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...

Tea plant is a shrub that develops in tropical or subtropical climates, coming from continental China, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Japan, Nepal, Austria and Kenya. Tea trees are cultivated in gardens, huge forests of small trees. The bigger producers worldwide are China and India; both produce the 50% of the total. The tea production is very competitive all around the world. Not technified irrigation systems, obsolete and the lack of water are the most important factors that reduce the tea production.
The Toptex protection fabric to safely cover potatoes is closely linked to a higher yield of the potato harvest due to reduced mass and starch losses. Its water shedding quality, which safely protects the potatoes from precipitation, characterizes the Toptex protection fabric for potato piles.
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...
The Toptex fabric is a high grade membrane to protect straw, sugar beet and potato harvests from frost and rain, thereby reducing the amount of clinging clay on beets or potatoes and efficiently leading to less cleaning water needed in the process. On top of this, dried harvests offer a higher yield for the farmer and better quality for the consumer.
Greater crop quality and yield
Forms a physical barrier between the plant and the environment, protecting it from plagues, insects, infections and dust.
Allows the seepage of the water, air and light needed for the growth of the plant.
Generates a micro-climate that promotes better yields and quality of the crops.
Minimizes or even eliminates the use of agro-chemicals in the crops. Ideal for organic or bio-rational producers.
Adds value to the crops in export markets.
Main crops: Melon, Pumpkin, Watermelon,...
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...
Use KISTERS solutions for gathering of meteorological, soil, and other timely crop data from the field. Easily remove the difficulties in comparing statistics and validating information collected for the monitoring and measuring of agricultural production.
TenCate Geotube technology is used for agriculture applications to reduce the waste in lagoons and utilize the contained nutrients for crops. This dewatering technology reduces the lagoon size by 50%, reduces labor and energy for land application by 50-70%, stores contained nutrients until needed for crops, provides higher quality flush water and reduces the odor and insect problems normally encountered. Over time, these solids dry in the dewatering containers, making the contained nutrients easier to transport...
Prevents underbrush growth
Adequately blocks the light that promotes the growth of underbrush.
Unlike the polyethylene paddings, it is permeable to water, air and nutrients maintaining the quality of the soil.
Prevents water accumulation on the padding surface.
Lasts up to 3 cycles when installed on the field, reducing labor.
Why efficient irrigation is important.
Water and fertilizers are essential to the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase...
Salt Out™ reduces or eliminates salinity stress in plant growth by sequestering sodium and chloride ions from penetrating plant root tissues. These conditions usually occur due to the buildup of salts as a result of fertilizer applications, irrigating with reclaimed, well or pond water, as well as salts deposited by ocean mist.
Salt Out™ coats the plant roots disallowing the update of the salts thereby enhancing nutrient uptake resulting in rapid improvement and stabilization of turf color.
Salt Out™ also...
Automatic crop and garden irrigation has never been easier! The Micro Rain line of travelers offers a cost effective, portable method for effective crop and garden irrigation. Famers and gardeners have many problems when trying to irrigation their acreages, such as dragging around hose, standing out and sweating in the sun, etc. These machines are designed to be extremely user friendly, have unparalleled performance, and operate completely unattended. They are a great alternative to in-ground irrigation systems...
EkoRE provides solar-powered irrigation services to help communities lower costs and access the water they need. Depending on the intended use, solar-powered irrigation systems can transport water from one location to another and draw water from underground sources, allowing farmers to irrigate their crops or provide communities access to potable drinking water. Using solar energy to generate electricity requires little to no operation and maintenance costs.
PINEYE® is a water-emulsifiable concentrate sticker. It is derived from pine trees and is non-toxic and non-ionic. Its anti-transpiration property releases a glossy biodegradable film through polymerization, which forms a coating on the surface of plants.

VYNCKE’s solutions allow the use of internal biomass fuels and can also handle a variety of the external biomass fuels available in your area.
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...
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,...
