The plants that we grow in our gardens are very demanding in terms of their hydration and nutrition needs.If we add to this that in many cases the weather conditions do not favour a defined variety, it turns the garden into a crop that requires a lot of attention.
The olive tree is one of the most traditional and old crop of the Mediterranean areas. The olive oil obtained has served for centuries as food and applications such as raw material to lighting and medical products. The actual situation is exceptional due to it high demand and profitability, thanks to the successful food campaign which stands out its therapeutic and nutritive properties. The crop surface is continuously growing. Spain and Italy are the main producers worldwide, followed by Greece, Turkey and...

Supplying water used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils is best done by lightweight and sustainable thermoplastic pipe and fitting systems.
Economical fish and shrimp production requires maximum nutritional efficiency from feed. Enzymes, including phytase, xylanase, cellulase, protease, lipase, and amylase increase the availability of nutrients, increase absorption of nutrients during digestion, increase fish growth rates, and assist in the survival and thriving of fish in the larval stage. Also, the use of lower cost feedstuffs is made possible for aquaculture with the use of added enzymes. Nutrients that are not digestible using the fish’s...
For several years, BENTOFOD has been successfully employed in feedstuff production. It is a fully natural bentonite with high adsorption power, and it is particularly effective against micotoxins. BENTOFOD is also added to feed products to ensure tougher and better looking pellets. From a nutritional point of view, BENTOFOD absorbs intestinal toxins, thus forming drier feces, without affecting the taste of feed products.
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
Different sorts of food and agricultural products may contain various concentrations of nutrients, ranging from trace amounts to percentage levels. While most of these nutrient concentrations are healthy, some can be toxic to humans or animals. Bruker offers simple and effective nutrient testing solutions for the determination of nutritional elements in food and agricultural samples with routine and reliable nutrient analysis. All of our solutions enable fast, accurate and precise measurement of nutritional...
To provide the proper conditions for silage or haylage storage in agriculture it is necessary to regularly monitor the formation of certain organic acids in it. For example, the formation of butyric acid can indicate spoiling of material. Formic or propionic acids can be artificially added to increase the nutritional quality. The same materials and some other biodegradable waists (agricultural residues, sewage sludge, etc.) are also used in biogas plants, where the fermentation process must be carefully monitored,...
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...
Nutraceuticals – dietary nutrients and supplements – are a growing industry worldwide. The search for new and more diverse nutritional materials at a lower cost has led many researchers to discover that algae is a very viable source for a wide variety of nutraceutical ingredients. As an example, it is now common to find Spirulina, as well as other algae strains, in nutritional drinks and foods (e.g. Odwalla Green Machine). A recent study(7) found that microalgae lipids could serve as a source of...
