Horticulture Monitoring Applications

  • Fertigation Monitoring /Nutrient Concentration Monitoring

    We have optimized six and four ion probes for horticultural applications. For growers, these products offer a “lab-in-hand” solution — a quick and affordable way to maintain the proper nutrient balance required for better yield, improved flavor and color, greater disease resistance and longer shelf life. Controlling the concentration of nutrients in liquids is a vital step in the fertigation process. Today, nutrient levels are tested daily, most commonly by measuring pH and EC, and dispatching samples to offsite labs for analysis. This traditional testing protocol is time-consuming and costly, and delays access to information on potential yield-threatening nutrient levels.

  • Measuring Ion Concentrations in Hydroponics Samples

    Required Apparatus:

    • Aptisens Digital or Mobile Multiple Ion Kit

    Required chemicals:

    • Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution
    • Aptisens multiple ion HORTICULTURE calibration solutions
    • Deionised water

    Sample Preparation:
    Typically, it is not a requirement to filter a hydroponics sample.

    Calibration:
    Before use the multiple ion probe must be conditioned in Aptisens multiple ion conditioning solution. Ensure the correct calibration solutions for a three-point calibration are set up on the Mobile meter or MeterLink. Follow the instructions for calibration and proceed to take a sample reading when the calibration data is ‘very good’ or ‘good’ for all ions.

    Sample Reading:
    Place the probe in the aqueous extract and ‘Take a Sample’ reading. The concentrations for each ion will be displayed in ppm or mmol / L.

    Probe Care:
    After taking your reading be sure to remove the sensors from the solution as quickly as possible, rinse with deionised water and replace the cap of the probe.
