The complete Plastic-Puglia systems for irrigation and fertigation of tree crops (such as hazelnuts, citrus groves, olive groves, vineyards) allow a greater yield of the crops and a saving on the available resources.
SedEvent is an event-driven, automatic grab sampling system that provides a simple and practical method of accurately determining suspended sediment and nutrient loads.
While suspended sediment concentration (SSC) cannot be directly measured accurately or reliably, turbidity has been shown to be an excellent surrogate for SSC. Turbidity is caused by suspended particulate matter such as clay, silt, algae, organic and inorganic chemicals and acids like fertilizers, and microscopic organisms like harmful bacteria....

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...
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;...
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,...
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.
An easy-to-use e.Cognition ruleset to fully measure tree parameters.
This ruleset has been developed and applied during the course of various projects with a large German State Forest Administration and other private forest owners. It is designed to create a polygon shapefile representing single tree crowns. It can process all types of forest stands, including very young and mature stands simultaneously. During the processing, a stand is divided into homogeneous groups based on tree height. Each group is then...
HammerTek`s Smart Elbows are widely recognized for their ability to save costs, time and space by promoting a deflective direction change. The Smart Elbow is used by industry leaders all over America and Canada such as Weyerhauser, Georgia Pacific, and Northwood Pulp & Timber just to name a few.
Tea plant is a shrub that develops in tropical or subtropical climates, coming from continental China, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Japan, Nepal, Austria and Kenya. Tea trees are cultivated in gardens, huge forests of small trees. The bigger producers worldwide are China and India; both produce the 50% of the total. The tea production is very competitive all around the world. Not technified irrigation systems, obsolete and the lack of water are the most important factors that reduce the tea production.

JLM Equipment Inc. provides quality grapple truck equipment to aid in the clearing and removal of bulky waste for the Forestry - Agriculture industry. This equipment improves the safety and cost efficiency of removal of debris.
Dead trees and wood from forest thinning can be chipped, dried, and converted to renewable energy while eliminating disposal costs.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its carbon content to CO2, but gasification sequesters a portion of it as charcoal waste, usable as biochar.
Dead trees and wood from forest management can be chipped and dried for gasification. The electricity generated can offset electrical costs while the consumption of waste wood offsets disposal costs.

Biochar is formed through the carbonisation of organic matter. Biochar can be used in many different ways. The decisive factor is always which quality criteria have to be met. Carbonisation – the conversion of organic material to biochar – is a process that has been known and practised for many centuries. However, only the state-of-the-art PYREG process can control the process parameters in such a way that biochar can be produced in different quality levels and nutrients can be gently recovered....
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.

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.

One way to create sustainable housing is to build log homes from wood. Wood is a natural building material, it provides healthy indoor air, and it also has a low carbon footprint. Log houses are durable and they have good insulation properties, which makes them ideal for northern weather conditions. They are quick to build and the components can be transported easily. Log buildings are also especially resilient in earthquake areas. Finnish industrial log house manufacturers are well-known for their high-quality...
