    High quality gas sensing solutions for agriculture

    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.

    Measurement of oil and water in seeds for agriculture sector

    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. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC instrument provides an extremely fast, simple-to-operate answer to the question “how much oil and water is present in my seeds?`

  • Microbial Solutions for Aquaculture

    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?

    Gas Sensing for Horticulture

    Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used to supply water to such greenhouses and the use of heaters to control the temperature and thereby extend the growing season. However, modern systems have been developed for Controlled Environment Horticulture that are designed to further optimise the growing conditions; with sophisticated computer controlled sensors, combined with advanced software models, that can control not only the temperature, light level and water, but also the level of nutrients, humidity, pH and CO2

  • Super Absorbent Water Management Agrotextiles

    Our Agrotas range of Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF) and converted products allow you to achieve optimum nurturing and growth conditions whilst effectively reducing overall water usage. Our unique fibrous technology creates new possibilities for the development of nonwoven fabrics that can be used as both temporary and long-term solutions, from hanging basket liners to commercial scale projects, even in areas of low water availability. Such fabrics are designed to achieve highly controlled delivery of water and nutrients to root systems, whilst significantly reducing evaporative loss and water seepage. SAF can also be dosed directly to the soil. Advantages: •Ease of handling and installation •Wide range of formats •Suitable for short-and long-term use •Reduced re-watering periods •Enhanced establishment times •Accurate, consistent nutrient distribution

  • Geomembranes for Shrimp Farming Ponds

    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
