  • Breeding

    It all start with breeders. The development of new cultivars is perhaps the most important means of improving quality traits and yields, and dramatic improvements have been achieved in the “green revolution”.

    Extensive testing and analysis is a key factor of success when selecting and evaluating new varieties, and Perten Instruments has worked with breeding companies for many years. The fact that the speed and quality of analysis is important for the development time and the quality of new line development has been a cornerstone in our product development.

    Our products and solutions give breeders unique opportunities to bring new, innovative cultivars to the market.

    Measurement of oil and water in seeds for agriculture sector

    The breeding, cultivation and processing of seeds to obtain vegetable oil is a major global industry. The amount of oil in seeds and water in seeds are critical parameters which need to be understood at all stages of the industry from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Oils derived in this manner are used in foodstuffs, the manufacture of biofuels and as a chemical feedstock for many products. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC instrument provides an extremely fast, simple-to-operate answer to the question “how much oil and water is present in my seeds?`

    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

    `A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down organic matter into basic nutrients that plants feed on. Water dissolves these nutrients which allows uptake by the roots. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

  • Greenhouse Information Management

    Why managing company information is important Managing your horticultural company demands insight into various processes. For the cultivation of your crop, you collect information about the greenhouse climate and water and energy use. In addition, you als to deal with data about labor productivity, costs, inventory and planning – among other things. Good control of production and quality, along with the management of costs and yields are essential for your company profit. This means that all the information from the various sources must be structured, stored and displayed in an orderly manner. Only then is targeted information analysis possible in order to arrive at an assessment and improvement.
