    Water treatment for Hydroponics industry

    `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...

    Gas analyzers and monitoring systems for greenhouse gases from ruminants

    Ruminant livestock generates a significant proportion of anthropogenic GHG emissions, and thereby contribute to Climate Change. Ruminants such as cattle, sheep, goats and buffalo produce meat and milk through enteric fermentation – a digestive process in which microbes decompose and ferment food in the digestive tract or rumen. This process produces methane which is emitted via belching. The amount of methane produced is directly related to the type of food consumed and the level of intake, in addition to...

  • Feeding Solutions for Dairy

    Supplementing with fresh barley grass in a typical daily diet of a cow in mid lactation improves milk production, increases fertility and gives rise to a healthier animal requiring less veterinarian care. Barley grown hydroponically as a supplemental feed not only keeps dairy cattle healthy but can give premium prices from higher grades of butter fat in the milk. Each kilogram of barley fodder is equivalent nutritionally to 3kgs of lucerne. In one study of milk production, with a diet of barley fodder versus one...

  • Nutrient testing for the agriculture industry

    Different sorts of food and agricultural products may contain various concentrations of nutrients, ranging from trace amounts to percentage levels. While most of these nutrient concentrations are healthy, some can be toxic to humans or animals. Bruker offers simple and effective nutrient testing solutions for the determination of nutritional elements in food and agricultural samples with routine and reliable nutrient analysis. All of our solutions enable fast, accurate and precise measurement of nutritional...

  • Aeration of Fish basins

    Salmonoids are especially demanding about water quality and high oxygen content. The oxygen concentration should be kept at least 5 mg/l throughout the year. This ensures good condition of fish and facilitates quick maturity without disturbances. Sufficient oxygen content near the basin bottom (2 mg/l) prevents leaching of nutrients and in particular phosphor into the water. Dissolved nutrients have a detrimental impact on water quality and – at worst – can cause growth of cyanobacterium. Furthermore,...

  • Determination of the carbendazim content in orange and other citrus juice produce

    Introduction 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...

  • Analysis of Herbicides in Drinking Water

    Herbicides are used throughout the world to combat the growth of unwanted plant life. These polar compounds are hydrophilic, so they may find their way into drinking water sources. While gas chromatography has historically been the preferred technique for analysis of herbicides in water samples, the use of LC-MS/MS for this application is gaining acceptance. This is due to the power of MS/MS to provide detailed identification of multiple analytes, but also in part due to the variety of HPLC stationary phases...

  • 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...
