  • 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.

  • Automated Control Systems for Aquaculture

    Argus is an automated control systems pioneer with over thirty years of leadership and innovation in control technology. We were among the first to use computers for integrating the control of greenhouse environments and irrigation systems. Today our systems are used in horticulture and biotechnology research facilities, universities, aquaculture and aquaponics, and many other custom control applications at sites throughout the world.

    High quality gas sensing solutions for agriculture

    Cost-effective long term continuous measurement of CO2. Commercial greenhouse control systems measure and control temperature and CO2 concentration for optimum growth. Edinburgh Sensors’ low range CO2 Guardian NG is designed for long term continuous measurement of CO2 and is a cost effective solution for CO2 measurement in commercial greenhouse control systems. The Gascard NG CO2 is also widely used to detect CO2 in Pig and Poultry processing applications where high concentrations of CO2 are used.

    Gas Sensing for Horticulture

    Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used to supply water to such greenhouses and the use of heaters to control the temperature and thereby extend the growing season. However, modern systems have been developed for Controlled Environment Horticulture that are designed to further optimise the growing conditions; with sophisticated computer controlled sensors, combined with advanced software models, that can control not only the temperature, light level and water, but also the level of nutrients, humidity, pH and CO2

  • 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.
