With a number of “emerging” pathogens now displaying increased resistance to traditional methods of disinfection, Ultraviolet treatment is now the...
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...
Sowing directly in Greenplugs is becoming more and more popular. This method makes it easier to grade seedlings according to size at an early stage and to remove any plugs in which the seed hasn’t germinated. This may optimise the propagation process and the use of space. Transplanting or repotting seedlings grown in plugs moreover often takes less time than transplanting seedlings grown in trays, and it involves less risk of losses.

Paper pots and glued plugs are very suitable for rooting and raising plants from cuttings. Plugs with pre-dibbled or pre-drilled plant holes are clearly winning ground. And that’s not surprising: they save time and labour. Ever more cuttings are being produced and rooted in areas with a favourable climate and low wages, such as Africa. To minimise the costs of air transport, the plants are loaded into the planes as small as possible, and in as many as possible per tray. The very tender, lightly rooted...
Simple installation, ease of use, and reliability make the xProxy® alert system an ideal solution for wireless remote center pivot stop alerts. Farmers and growers install the xProxy® auto dialer on their center pivots and receive configurable alerts via email, voice message, text message, and push notifications when their pivots stop unexpectedly or as planned.
For wine growers it isn`t just a question of giving your vines enough water - sometimes they need to stress their grapes by depriving them of moisture to ensure that the fruit reaches the quality sought by the winemaker. In particular, soil moisture levels are critically important to the management of sugar and anthocyanin in the initial stages of ripening right the way through to the production of flavor compounds in the later stages of the lifecycle of the grape.
Precision agriculture is no longer a new term in crop production. It is now a widely accepted practice. Aerial imagery is a key component in utilizing precision agriculture techniques for the management of farmland. The GeoVantage Imaging System provides high-resolution, orthorectified images that are used by Cooperatives, Ag Service Providers (ASPs), Crop Consultants, and Growers to:
Create management zones
Evaluate the effectiveness of fertilizer applications

The TracMap system is an in-cab GPS display unit that works with a cloud-based job management system called TracMap Online. Using TracMap Online, ag service providers and their customers can draw maps of the areas that need to be cultivated or treated, mark out hazards, and input job details (chemical, rate etc.). You can then send all the job information wirelessly to drivers.
Nicolon Ground Cover Fabrics control weeds found in land maintained by professional growers and landscapers. These highly useful fabrics feature woven polypropylene that allows water and nutrients to pass through while preventing roots from implanting into the soil. Available in widths from 3 to 15 feet (0.90 x 4.5m), Nicolon ground cover fabrics can also be utilized in soil separation and barrier fencing applications.
Over the past 20 years active fluorescence has been widely adopted by the scientific community, ecosystem managers and crop growers as a rapid and non-invasive method of estimating photosynthetic performance within a wide range of organisms, including phytoplankton (microalgae and cyanobacteria), biofilms, benthic autotrophs (corals, macroalgae and sea grasses) and terrestrial plants. The main rational for applying active fluorescence is that changes in key fluorescence parameters can reveal the early onset of...
Television and radio news reports and regional forecasts have their role and are important sources of general information for managing an agricultural operation. But these reports probably don’t represent the conditions at your specific site – what about your local weather conditions?

chili is an essential spice in life. It can also be supplemented with vitamin E, vitamin K, carotene, folic acid and other vitamins. Chili is spicy, hot, and has a lot of therapeutic effects. In order to facilitate the long-term storage of peppers, chili growers generally choose to dehydrate and dry the peppers. Generally, there are two commonly used drying methods, one is ordinary drying and the drying of the chili microwave drying machine.
Greenhouse-grown plants represent an increasingly important segment of the horticulture industry. Greenhouse operations produce a variety of annuals and perennials in a controlled environment. These plants are then sold at independent garden centers and mass merchants before becoming fixtures in consumers’ homes and commercial landscapes. Studies have shown that plants can reduce stress, clean air, decrease utility bills and improve the overall value of a community. Greenhouse Management is the leading...
