Hydroponics Applications

  • Automated Control Systems for Aquaculture

    Argus is an automated control systems pioneer with over thirty years of leadership and innovation in control technology. We were among the first to use computers for integrating the control of greenhouse environments and irrigation systems. Today our systems are used in horticulture and biotechnology research facilities, universities, aquaculture and aquaponics, and many other custom control applications at sites throughout the world.

  • Super Absorbent Water Management Agrotextiles

    Our Agrotas range of Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF) and converted products allow you to achieve optimum nurturing and growth conditions whilst effectively reducing overall water usage. Our unique fibrous technology creates new possibilities for the development of nonwoven fabrics that can be used as both temporary and long-term solutions, from hanging basket liners to commercial scale projects, even in areas of low water availability. Such fabrics are designed to achieve highly controlled delivery of water and nutrients to root systems, whilst significantly reducing evaporative loss and water seepage. SAF can also be dosed directly to the soil. Advantages: •Ease of handling and installation •Wide range of formats •Suitable for short-and long-term use •Reduced re-watering periods •Enhanced establishment times •Accurate, consistent nutrient distribution

  • 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.

    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.

    `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.
