Fungicide Carbendazim (Mercazole, Carbendazole) is widely used in agriculture to exterminate black mold (spot) on orange trees and treat fungus diseases of other fruit-bearing plants. According to the data of the World Health Organization, Carbendazim is toxic for liver, impacts reproductive system, and is considered to be a potentially cancerogenic compound. In most of the developed countries, the residual content of this fungicide is subject to national and international regulations. Researchers of LUMEX INSTRUMENTS, Ltd. have developed an analytical procedure for determination of the Carbendazim content in orange and other citrus juice produce using a capillary electrophoresis system CAPEL-105М.

Wood is one of the world`s oldest and most important raw materials. Apart from applications in the furniture and building industry and related sectors, CTP systems are used for air purification in the production of lumber products such as plywood panels, fibre boards (particle boards, MDF, OSB) and compressed wooden parts.

It is a pyramidal-shape tree, of the rosaceous family, coming from oriental Europe and Occidental Asia. The bigger producers are China, Italy, United States and Argentina (source: FAO). The multiplication is done by seed and grafting. The pear, with difference to most of the fruits coming from deciduous trees, have better quality when they are harvested slightly green.

The date palm trees are from the Palmaceae family. They come from the Persian Gulf and they grow in the arid and subtropical regions. The main producers are Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq and Algeria (source: FAO). Its fruit, the date, make bunches of until 25 kg of mature fruit and it reaches it whole development in several months. It has an oval shape, it is smooth and with a long and grooved seed. In some countries, the fruits are covered with paper bags to protect them from the elements (rain, dust) and the rodents.

Bio-rational fruit protection
Non-woven fabric bag designed for the protection of individual or clustered fruits.
Performs sheathing which guarantees that no insect or plague comes in contact with the fruit isolating it from the exterior.
Unlike polyethylene bags, it is reusable up to 4 times
Generates a micro-climate that promotes the growth and quality of the fruit.
In Banana Trees and Bananas, it succeeds in moving forward the harvesting by 2 weeks.
Protects the fruit without the use of agro-chemicals; ideal for organic or bio-rational crops.
The Agribon® bag absorbs the latex residues that detach the bananas when deflowering; this manages to reduce or eliminate the “Latex Stain”.
Frequent crops: Banana tree, Banana, Papaya.

Urban Trees are continuously exposed to several stress situations like air pollution, soil compaction, exhaust gases, damage of tree trunks, etc. For the responsible authorities it is important to anticipate these problems, as the consequences of possible accidents can be considerable (e.g. tree fall).EUROSENSE can provide a number of products that are important means for designing a correct policy for urban trees on short and long term.
Acquisition of images -The acquisition of aerial or satellite images is the basis of tree inventory, mapping and most of our products. The assessment of the physiological tree status is done with colour infrared (IR) images. In the IR spectrum of the light, vegetation reflects much more and can hence be better analysed than in the case of normal light spectrum.
Tree inventory - An inventory of the tree patrimony is the basis of a good tree management. Tree species identification, tree height, trunk circumference measurements and spatial localization of trees are primary needs for every Green City Service.
Tree crown diameter - Based on semi-automatic aerial or satellite image analysis, the crown diameter of every tree can be calculated. The location, the extent of trees and their proximity to buildings can be visualised in a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment.
Tree labelling - In the field, every tree can be labelled to assure the correct identification.
Tree status assessment - Mechanical Status: EUROSENSE assesses tree stability with the Visual Tree Assessment method. This consists in identifying internal mechanical defects using external signs (e.g. appearance of the trunk, fungal fruiting bodies,…).
Physiological status: unhealthy trees, although appearing healthy on the field, can already exhibit obvious illness symptoms (lower red colour levels) on the colour infrared images. Mostly, this bad physiological status will only be visible on the field several years later.
Data management - The integration of each tree into a GIS (Geographic Information System) database is essential. Within this GIS, the user can request, observe and add data during different stages of the tree management. By publishing the obtained data online, citizens can also visualize the results.
Analysis tools - Trees can be evaluated through time by making evolution maps: improvement or deterioration of the health status of trees can be visualized. Statistical analysis, like tree species, health status distribution, etc. can be very useful in reports. Tree policy and management plan - A clear tree policy can result in a detailed management plan indicating concrete measures for every tree.

Forestry, by its very nature, takes workers into tough outdoor environments. We`ve had customers use our devices for timber cruising, GPS navigation, wildlife surveying and other types of forest management. From silviculture to wildfire management, the mapping, imaging and reporting capabilities of today’s rugged handhelds are an essential part of keeping our forests healthy — and forest workers efficient.

Aerial surveys have become an integral part of forestland management, in large part replacing extensive field surveys. With current digital mapping capabilities, acquiring fast, accurate imagery is now not only essential, but also cost effective. Whether you need data for stand updating, depletion mapping or defoliation and damage assessment, you face the challenge of choosing the best technology and service for your investment.
To accommodate your forestry business requirements, the GeoVantage approach makes easy and rapid collections of contiguous or scattered blocks possible, with coverage worldwide. GeoVantage offers a wide variety of digital ortho-mosaicked color infrared and natural color imagery from a quarter meter to two-meter pixel resolution.
- Stand delineation
- Inventory analysis
- Depletion mapping
- Damage assessment
