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.
The onion is cultivated all around the world and it is one of the oldest vegetables. The world production is of 67 millions tons of bulbs (FAO, 2008). The countries of higher production of the world include United States, India, China, Pakistan, Turkish, Russia, Iran, Spain and Mexico. The onion is cultivated in 175 countries in mild, tropical and subtropical climatic conditions. The onion is basically a crop of fresh season.
Subsurface drip Irrigation Systems (SDI) are a suitable agronomic option for all type of crops: woody crops (almond tree, vineyard, olive tree, pistachio tree, peach tree, etc.) and extensive crops (corn, vetch, barley, alfalfa, etc.). The SDI is an irrigation technique that allows the supply of water and nutrients in a localized way under the surface. This fact conditions and optimizes the growing of roots and the development of the plant. This practice makes possible a more efficient use of the water, energy...
For this propose, AZUD has developed innovative wastewater treatment plants AZUD WW MBBR (Moving Bed Bio Reactor). This technology is based on the growth of biomass in a plastic supports (carriers) suspended in the bioreactor mixed liquor. These carriers allow more concentration of microorganisms per unit volume than a conventional system, reaching high quality effluent in a minimum area of implementation. In addition, our exclusive AZUD RC system allows remote management of automation and electromechanical...
There are different varieties different in size, colour and taste. Thanks to the development of new varieties it has been possible to obtain melons of better organoleptic characteristics. Its shape is different depending on the variety (round, eliptic, oval, etc) and the surface can be green, white or yellow.
The sugar cane is a plant which assimilates easily the solar radiation, having a efficiency near the 2% of energy conversion incidental in the biomass. This capacity increases the commercial possibilities to the profit of numerous products to extract, in most of the cases of higher value and economic importance than sugar. The cultivation of sugar cane presents itself as an opportunity of high value against other types of cultivations. Nevertheless, this crop also suffers the problems of water shortage. Taking...
The potato started in the Andes and it is one of the crops of greater importance Worldwide. The potato came to Europe in the XVI century by two different ways: one was in Spain around 1570 and the other was by the British Islands among 1588 and 1593, from where it was expanded to the rest of Europe. The annual production is of 300 million tons of the fresh tuber expanded in 19.5 millions of hectares planted. Asia and Europe are the regions with bigger production worldwide, with more than the 80% of the production....
Citrus fruits belong to rutaceus, they started 20 millions of years ago in the Asiatic South East. They grow in subtropical and tropical climates. The world production is estimated in approximately 100 millions of tons.
Cucumbers come from the tropical areas of South-Asia and they grow in greenhouses in different climates. They are smooth and the colour, depending on the variety, can change from light green to dark green, reaching a yellowish colour when it is completely mature. They produce good outputs in warm and cold climates. Under extreme conditions ventilation and heating systems are necessary. The bigger producers are China, Turkey, Iran, United States, Japan and Russia.
The almond tree is from the rosaceous family and comes from the Middle East. The almond is very popular due to its high contain in E vitamin and low in saturated fat. It is a tree with very similar to the peach, and it can also reach 6 meters high and 4 meters of diameter. The bigger producers are United States, Spain, Italy, Iran and Morocco.
Tomato is one of the most spreaded agricultural products all around the world and even of higher economic value. Its demand is continuously increasing and with it, the crop, production and trade. The world production is of 85 millions of tons (FAO 2007) and the countries with higher productions are China, Mexico, United States, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Egypt. Continentally, according to FAO data, Asia participates with no more than 50%, followed by America with a 20%, Europe 15% and the rest comes from Oceania...
Grapevine is a deciduous bush belonging to Vitaceas family. Its scientific name is Vitis vinífera. Its economic importance is due to its fruit, the grape, used so much for direct consumption as fermented to produce wine.
The cotton is one of the most Worldwide Spreads crops, due to the production of the fibre to the textile industry and the oil of its seeds. The worldwide production is of 26 millions of tons of seeds. The main producers are China, United States and India, although cotton is produced in more than 100 countries.
It is a tree from the rosaceous family and comes from the Asiatic south-east. It is one of the most extended fruit trees, cultivated worldwide, due to its feeding value, easiness to the adaptation to different climates and quality of the products obtained in the industry: juices, cider, liquor, marmalade, sweets and jellies. The bigger production of apple is in China, United States, France, Italy and Turkey.
The date palm trees are from the Palmaceae family. They come from the Persian Gulf and they grow in the arid and subtropical regions. The main producers are Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq and Algeria (source: FAO). Its fruit, the date, make bunches of until 25 kg of mature fruit and it reaches it whole development in several months. It has an oval shape, it is smooth and with a long and grooved seed. In some countries, the fruits are covered with paper bags to protect them from the elements (rain,...
