    Straw & Hay Cover Protection for the Crop Farming Industry

    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.

    Potato Cover Protection for the Crop Farming Industry

    The Toptex protection fabric to safely cover potatoes is closely linked to a higher yield of the potato harvest due to reduced mass and starch losses. Its water shedding quality, which safely protects the potatoes from precipitation, characterizes the Toptex protection fabric for potato piles.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the horticulture industry

    With a number of units specially designed and developed for hydroponics and agriculture, atg UV’s treatment systems eliminate all types of water borne micro-organisms. atg UV Technology’s leading Ultraviolet treatment systems are used in a number of key areas to vastly reduce the risk of product rejection, crop failure and the spread of disease. With a number of “emerging” pathogens now displaying increased resistance to traditional methods of disinfection, Ultraviolet treatment is now the preferred and accepted method of disinfection over traditional chemical methods.

    Water filtration systems for sub-surface drip irrigation

    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 irrigation.

    Instruments and analyzers for agriculture minimum temperature

    Prediction of minimum temperature and frost damage is a common method and important application in the field of agriculture like outdoors crops growth. In particular the areas where vegetation can be exposed to low temperatures, frost can be disastrous for young plants or fruits. Heat loss measurements inside a greenhouse is a similar application to control the temperature of the crop. When the IR radiation exchange is measured with a pyrgeometer, special screens can be closed when temperature are expected to drop rapidly.

  • Laboratory equipments for oil & water in seeds

    Measuring Oil and Water in Seeds using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. The breeding, cultivation and processing of seeds to obtain vegetable oil is a major global industry. The amount of oil in seeds and water in seeds are critical parameters which need to be understood at all stages of the industry from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Oils derived in this manner are used in foodstuffs, the manufacture of biofuels and as a chemical feedstock for many products.

  • Protecting agricultural crops and feed stock

    Birds are naturally drawn to food supplies in agricultural areas, transmitting diseases and damaging crops. Fruits, vegetables and newly-seeded and emergent crops provide an all-you-can-eat feast for birds if unchecked. Birds typically eat their body weight in food every day causing damage to crops and food storage in barns ranging from 5-50% or more!

    Globally, this problem causes billions of euros of damage each year. Effective bird control is essential and farmers do anything to keep birds away from their crops. At Bird Control Group we offer cost effective and animal-friendly solutions for protecting agricultural areas and keeping your valuable crops safe.

    The principle of repelling birds with a laser beam is inspired by nature. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical object. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. It’s safe, silent and birds do not get used to the laser beam.
