    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.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the horticulture industry

    With a number of units specially designed and developed for hydroponics and agriculture, atg UV’s treatment systems eliminate all types of water borne micro-organisms. atg UV Technology’s leading Ultraviolet treatment systems are used in a number of key areas to vastly reduce the risk of product rejection, crop failure and the spread of disease. With a number of “emerging” pathogens now displaying increased resistance to traditional methods of disinfection, Ultraviolet treatment is now the preferred and accepted method of disinfection over traditional chemical methods.

    Meteorological sensors for agricultural meteorology

    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.

  • Drinking water solutions for the DBP formation potential

    Problem: Drinking water plants that use chlorine for disinfection must ensure organic matter is removed before chlorination to limit the formation of harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs), most commonly Trihalomethanes (THMs) and Haloacetic acids (HAA5).

  • Water quality monitoring for dairy industry

    Continuous monitoring of process streams and waste streams in a dairy industry setting can provide various benefits to the operators. One major benefit is that it is possible to minimize product lost to the waste stream by means of reliable online monitoring of organics (TOC) at various points in the plant. In addition, due to the nitrogen deficient nature of milk wastes it is possible to optimize ammonia dosing by accurately and continuously monitoring the organic loads entering the waste stream.

  • 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

  • Fertigation Monitoring /Nutrient Concentration Monitoring

    We have optimized six and four ion probes for horticultural applications. For growers, these products offer a “lab-in-hand” solution — a quick and affordable way to maintain the proper nutrient balance required for better yield, improved flavor and color, greater disease resistance and longer shelf life. Controlling the concentration of nutrients in liquids is a vital step in the fertigation process. Today, nutrient levels are tested daily, most commonly by measuring pH and EC, and dispatching samples to offsite labs for analysis. This traditional testing protocol is time-consuming and costly, and delays access to information on potential yield-threatening nutrient levels.

  • Water quality monitoring for aquaculture industry

    A clean and pathogen free water source is essential to prevent infections from being introduced and spreading in a hatchery. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of water for inactivation of pathogens is recognized as a safe and effective method for use in the aquaculture industry. Continuous monitoring of water quality by measure of UV transmission (UVT) ensures the UV light is able to penetrate the water effectively and achieve the optimal dose.
