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.
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 Toptex fabric is a high grade membrane to protect straw, sugar beet and potato harvests from frost and rain, thereby reducing the amount of clinging clay on beets or potatoes and efficiently leading to less cleaning water needed in the process. On top of this, dried harvests offer a higher yield for the farmer and better quality for the consumer.
Alfalfa is a crop of the legume family and its scientific name is Medicago sativa. Alfalfa is a perennial plant of erect growth and is one of the most extended forage crops within temperate climate countries.
Lettuces are season vegetables coming from India and cultivated for more than 2000 years ago. The bigger producers are China and the United States.

The olive tree is one of the most traditional and old crop of the Mediterranean areas. The olive oil obtained has served for centuries as food and applications such as raw material to lighting and medical products. The actual situation is exceptional due to it high demand and profitability, thanks to the successful food campaign which stands out its therapeutic and nutritive properties. The crop surface is continuously growing. Spain and Italy are the main producers worldwide, followed by Greece, Turkey and...
It is a fruit tree of great importance worldwide, coming from china and from the rosaceous family. The countries of bigger production of peach are the United States, Spain, Italy and Greece. Spain, from the European point of view is the third producer with 900.000 tons and 78.000 hectares. Most of the production (around the 70%) is intended for the fresh consume and the rest to the industry. The main producer areas in Spain are: Valle del Ebro, Lérida y Murcia.
It is an irrigation system that uses a main network to distribute the filtered and pressurized water to the emitting pipes under the surface of the terrain and together the crop line. The emitters in line supply a unique flow rate by each emitting point that is among the interval of 0,6-8l/h. The volume of water supplied under the surface of the soil (nearest the plants) generates a spatial distribution of the same named “dump bulb”. The shape and size of this “dump bulb” is different from the surface localized...
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.

It is a pyramidal-shape tree, of the rosaceous family, coming from oriental Europe and Occidental Asia. The bigger producers are China, Italy, United States and Argentina (source: FAO). The multiplication is done by seed and grafting. The pear, with difference to most of the fruits coming from deciduous trees, have better quality when they are harvested slightly green.
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...
