`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...
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.
The Aquaculture industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the agricultural industry accounting for over 1.13 billion dollars in the USA alone. However, this industry is suffering with several water quality challenges requiring sustainable aquaculture water treatment solutions to enhance fish health, and population yield while meeting environmental discharge regulations. The challenges facing aquaculture companies include emerging growth rates of specific bacteria and viruses, water usage, and environmental...
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.
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
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.

The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of total inorganic cations (ammonium potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium) in all types of feedstuffs, compound feeds, fodders, premixes, fodder additives, and feed raw materials (of plant, animal, and mineral origin) by capillary electrophoresis.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of water-soluble chloride, nitrate, phosphate, and total sulfate in all types of feedstuffs, compound feeds, fodders, premixes, fodder additives, and feed raw materials (of plant, animal, and mineral origin) by capillary electrophoresis.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of caffeine and theobromine in tea and tea products, coffee and coffee products, cocoa and cocoa products, and dietary supplements.
The method is used for the determination of the mass concentration of oxalic, formic, fumaric, succinic, malic, citric, acetic, propionic, lactic, benzoic, sorbic, butyric acids in fodder additives and butyric acid in silage and haylage by capillary electrophoresis.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of ascorbic acid and its salts in food additives and fodder additives (feed additives).The present method does not allow the determination of ascorbic acid in premixes.For the determination of acetic, benzoic, butyric, citric, formic, fumaric, lactic, malic, oxalic, propionic, sorbic, and succinic acids in fodder additives and butyric acid in silage and haylage use the method М 04-74-2012 (Lumex Instruments set, order No 0300001897).
Fungicide Carbendazim (Mercazole, Carbendazole) is widely used in agriculture to exterminate black mold (spot) on orange trees and treat fungus diseases of other fruit-bearing plants. According to the data of the World Health Organization, Carbendazim is toxic for liver, impacts reproductive system, and is considered to be a potentially cancerogenic compound. In most of the developed countries, the residual content of this fungicide is subject to national and international regulations. Researchers of...
