`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...
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
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.
Mantec offers solutions for production challenges. Our products and services enable manufacturers to meet regulatory requirements and increase output while reducing total cost of ownership. Mantec especially offers retrofit filtration solutions to established fertilizer manufacturing process systems to maximise efficiency.
Foresters have used FlexiPlugs and FlexiTrays to successfully start deciduous and coniferous trees, including loblolly as well as white and red pine. Our products provide optimal water retention and aeration and also promote quick rooting of cuttings. The stabilized aspect of Flexi products gives forestry companies more freedom when it comes to transporting and transplanting young seedlings.

Sweet potato roots can be processed into dehydrated forms such as dried chips and flour for storage and uses in food preparations. Sweet potato drying usually performed traditionally with the use of sun, which is a time consuming method (about 56 hours) and produces an inferior quality product with high health risk due to high contamination. The most employed way to reduce the drying time and obtain good quality product is the use of mechanical dryers, and it also lowers the product mass and volume which improves...
Companies specialising in tissue culture multiply large numbers of plants in a short space of time by propagating plant parts and plant cells in artificial culture media. This is done in vitro under sterile conditions. Unlike with cuttings, the primary rooting often takes place in vitro too. Tissue-culture or in-vitro plants are nowadays used by thousands of growers. For some species, such as Lisianthus, orchids, lilies and various perennials, this is the most common form of propagation. A steadily increasing...
The mercerisation of cotton materials yields large quantities of weak caustic soda. Recovery of mercerising lye by means of our Körting evaporation technology developed specially for this process results in an immense saving of costs and a minimised impact on the environment. When combined with a specially co-ordinated lye cleaning system the result is a nearly 100% recovery of lye.
In the late nineties, long before `Biodiesel` and `Bioethanol` were commonly known, Aerox already developed solutions to get rid of odours from oil seed processing! This industry gains oil and meal out of the seeds of grains, like soy or rapeseed / canola. The oil is used in feed and food industry, but nowadays also can be used to produce biodiesel or bioethanol.

The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of free choline (synthetic and natural) in feedstuffs by capillary electrophoresis. The method can be applied for all types of feedstuffs, compound feeds, fodders, premixes, fodder additives, and feed raw materials. The present method does not allow the determination of bound choline.
The method allows determination of herbicides classified as phenoxycarboxylic acids, specifically: 2,4-dichloro-- phenoxybutyric acid (2,4-DB), 2,4-dichlorophenoxypropioni c acid (2,4-DP, Dichlorprop), 2,4-dichloropheno-- xyacetic acid (2,4-D), and phenoxyacetic acid in samples of natural, potable and treated waste water by capillary electrophoresis.
Wireless sensors for monitoring grain quantity in silos. Grain level is measured and volume or weight are calculated. Information is transmitted over a cellular network to a central server for viewing over the Internet. Additional information includes temperature, power supply status and cellular signal strength. Authorized users can browse and view the state of each silo.
Our mission is to offer innovative solutions to farmers that increase their crop yields whilst being respectful of the environment. To this end we have developed the products fiscoterra-g and ficosagro, 100% ecological to contribute to soil regeneration. Thanks to the use of BCB (Biological Crop Booster) technology and the introduction of organic material coming from algae, we can reach very competitive production levels, clearly improving crop yields
