  • GWT- Agro-Z media enhanced plant growth and reduces fertilizer usage in Nursery

    This case outlines the benefits and advantages of using GWT series Agro-Z medium in an agriculture plant nursery application. This particular large nursery was challenged with brackish water and salty soil. The plant growing operations were suffering due to lack of plant growth.  Genesis Water Technologies, experienced in agriculture water treatment solutions provided both a water treatment ...

  • Growth and phosphorus uptake of three riparian grass species

    Riparian buffers can significantly reduce sediment-bound P entering surface water, but control of dissolved P inputs is more challenging. Because plant roots remove P from soil solution, it follows that plant uptake can reduce dissolved P losses. We evaluated P uptake of smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis Leyss.), reed canarygrass (Phalaris arundinacea L.), and switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) ...

  • Using Compost To Control Plant Diseases

    Losses due to soilborne diseases on some greenhouse, nursery and vegetable crops can amount to thousands of dollars per acre annually. Until the 1930s, organic amendments — consisting of animal and green manures, coupled with crop rotation — were principal methods of control. But these approaches were largely abandoned for reasons of cost and inconvenience after commercial fertilizers and the ...

  • Agriculture plant nursery application case studies

    Challenge A plant nursery company had water quality issues from the well water source that there were using for irrigation purposes in their plant growing operations. These water quality issues including total dissolved salts (TDS) around 2500 mg/l, as well as turbidity, mineral hardness and microbiological contaminants. The plants were slow growing. Solution ...

  • Creating a Sustainable Food Future: Interim Findings - A menu of solutions to sustainably feed more than 9 billion people by 2050

    The world’s agricultural system faces a great balancing act. To meet different human needs, by 2050 it must simultaneously produce far more food for a population expected to reach about 9.6 billion, provide economic opportunities for the hundreds of millions of rural poor who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, and reduce environmental impacts, including ecosystem degradation and ...

  • Comparison of date-palm wastes and perlite as culture substrates on growing indices in greenhouse cucumber

    Abstract Different substrates have several materials which could have direct and/or indirect effects on plant growth and development. Therefore selecting the best substrate between the ...

  • Stud case study

    A major vegetable grower in Lantokia, Fiji, using soilless culture systems began to trial Amnite A-100. His crops consisted principally of lettuce, tomatoes, capsicums, cucumbers, zucchinis and melons. Before the trials they had been plagued with root diseases, mosaic virus and insect attack, control of which required constant use of pesticides and ultraviolet lighting. The first trials commenced ...

  • Mixture toxicity of copper, cadmium and zinc to barley seedlings is not explained by antioxidant and oxidative stress biomarkers

    Metal mixture toxicity analysis to plants is complicated by mutual interactions. Here, mixture effects of zinc (Zn), cadmium (Cd) and copper (Cu) on barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) root elongation were analysed using oxidative stress parameters. The hypothesis was that toxic mixture effects on plant growth are better explained by biochemical parameters than by exposure information, because the ...

  • Toxicity and bioaccumulation potential of Cr (VI) and Hg (II) on differential concentration by Eichhornia crassipes in hydroponic culture

    In this work, the phytoremediation of Cr (VI) and Hg (II) ion from water by an aquatic plant Eichhornia crassipes has been studied. Plants were cultured in a double distillated water with modified Hoagland’s nutrient solution at pH 6.8 supplemented with 0, 0.75, 1.50, 2.50, and 4 mg Cr/L as potassium dichromate (K2Cr2O7) and 0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 mg Hg/L as mercuric chloride (HgCl2). They were ...

    ALGAE PHOTO-BIOREACTORS (APB’s) Absorption of CO2 and NOx from industrial exhaust gases and conversion of algal feedstock, as a discipline of ecological engineering. Algae, live in a wide range of aquatic environments and are a natural component of most aquatic ecosystems being found in both fresh, brackish and marine waters. They range in size from large macrophytic kelps to microscopic ...

  • Modulation of exogenous selenium in cadmium‐induced changes in antioxidative metabolism, cadmium uptake, and photosynthetic performance in the 2 tobacco genotypes differing in cadmium tolerance

    Hydroponic experiments were conducted using cadmium (Cd)–sensitive (cv Guiyan 1) and Cd‐tolerant (Yunyan 2) tobacco cultivars to evaluate cultivar differences in response to Cd toxicity in the presence of selenium (Se). The results showed that addition of 3 µM Se in 50 µM Cd solution markedly reduced Cd accumulation in plants, alleviated Cd‐induced growth inhibition, and increased nitrogen and ...
