Mycotoxins are a diverse group comprised of hundreds of secondary metabolic products of various fungal species. Several show marked toxicity in humans. Contamination of the food supply with mycotoxins is increasingly prevalent, and can occur during growth, harvest, transportation, processing or storage. Techniques to reduce mycotoxin concentration after contamination are expensive, unreliable and sometimes reversible. Therefore, the removal of contaminated products from the food chain is a primary means of...
`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...
A group of 30 compounds was selected, representing pesticides, acaricides, insecticides, and fungicides. These samples were analyzed using Supel™ QuE QuEChERS and an Ascentis® Express RP-Amide HPLC Column.
Herbicides are used throughout the world to combat the growth of unwanted plant life. These polar compounds are hydrophilic, so they may find their way into drinking water sources.
While gas chromatography has historically been the preferred technique for analysis of herbicides in water samples, the use of LC-MS/MS for this application is gaining acceptance. This is due to the power of MS/MS to provide detailed identification of multiple
analytes, but also in part due to the variety of HPLC stationary phases...
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.
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
A crusher bucket MB-C50 was used, mounted on a Kobelco, to reduce all inert material brought out from the plant, as the main goal was to access the interior to have a perspective of the future development.
We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
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 solutions for irrigation and fertigation of horticultural and floricultural crops in the open field (such as maize, tomato, potato, onion, strawberries, roses, carnations) allow the right supply of water and nutrients to each plant, where it is needed.
The complete Plastic-Puglia systems for irrigation and fertigation of tree crops (such as hazelnuts, citrus groves, olive groves, vineyards) allow a greater yield of the crops and a saving on the available resources.
Plant and mechanical engineering is a global industry involving complex applications. This demands flexibility, quality, reliability and customer focus. Given the wide range of possible applications, there is a need for various pressure ranges, appropriate accuracies, suitable electrical and mechanical connections and output signals agreed in consultation with the customer.
BCMbio™ is dedicated to providing a full range of microbial solutions to the agriculture, horticulture and turf management marketplaces. A rich, biologically active soil is fundamental to building a sustainable agricultural system. Our soil specific strains are designed to improve soil quality, increase plant health and provide a cleaner, larger yield at harvest.
Our lab is certified and equipped to serve our clients by identifying pathogens from samples obtained from soil, water and plants. A variety of tests can be offered for pathogens detection and pathogen identification in the lab. In addition, our scientists, with training in plant protection, will be available to provide consulting services to our clients for additional support. Our timely support can help you to prevent plant diseases from spreading or happening.
Farming involves the largest market of professional high pressure washers. Every farmers today will own at least one machine which, however, will be rather big and difficult to handle when covering the various farming applications. An existing tractor is used as a mobile power station to drive a Neròn hydro cleaner which is easily coupled to the hydraulic sockets of the tractor by quick connectors that will eliminate handwork, save human manpower and increase agricultural productivity/profitability.
Traditional animal feed ingredients are primarily produced from corn, cereals, and wheat, and although those components provide much-needed nutrients for the animal, they are difficult to completely digest. If ignored, undigested food can cause weight loss, diarrhea, decreased production of bile, over-production of stomach acid and even mortality.
Plastic-Puglia dedicates part of its research and development of innovative products to farmers and especially, to nursery farms. The company manufactures the eco seed-trays, for horticultural use, high density polyethylene case for fruit and vegetable domain, draining and closed polyethylene tubs, ideal for nursery plants.
Natural Bacteria & Enzymes Improve Survival Rates, Increase Clarity & Inhibit Pathogens. Aquaculture has been growing at a phenomenal rate in the last 20 years. The World now produces more farmed fish and other aquatic species for consumption than beef. The concern now is developing clean, sustainable harvests.
