    Hydroponics

    `A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down organic matter into basic nutrients that plants feed on. Water dissolves these nutrients which allows uptake by the roots. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

    Rapid Determination of Pesticides in Spinach

    Highly pigmented foods, such as spinach, require cleanup prior to analysis for pesticide residues. A dual-layer SPE tube containing graphitized carbon and aminopropyl on silica (NH2) is often used because; Carbon removes pigments and sterols and NH2 removes fatty acids, polar pigments, organic acids, and sugars. Removing these matrix materials reduces interferences that can lead to ion suppression in LC-MS, inlet contamination in GC-MS, and column contamination for both techniques. Our Supel Sphere Carbon/NH2 SPE tube uses spherical materials for both the carbon and NH2 layers, providing fast, more consistent flows compared to tubes containing granular material. This allows gravity elution (instead of vacuum elution) to be applied to Supel Sphere tubes, resulting in more contact time between extracts and sorbents.

    Improved Recovery of the Fungicide Carbendazim

    Fungicide carbendazim can some times be used to combat mold on citrus fruits including oranges. Recently, low residue levels of the fungicide were reported to be present in the bulk orange juice import shipments to the USA. Because this compound can persist through processing steps and may be found in the final consumer product, many government agencies have established maximum residue limits (MRLs) to ensure the safety of their population. Presented here is a single method, involving fast and effective QuEChERS cleanup, suitable for various orange juice matrices. The choice of PSA/C18 sorbents reduced interferences, resulting in greater recoveries and less ion-suppression. Because the QuEChERS method is fast, it only adds a few minutes to the sample preparation procedure. Sample processing using QuEChERS with PSA/C18 allows analysts to accurately process various matrices in a single workflow, with very little additional sample preparation time.

    Nutritional content of rice and pearl millet for agriculture sector

    Hidden hunger is caused by a lack of micronutrients - vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin A, Zinc and Iron) which are essential to good health. Micronutrient malnourishment can cause stunting and blindness in children and can lower IQ as well as increasing risks for mothers and infants during childbirth and lowering resistance to disease in both children and adults. The Energy dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) analyser X-Supreme8000 can screen whole grain rice samples for concentration of iron and zinc. EDXRF is faster and more cost efficient with the low cost of around 2 cents per sample compared to around $20 with current analytical methods

    Teraflo Liquid polymer water saving technology. Save Water

    TeraFlo® significantly reduces watering requirements per cycle of irrigation while maintaining adequate moisture for good plant health and growth. Due to its filtration properties, excessive moisture also flows through the soil thereby preventing environments for fungal growth. It draws moisture from the air and the surface and attaches itself to the plant roots from sources not previously available. It provides proper wetting and drainage in non-soil media as well as eliminating unusable water. TeraFlo® dramatically improves the ability of rainfall and water to easily penetrate the soil surface and gain access to the root zone. By encapsulating the soil particles, it significantly decreases friction allowing for easy and rapid water penetration and filtration into any soil condition; hardpan, compacted or otherwise. It improves the efficiency of all applied additives (pesticides, insecticides nutrients, etc) preventing rapid leaching of these products. This increases their effectiveness and reduces over all application quantities making additive usage far more cost effective. Holding organophosphates in the soil reduces the leaching of these toxins which significantly improves their performance. The product has a special affinity to nitrogen thereby reducing nitrate leaching protecting against groundwater contamination. TeraFlo® prevents the buildup of soluble sodium salts contained in fertilizers and water sources thereby reducing stress conditions. Continual use will keep the root zone free of sodium salts. TeraFlo® increases microbial activity which aids in root cell buildup resulting in faster uptake of nutrients. TeraFlo® reduces soil erosion from in-furrow irrigation and significantly reduces nitrogen loss in head ditch irrigation systems. TeraFlo® improves drip applied fumigant systems allowing for a more efficient and longer release system. Teraflo provides lubrication to pump parts, valves, and other parts of pressurized water systems preventing products in the irrigation piping from sticking to the walls, thus reducing drip and irrigation head clogging. This reduces downtime, repair costs, and maintenance.

    Measurement of oil and water in seeds for agriculture sector

    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. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC instrument provides an extremely fast, simple-to-operate answer to the question “how much oil and water is present in my seeds?`

    Fertilizers boosting soil productivity for agriculture sector

    The principle fertilisers used to boost soil productivity are phosphate based. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) and Diammonium phosphate (DAP) are used for their ability to deliver Nitrogen and Phosphorus (both macronutrients) to soil as solid fertilisers. Phosphate rock is the raw material for production and is extracted from large deposits across Florida, the Southern Mediterranean into the Middle East (namely Morocco and Saudi Arabia) and on into Russia and China. To this rock, sulfuric acid is added producing phosphoric acid. This acid is then reacted with ammonia and elemental sulfur producing a sulfur enhanced fertiliser. During this process, the dust produced can potentially reach explosive levels.

    Gas Sensing for Horticulture

    Controlled Environment Horticulture is a vast topic, and has been utilised in varying forms for centuries. Excavations of the city of Pompeii showed remains of early greenhouses dating back to AD79; and the modern greenhouses are thought to originate in the thirteenth century in Italy. Most people recognise the use of greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables, whether in their own garden, at garden centres or on a commercial basis. Indeed most people will be conversant with irrigation systems that are used to supply water to such greenhouses and the use of heaters to control the temperature and thereby extend the growing season. However, modern systems have been developed for Controlled Environment Horticulture that are designed to further optimise the growing conditions; with sophisticated computer controlled sensors, combined with advanced software models, that can control not only the temperature, light level and water, but also the level of nutrients, humidity, pH and CO2

    Salt OUT The solution to your salinity issues!

    Salt Out™ reduces or eliminates salinity stress in plant growth by sequestering sodium and chloride ions from penetrating plant root tissues. These conditions usually occur due to the buildup of salts as a result of fertilizer applications, irrigating with reclaimed, well or pond water, as well as salts deposited by ocean mist. Salt Out™ coats the plant roots disallowing the update of the salts thereby enhancing nutrient uptake resulting in rapid improvement and stabilization of turf color. Salt Out™ also contains a surfactant to ensure proper soil penetration and even moisture distribution throughout the root zone. It reduces water usage by 20% or greater.
