    Mushroom Growing Netting for the Crop Farming Industry

    The world’s population consumes an enormous amount of mushrooms each day. To meet this demand, highly efficient and hygienic production methods are required to deliver quality mushrooms on-time. Because of their proven performance and reliability, TenCate materials have become the mushroom and composting industry standard for pulling nets.

    For instance, the indoor composting process for mushroom substrate uses a lot of energy. High energy prices have pushed composting companies to look for ways to reduce costs. They have found a solution in TenCate pulling nets. Their high airflow performance combined with high pulling strength, low weight, thin material and limited narrowing effect significantly increase yield and quality while reducing energy cost and down time.

    TenCate Nicolon nets are used in mushroom growing, composting and other related applications. A long term knowledge and experience prove that TenCate nets are a reliable and tested contribution to your results.

    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 Date crops

    The date palm trees are from the Palmaceae family. They come from the Persian Gulf and they grow in the arid and subtropical regions. The main producers are Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq and Algeria (source: FAO). Its fruit, the date, make bunches of until 25 kg of mature fruit and it reaches it whole development in several months. It has an oval shape, it is smooth and with a long and grooved seed. In some countries, the fruits are covered with paper bags to protect them from the elements (rain, dust) and the rodents.

    Water filtration systems for sub-surface drip irrigation - 2

    Subsurface drip Irrigation Systems (SDI) are a suitable agronomic option for all type of crops:  woody crops (almond tree, vineyard, olive tree, pistachio tree, peach tree, etc.) and extensive crops (corn, vetch, barley, alfalfa, etc.). The SDI is an irrigation technique that allows the supply of water and nutrients in a localized way under the surface. This fact conditions and optimizes the growing of roots and the development of the plant. This practice makes possible a more efficient use of the water, energy and fertilizers, becoming the alternative with best results from an economic, agronomic and ecologic point of view.

  • Animal Manure Drying

    Vulcan® Systems Technology was developed to address the growing problems produced by the oldest and most natural fertilizer in the world...manure. Historically, animal manures have been handled as a solid and were either directly deposited to pastures or collected along with shelter bedding and applied to land as a crop nutrient. As the concentration of animals on farms increased, the need for more efficient methods of manure management developed.

  • 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.

  • Poultry Manure Drying

    Vulcan® Systems technology was developed to address the growing problems produced by one of the oldest and most natural fertilizers in the world...manure. For centuries, poultry manure has been handled as a solid, being directly deposited onto pastures, collected with poultry bedding, and applied as a nutrient for crops. However, as the number of poultry farms has grown, a need has developed for more efficient manure management. The process of transporting poultry manure to cropland, while still in raw form, has become expensive in comparison to transporting nitrogen or phosphorus as a dry fertilizer. Until recently, poultry manure had not been regulated strictly, despite negative environmental impacts, causing conflicts over whom is responsible for pollution caused by poultry manure and leading to newly introduced regulations. Manure is to be an expected by-product in the poultry industry, that when left untreated, provides no substantial benefit.
