of power sources in locations where no infrastructure is available. WSN are also specially suitable for temporary or problem-solving deployments, and to gather more numerous and more consistent data.
