  • Microbial Solutions for Plant Health and Growth

    Microbial Discovery Group excels in identifying antibacterial, antifungal and growth promotion properties to improve plant health and growth.

    Feeding the ever growing population will become increasingly difficult as resources continue to become constrained or diminished.  Microbial technologies will help to fill the gap through a variety of differing mechanisms including nutrient creation or release, pathogen and pest resistance, plant growth promotion and protection of the plant against environmental stresses.  MDG has library screening technologies to help you find the virtual needle in the haystack when seeking biological solutions.  We have the capabilities, capacity and commitment to provide the biological wonders that will help feed the world.

    Nutritional content of rice and pearl millet for agriculture sector

    Hidden hunger is caused by a lack of micronutrients - vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin A, Zinc and Iron) which are essential to good health. Micronutrient malnourishment can cause stunting and blindness in children and can lower IQ as well as increasing risks for mothers and infants during childbirth and lowering resistance to disease in both children and adults. The Energy dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) analyser X-Supreme8000 can screen whole grain rice samples for concentration of iron and zinc. EDXRF is faster and more cost efficient with the low cost of around 2 cents per sample compared to around $20 with current analytical methods

  • Ozone generators for pest control application

    Pesticides were commonly used for the pest control in farms since they have high and rapid insecticidal effects and enable us to increase yields of crops. However, the pesticides cause some problems: soil and groundwater pollution and residual chemicals in crops harmful to consumers. Recently, wider implementation of ozone sterilization in agriculture seems to be one of the promising techniques to secure the safety of foods.

  • Laboratory Solutions for the agriculture & farming

    Many states have governmental departments with diverse responsibilities in regulatory monitoring such as animal health; weights and measures; gas and oil inspection; seed and fertilizer inspection, feed analysis, crop and livestock statistics, monitoring agricultural environmental issues, as well as research and development. The key to success is a data management system powerful enough to handle all the data measured, reported and analyzed, and flexible enough to match the workflows, regulations and rules specific to the agriculture and farming segment.

  • 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

  • Irrigation

    "maximizing water utilization" By reducing friction & surface tension, TDS, salts, Sodium Absorption Ratio, balancing pH & Calcium/Magnesium Ratios, bicarbonates thus maximizing bio-availibility of nutrients and oxygen to plants and improving soil penetration and soil moisture retention, "mellower soils" & healthier plants; and reducing operational costs by saving water/energy, scale build-up, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and maintenance. Magnation water treatment, like the Magnation Scale Reduction System, creates additional collisions of ions that precipitate CaCO3, and it changes the free gas content in water that leads to improved crop yields. These mechanisms create many applications for the use of MW, with the use of MW having the potential to become more commonly used in the irrigation of crops, as drinking water for livestock and to prevent and remove scale buildup in hydrologic infrastructure. With many studies showing increases in crop yields & animal/soil health.
