`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...
Delta Hydronics Inc. is recognized as the leader in the Hydroponics Industry by designing, engineering and installing water heating and cooling systems for the hydroponic growing, harvesting and produce processing industries.
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,...
Your hydroponic growing media should do several things: wick and retain water, provide a stable pH, drain well and not fall apart so your system stays clean. Quick Plug North America offers the hydroponic grower several product lines with these characteristics. Our FlexiPlug® and FlexiTray® growing medium is optimized for all industry standard systems: Nutrient Film Technique, Ebb & Flow, Deep Water Raft, Aeroponic, and Drip. We have been working with hydroponic and aquaponic companies all over the...

Supplementing with fresh barley grass in a typical daily diet of a cow in mid lactation improves milk production, increases fertility and gives rise to a healthier animal requiring less veterinarian care. Barley grown hydroponically as a supplemental feed not only keeps dairy cattle healthy but can give premium prices from higher grades of butter fat in the milk. Each kilogram of barley fodder is equivalent nutritionally to 3kgs of lucerne. In one study of milk production, with a diet of barley fodder versus one...
Aptisens Digital or Mobile Multiple Ion Kit
Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution
Aptisens multiple ion HORTICULTURE calibration solutions
Sample Preparation:Typically, it is not a requirement to filter a hydroponics sample.
Calibration:Before use the multiple ion probe must be conditioned in Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution. Ensure the correct calibration solutions for a three-point calibration are set up on the Mobile meter or MeterLink....
Accuracy and ease of use make SM300 Soil Moisture Sensors well suited to irrigation applications. Readings can be used to optimise irrigation scheduling, or the SM300 can be installed as part of an automatic irrigation system. The sensor`s compact size allows it to be installed in plant pots or grow bags.
Ruminant livestock generate a significant proportion of anthropogenic GHG emissions, and thereby contribute to Climate Change. Ruminants such as cattle. sheep, goats and buffalo produce meat and milk through enteric fermentation – a digestive process in which microbes decompose and ferment food in the digestive tract or rumen. This process produces methane which is emitted via belching. The amount of methane produced is directly related to the type of food consumed and the level of intake, in addition to...
Following to the latest rules related to the alimentary health it is more and more necessary to keep the fishing boats and the breeding places clean and disinfected. fishing vessels are equipped with quite powerful hydraulic systems to operate winches, fishing equipment or the rudder.
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.
Improve your yields and control costs across your entire farm through automated oxygen monitoring and remote systems control. Continuous oxygen monitoring lets you fine-tune feed ratios to minimize fish stress, disease and mortality. Plus, save time and money with more efficient data collection and systems management.
