  • Our Spacer: A Versatile Solution for Hydroponic Crops

    In vegetable crops in particular, there are a number of tried and tested advantages to using our Spacers in hydroponic farming. They include providing a means of lifting the substrate away from the drainage stream whilst providing excellent aeration and avoiding a build-up of humidity below the substrate. These advantages have led to Spacers also being used with other applications and in other ...

  • What is humic acid and what is humic acid organic fertilizer?

    Humic acid is a kind of water-insoluble polymer organic acid polymer with aromatic core as the main body and various functional groups. It includes humic acid (black humic acid + brown humic acid) and fulvic acid (yellow humic acid). Humic acid widely exists in nature and is an important part of soil organic matter. It combines with ammonium, sodium, potassium and other monovalent alkali metals ...

  • The Future Of The Hydroponic Systems

    The hydroponics, which had its expansion in the early 70s in order to increase productivity and growing in adverse geographical locations, has a long way to go. Some advances in the hydroponic systems has been made recently at the last frontier: space. At the International Space Station (ISS), water and food are limited resources ...

  • Basic Information of RFID Tags

    History of RFID tags In 1937, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) developed the identification Friend-or-Foe (IFF) system to distinguish allied aircraft from enemy aircraft. This technology later became the basis of modern air traffic control in the 1950s. And it is the germination of the early RFID technology, which has priority use in military, laboratory and so on.   In the late ...

  • Coated seeds may enable agriculture on marginal lands

    A specialized silk covering could protect seeds from salinity while also providing fertilizer-generating microbes Providing seeds with a protective coating that also supplies essential nutrients to the germinating plant could make it possible to grow crops in otherwise unproductive soils, according to new research at MIT. ...

  • The Nutritional Value of Bean Sprouts

     Bean has the reputation of "plant meat" for containing high protein, low fat, and its high protein utilization. Unfortunately, beans contain a lot of "anti-nutrition", such as phytic acid and trypsin inhibitors respectively interfere with the absorption of iron, zinc and other minerals and proteins. In the process of bean germination, the activity of phytase (with the characteristics of ...

  • N-(N-butyl)thiophosphoric triamide/NBPT

    Urease inhibitor is a kind of substance that can inhibit the activity of soil urease, and it is a new technology which has been studied in urea or nitrogen compound fertilizer. Using soil urease inhibitor can effectively slow decomposition of urea into ammonia process, reduce soil NH4 + and NH3 concentration, soil fertility and crop fertilizer synchronization. NBPT is the most effective ...

  • N-(N-butyl) Thiophosphoric Triamide Solution

    N-Butylthiophosphoric triamide (NBPT, hereinafter referred to as "NBPT") is currently one of the most effective soil urease inhibitors. Agricultural fertilizers, mainly nitrogen fertilizers, are quickly decomposed by urease in the soil under normal use. This not only wastes a lot of nitrogen fertilizer resources, but also increases the cost of crop production, and brings a series of problems such ...

  • Choosing the Right Light for Young Plants

    Horticulture lighting research has been conducted on young plants (germination, seedlings, plugs and cuttings) for many years. Michigan State University published a series of articles in Greenhouse Grower (see references below) on bedding plant seedlings. In their research, Drs. Wollaeger and Runkle experimented with different LED wavelengths and compared them to fluorescent light on seedling ...

  • Expression of phytoglobin affects nitric oxide metabolism and energy state of barley plants exposed to anoxia

    Abstract Class 1 plant hemoglobins (phytoglobins) are upregulated during low-oxygen stress and participate in metabolism and cell signaling via modulation of the levels of nitric oxide (NO). We studied the effects of overexpression and knockdown of the class 1 phytoglobin gene in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) under low-oxygen stress. The overexpression of phytoglobin reduced the ...

  • Effect of AgraGel T-400 on tomato crops, U. of Valparaiso, Chile - Case Study

    Introduction At present, a great part of vegetable production in Chile is dedicated to industrial agronomy and one of the most important products is the tomato crop for industrial processing. Chile has a capacity of 180,000 tons of tomatoes per year, which is equivalent to 12,000 hectares of crop land. Among canned products tomato paste represents 38%. This is an important employment ...

  • Effects of magnetized water application on soil and maize growth indices under different amounts of salt in the water

    Application of low quality water for irrigation is compulsive in facing water scarcity. Use of a magnetic field is an approach to overcome this challenge. This study examined the impact of magnetic field technology on improving germination under water of different salinity levels. An experiment was conducted to determine the effects of saline water levels, i.e. (S1):0.5, (S2):2, ...
