    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.

    Measurement of oil content in jatropha curcas seeds for energy/environment sector

    The use of biofuels as a substitute for mineral petroleum-based fuels is now an important part of the world economy. This substitution process both minimises the use of irreplaceable mineral petroleum reserves and reduces the addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Jatropha Curcas seeds are a high oil content seed and are of particular interest since the plants grow on almost any terrain and do not compete for agricultural land required for food crops. The maximisation of oil content is the driving force behind oil seed breeding programmes and the measurement of oil in Jatropha seeds is important in both trading and processing. In both of these cases, a simple and reliable means of measuring the oil content of the seeds is required.

  • 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

  • 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.
