`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...
Control Composting Odors, Naturally: Municipal sludge is often composted in indoor facilities or composting sheds. These areas create significant odor control challenges. Ecosorb products, either evaporated or atomized in concentrate form with nozzles or humidifying fans, control industrial odors even in very large composting facilities.
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...
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:
improve water use efficiency
reduce fertiliser application rates
enhance crop development
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.
Cambridge based Delta-T Devices specialises in instruments for environmental science, in particular: agronomy, plant physiology, eco-physiology, data logging, meteorology, soil moisture, solar energy studies and environmental monitoring.
Television and radio news reports and regional forecasts have their role and are important sources of general information for managing an agricultural operation. But these reports probably don’t represent the conditions at your specific site – what about your local weather conditions?
Abattoir & Slaughterhouse waste is a potential incubator of bacterial, viral, prion and parasitic pathogens, capable of infecting both animals and humans. A quick, cost effective and safe disposal method is essential in order to reduce the risk of disease following animal slaughter.
Farmers and researchers in the agricultural industry have used AMS sampling equipment for over 50 years. The AMS Step Probe, Soil Recovery Probes, and a variety of one and two-piece augers are used in the agricultural sampling market to obtaining disturbed samples at or near the surface and for boring to depths where more precise samples can be obtained. AMS now offers a variety of nematode sampling equipment, ATV-mounted PowerProbe rigs, and one and two-piece open-faced augers.
Agro-meteorological application (AgMet) are becoming more and more important. With a rising world population, agricultural production has to become more efficient. Water is precious and scarce, pesticides are expensive and harmful to the environment if they get into the soil.
Benefits: Adhere to compliance guidelines, improve efficiency and profitability. Analyse hazards, manage critical control points in production. Improve scheduling and planning of testing through automation. It has never been more critical to maintain quality standards and safety guidelines than in the modern food and beverages industry. With so many possibilities for incidents of food contamination, compliance with strict regulations is controlled demanded more now than ever.
Fodder Solutions has fresh fodder feeding solutions catering for all sizes – from hobby farmers with a small herd right up to large commercial installations. Our systems come in the form of both transportable units and more permanent systems feeding thousands of kgs per day.
Goats have proven to benefit enormously from a diet of fresh fodder. With the global demand for goat meat and milk on the rise, goats are becoming more important to local economies than ever before. Fodder Solutions has several clients who are feeding fodder to reduce feeding costs, improved meat and milk quality, increase in milk yield and overall animal health.
The method enables fast quantitative determination in feeds, mixed fodders, and raw materials of the following amino acids: arginine, lysine, tyro sine, phenylalanine, histidine, leucine and iso -leucine (total), methionine, valine, proline, alanine, glycine, cystine, tryptophan, aspartic and glutamic acids.
Since during the sample decomposition asparagine and glutamine are hydrolyzed to aspartic and glutamic acids, respectively, the content of these two acids represents the total content of both the acids and...
The technical directives and regulatory requirements specify the total content and relative contents of fructose, glucose and saccharose in juices, nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages (incl. wines and winemaking materials), fruit and vegetable products, honey, and bioactive food additives.
