Globalization puts ever-increasing demands on the food and agriculture industry. Highly sensitive analytical instrumentation is key for reliable monitoring of food products along the food chain starting from agricultural production over food processing and packaging to distribution and consumption. Analytik Jena analytical solutions help you meet industry standards during both development of new products or quality control assessment.
`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.
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
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.
Our UV water disinfection technology is used in fish farms, mussel farms, aquariums and hatcheries. The benefits of UV disinfection has led to the production of healthier and larger fish, improved water quality, possible increases in stock density and vastly reduces the risk of disease. UV light is a chemical free treatment that cannot be overdosed, ensuring the physical characteristics of the water, such as PH levels and temperature, remain unchanged whilst avoiding the introduction of harmful toxins, such as...
In the current fruit and vegetable market, transporting and warehousing produce for long periods of time is a common practice. Ensuring that the environment in which they are stored is optimal during these periods is critical if damage and spoilage leading to loss of produce is to be avoided.
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.
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...
Use KISTERS solutions for gathering of meteorological, soil, and other timely crop data from the field. Easily remove the difficulties in comparing statistics and validating information collected for the monitoring and measuring of agricultural production.
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.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of total amino acids: arginine, lysine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, histidine, leucine and iso-leucine (as a sum), methionine, valine, proline, alanine, glycine, cystine, tryptophan, aspartic, and glutamic acids in feedstuffs, compound feeds, fodders, premixes, and all types of feed raw materials by capillary electrophoresis.
