`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...
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.
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.
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
Prediction of minimum temperature and frost damage is a common method and important application in the field of agriculture like outdoors crops growth. In particular the areas where vegetation can be exposed to low temperatures, frost can be disastrous for young plants or fruits. Heat loss measurements inside a greenhouse is a similar application to control the temperature of the crop. When the IR radiation exchange is measured with a pyrgeometer, special screens can be closed when temperature are expected to...
The mercerisation of cotton materials yields large quantities of weak caustic soda. Recovery of mercerising lye by means of our Körting evaporation technology developed specially for this process results in an immense saving of costs and a minimised impact on the environment. When combined with a specially co-ordinated lye cleaning system the result is a nearly 100% recovery of lye.
Ammonia (NH3) is formed from the breakdown of urea in slurry and manure, and hence this is the main source of NH3 emission in the UK. High levels of NH3 emissions can cause a large amount of environmental damage to vegetation. As well as the outward environmental impact, high NH3 concentrations in and around livestock enclosures have a detrimental effect on the health and well-being of the animals.
Angel*Haus Condominium, a condo community in Purgatory’s Durango Mountain Resort, Colorado, has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the condominum has improved the water quality, removed the need to buy and store salt and substantially reduced its water costs.
Angelhaus Condominium is a modernised 40 unit building containing individually owned one, two and three bedroom units. Located at the...
