  • Measuring Ion Concentrations in Plant Tissue

    Measuring Ion Concentrations in Plant Tissue

    Required Apparatus:

    • Aptisens Digital or Mobile Multiple Ion Kit
    • Weighing scales
    • Liquid measurement device e.g. graduated cylinder
    • Bowl for stirring
    • Spoon for stirring
    • Funnel
    • Filter paper / muslin
    • Conical flask / vessel

    Required chemicals:

    • Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution
    • Aptisens Plant Tissue multiple ion calibration solutions
    • Deionised water

    Sample Preparation:
    This preparation can be applied to any plant tissue. Take a sample of lettuce and remove any soil but do not wash the plant tissue as doing so may reduce the number of ions in sample. Weigh this sample and record (say 100 g). Macerate the plant tissue in a blender and add a known amount of hot deionised water to the sample to extract the nutrients. For example, dilute the sample two-fold (200 mL), three-fold (300 mL) or five-fold (500 mL). Ensure all the plant tissue is covered with water and leave to sit for approximately 30 min with some stirring. The sample then needs to be filtered.

    Set up a funnel with folded filter paper in a conical flask or any vessel that can hold a funnel. Pour the plant tissue and water into the funnel and allow the mixture to filter. Collect the filtrate.

    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. Follow the instructions for calibration and proceed to take a sample reading when the calibration data is ‘very good’ or ‘good’ for all ions.

    Sample Reading:
    Place the probe in the plant tissue filtrate and ‘Take a Sample’ reading. The concentrations for each ion will be displayed in ppm or mmol / L.

    Remember to multiply these concentrations by the dilution factor.

    Probe Care:
    After taking your reading be sure to remove the sensors from the solution as quickly as possible, rinse with deionised water and replace the cap of the probe

    Teraflo Liquid polymer water saving technology. Save Water

    TeraFlo® significantly reduces watering requirements per cycle of irrigation while maintaining adequate moisture for good plant health and growth. Due to its filtration properties, excessive moisture also flows through the soil thereby preventing environments for fungal growth. It draws moisture from the air and the surface and attaches itself to the plant roots from sources not previously available. It provides proper wetting and drainage in non-soil media as well as eliminating unusable water. TeraFlo® dramatically improves the ability of rainfall and water to easily penetrate the soil surface and gain access to the root zone. By encapsulating the soil particles, it significantly decreases friction allowing for easy and rapid water penetration and filtration into any soil condition; hardpan, compacted or otherwise. It improves the efficiency of all applied additives (pesticides, insecticides nutrients, etc) preventing rapid leaching of these products. This increases their effectiveness and reduces over all application quantities making additive usage far more cost effective. Holding organophosphates in the soil reduces the leaching of these toxins which significantly improves their performance. The product has a special affinity to nitrogen thereby reducing nitrate leaching protecting against groundwater contamination. TeraFlo® prevents the buildup of soluble sodium salts contained in fertilizers and water sources thereby reducing stress conditions. Continual use will keep the root zone free of sodium salts. TeraFlo® increases microbial activity which aids in root cell buildup resulting in faster uptake of nutrients. TeraFlo® reduces soil erosion from in-furrow irrigation and significantly reduces nitrogen loss in head ditch irrigation systems. TeraFlo® improves drip applied fumigant systems allowing for a more efficient and longer release system. Teraflo provides lubrication to pump parts, valves, and other parts of pressurized water systems preventing products in the irrigation piping from sticking to the walls, thus reducing drip and irrigation head clogging. This reduces downtime, repair costs, and maintenance.

  • 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.

  • Water systems for municipal sector

    MAGNATION water and energy-saving systems makes dollars and sense. It reduces water needs by 10 to 30%, a cost saving that feeds directly into the city’s budget. It adds further savings by reducing scaling, a major source of costly maintenance. Providing water to parks, ball fields, shrubbery, grass, flowers, and trees represents only a fraction of the load put on a city’s water budget. Add to that the recurring cost of pipe replacement from scaling. These dollars that could have been supporting city services and programs are lost to watering and maintenance demands. MAGNATION water and energy-saving systems pays itself back virtually overnight, reversing the flow of money back into the city budget through substantial savings. It employs magnetic science to create healthier, hydrating water that carries benefits for plants and humans alike. It fits the spirit of this planet’s future: doing more with less. When magnetized by the The Magnation Industrial NEXT GENERATION and BIG BLUE Pump & Irrigation systems take less water to get the job done better, providing solid fiduciary results.

  • Water filtration systems for sub-surface drip irrigation

    It is an irrigation system that uses a main network to distribute the filtered and pressurized water to the emitting pipes under the surface of the terrain and together the crop line. The emitters in line supply a unique flow rate by each emitting point that is among the interval of 0,6-8l/h. The volume of water supplied under the surface of the soil (nearest the plants) generates a spatial distribution of the same named “dump bulb”. The shape and size of this “dump bulb” is different from the surface localized irrigation.

    Hydroponics

    `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.

    Salt OUT The solution to your salinity issues!

    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 contains a surfactant to ensure proper soil penetration and even moisture distribution throughout the root zone. It reduces water usage by 20% or greater.

  • Data analysis and visualization tools for agriculture

    Given the large areas and relatively shallow soil depths associated with agriculture, the industry standard has long been two-dimensional analysis. However, over the past decades many of C Tech’s customers have discovered the advantages of analyzing and understanding soil properties on a true 3D volumetric basis. Nutrient concentrations, plant available water and stratigraphy are examples of data which are best addressed on a volumetric basis.

  • Irrigation

    "maximizing water utilization" By reducing friction & surface tension, TDS, salts, Sodium Absorption Ratio, balancing pH & Calcium/Magnesium Ratios, bicarbonates thus maximizing bio-availibility of nutrients and oxygen to plants and improving soil penetration and soil moisture retention, "mellower soils" & healthier plants; and reducing operational costs by saving water/energy, scale build-up, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and maintenance. Magnation water treatment, like the Magnation Scale Reduction System, creates additional collisions of ions that precipitate CaCO3, and it changes the free gas content in water that leads to improved crop yields. These mechanisms create many applications for the use of MW, with the use of MW having the potential to become more commonly used in the irrigation of crops, as drinking water for livestock and to prevent and remove scale buildup in hydrologic infrastructure. With many studies showing increases in crop yields & animal/soil health.

  • Ozone generator

    The irrigation with ozonized water systems consists on providing a greater amount of oxygen to the root arriving free of virus, bacteria, fungi, seaweed, spores and any other microorganism, reason why it is obtained a faster growth than the habitual one, with more aliveness and force as well as more productivity. This system is very beneficial for the irrigation, such as fruit trees, vineyards, and cultures in general obtaining the prevention of diseases in the plants. Ozone has an oxidizing power greater than the Oxygen one, so for that reason it improves the respiratory process at cellular level. The direct germicidal action of Ozone is also well-known against all type of microorganisms, as much fungi as bacteria and virus.
