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.

Cost-effective long term continuous measurement of CO2. Commercial greenhouse control systems measure and control temperature and CO2 concentration for optimum growth. Edinburgh Sensors’ low range CO2 Guardian NG is designed for long term continuous measurement of CO2 and is a cost effective solution for CO2 measurement in commercial greenhouse control systems. The Gascard NG CO2 is also widely used to detect CO2 in Pig and Poultry processing applications where high concentrations of CO2 are used.
Aquaculture is the fastest growing meat protein industry in the world. Microbial Discovery Group’s in-depth understanding of water quality, feed conversion, and disease prevention creates strong value-add partnerships.Similar to any other farming system, the aquaculture industry must confront environmental problems resulting from the industry’s intensification and commercialization. The need to produce and yield more tends to push these systems to the brink of failure. Success stems from understanding the aquaculture host, nutrition, water quality environment and the symbiotic microbial relationship of the direct fed probiotics. Microbial Discovery Group is active in solving problems facing the aquaculture industry. We can help with your water quality, FCR and overall yield needs – fast.
Drawing on our animal agriculture experience, we have a unique approach to aquaculture problems. Do you need some new ideas that work?

Intensive commercial shrimp farming began in the late 1960s led in part by technological advances and growing market demand. Today, shrimp farming is so intensive (in some cases close to 300 000 shrimps per hectare) that it requires industrially prepared shrimp feeds, fertilizing the ponds to stimulate the growth of organisms, aeration to prevent oxygen depletion and regular tidal water exchange. Solmax geomembranes have been used in some of the largest shrimp pond projects in the world. There are several key benefits of lining shrimp ponds with geomembranes. Durable and robust, the HDPE surface prevents weeds, grasses, mud and other obstructive contaminants from entering the pond. The HDPE substrate is known to reduce the suitability of the environment for bacteria thereby reducing the need for antibiotics. Geomembranes can also protect the slopes and banks from erosion and allow for easy detection and rapid removal of sediment and waste products.
Here are several factors to consider when deciding which type of geomembrane to use in a Shrimp Pond application:
- Stress crack resistance
- Tensile and elongation properties
- Tear and puncture resistance
- Duration of the project
- U.V exposure

The sugar cane is a plant which assimilates easily the solar radiation, having a efficiency near the 2% of energy conversion incidental in the biomass. This capacity increases the commercial possibilities to the profit of numerous products to extract, in most of the cases of higher value and economic importance than sugar. The cultivation of sugar cane presents itself as an opportunity of high value against other types of cultivations. Nevertheless, this crop also suffers the problems of water shortage. Taking into account this reality, and the efficiency and advantages of the drip irrigation practices already commented, this last one is an excellent way of improving in the agricultural exploitations where this crop is already introduced.

Measuring Oil and Water in Seeds using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. The breeding, cultivation and processing of seeds to obtain vegetable oil is a major global industry. The amount of oil in seeds and water in seeds are critical parameters which need to be understood at all stages of the industry from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Oils derived in this manner are used in foodstuffs, the manufacture of biofuels and as a chemical feedstock for many products.
