    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.

    Instruments and analyzers for agriculture minimum temperature

    Prediction of minimum temperature and frost damage is a common method and important application in the field of agriculture like outdoors crops growth. In particular the areas where vegetation can be exposed to low temperatures, frost can be disastrous for young plants or fruits. Heat loss measurements inside a greenhouse is a similar application to control the temperature of the crop. When the IR radiation exchange is measured with a pyrgeometer, special screens can be closed when temperature are expected to drop rapidly.

  • Bioaqua

    BIOAQUA is a microbiological product base on a mixture of selectively adapted bacteria, which accelerates the decomposition of organic matter, the degradation of wastes, consumes excessive nutrients and sediments at the bottom of lakes. BIOAQUA prevents and controls excess algae or an algae bloom at Municipal lakes or public fountains. BIOAQUA acts as a highly efficient probiotic that competes with a wide range of aquatic pathogenic and diseases. BIOAQUA prevents and diminishes the eutrophication effect by competing, for food, with algae that receive nutrition form fish waste, over feeding fish, decaying organic matter (leaves & plants), lawn fertilizers.
