Ultraviolet disinfection systems in hatcheries, fish farms and aquariums have enabled operators to farm or keep greater yields of healthier stock.
Water quality is key to commercial aquaculture operators. Poor water quality will have an impact on the ability to successfully hatch eggs, raise juvenile fish and grow strong, healthy stock, so naturally a large investment is made in water cleansing systems. Chemical methods, while effective at killing some water-borne microbes, can leave harmful by-products in the...
Greenhouse-grown plants represent an increasingly important segment of the horticulture industry. Greenhouse operations produce a variety of annuals and perennials in a controlled environment. These plants are then sold at independent garden centers and mass merchants before becoming fixtures in consumers’ homes and commercial landscapes. Studies have shown that plants can reduce stress, clean air, decrease utility bills and improve the overall value of a community. Greenhouse Management is the leading...
The wholesale nursery market plays a vital role in the green-industry supply chain. With hundreds of thousands of acres planted across North America, nursery operations of varying sizes provide containerized and field-grown trees, shrubs and perennials. Nursery growers make significant capital investments in their crops, many of which are in the ground or in containers for years before they’re ready for market. These nursery products grace home and commercial landscapes, city parks and urban forests....
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...
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...
UV disinfection is popular for treating water used in horticultural applications, as it introduces no chemicals or by-products which can stress plants and lower crop quality.
Leading OEMs manufacture specific UV systems to continually disinfect the water being used in various soil based and soil-less plant cultivation techniques, such as hydroponic systems. UV disinfection does not affect the pH or chemistry of the water and neutralises many organisms problematic to commercial horticulturalists such as fungi,...
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...
Nicolon Shade Cloth Fabrics shade horticultural plants grown in commercial nurseries and greenhouses. Manufactured in widths ranging from six to 17 feet (1.80 to 5.20m), Nicolon shade cloth fabrics add beneficial cover for agricultural crops and livestock and can also function as industrial debris nets.
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.
