  • Irrigation solutions for Cucumber Crops

    Cucumbers come from the tropical areas of South-Asia and they grow in greenhouses in different climates. They are smooth and the colour, depending on the variety, can change from light green to dark green, reaching a yellowish colour when it is completely mature. They produce good outputs in warm and cold climates. Under extreme conditions ventilation and heating systems are necessary. The bigger producers are China, Turkey, Iran, United States, Japan and Russia.

  • Irrigation solutions for Citrics Crops

    Citrus fruits belong to rutaceus, they started 20 millions of years ago in the Asiatic South East. They grow in subtropical and tropical climates. The world production is estimated in approximately 100 millions of tons.

    Measurement of oil content in jatropha curcas seeds for energy/environment sector

    The use of biofuels as a substitute for mineral petroleum-based fuels is now an important part of the world economy. This substitution process both minimises the use of irreplaceable mineral petroleum reserves and reduces the addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Jatropha Curcas seeds are a high oil content seed and are of particular interest since the plants grow on almost any terrain and do not compete for agricultural land required for food crops. The maximisation of oil content is the driving force behind oil seed breeding programmes and the measurement of oil in Jatropha seeds is important in both trading and processing. In both of these cases, a simple and reliable means of measuring the oil content of the seeds is required.

  • Plant Breeding Research

    Biotechnology utilizes transgenic manipulation to change the genetic make-up of plants. Plant breeding is conducted world-wide for a variety of reasons, including improvement of nutritional value, economic opportunity, and environmental adaptation and preservation. Today, international development organizations assert that genetically engineered crops are an important factor in ensuring global health and food security, while simultaneously benefiting farmers, producers, and food manufacturing companies. As such, scientists have developed new higher-yielding varieties that are not only resistant to pests and diseases, but also drought-resistant, or easily adapted to different regional environments and growing conditions

  • Greenhouse Climate Management

    Why regulation of your greenhouse climate is important. As a horticultural entrepreneur, you understand better than anyone that the greenhouse climate has an immense influence on the condition of your crops. Air temperature, humidity, CO2 content and the proper balance of growing lights are essential conditions for a healthy and vigorous crop. By regulating your greenhouse climate in a proper manner, you reduce the chance of disease and plagues and you ensure the quality of your production. Moreover, you save precious energy.

  • Greenhouse Energy Management

    Why regulating your energy consumption is important A growth climate with the proper ratio of light, warmth and CO2 dosage ensures high production and quality. The most important sustainable source of growing light and warmth for your crop process, the sun, is not always sufficiently available. That’s why supplemental energy must be used. However, fossil energy sources, such as natural gas and petroleum are becoming ever scarcer and more expensive and they burden the environment. Efficient management of energy processes and CO2 dosage, therefore, are necessary for sustainable production and for your company profit.

  • Water treatment for horticulture

    Horticultural and greenhouse operations are facing increasing challenges in dealing with sanitation issues related to water treatment. Over the course of growing a crop, pathogenic microorganisms accumulate and algae flourish on moist surfaces posing a constant threat to plants and produce. The main challenges lie the areas of irrigation water, elimination of biofilm and algae control. Existing biocidal products, while effective in killing algae, are not effective in removing biofilm from the water lines. The ultimate solution would be to employ a biocide that is capable to control algae on greenhouse surfaces and strip the biofilm in irrigation lines. Chlorine dioxide has demonstrated to possess both properties.
