`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...
We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
Agro-meteorological application (AgMet) are becoming more and more important. With a rising world population, agricultural production has to become more efficient. Water is precious and scarce, pesticides are expensive and harmful to the environment if they get into the soil.
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
Improve your yields and control costs across your entire farm through automated oxygen monitoring and remote systems control. Continuous oxygen monitoring lets you fine-tune feed ratios to minimize fish stress, disease and mortality. Plus, save time and money with more efficient data collection and systems management.
Supplying water used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils is best done by lightweight and sustainable thermoplastic pipe and fitting systems.
Agriculture is by far the largest water use at global level. Irrigation of agricultural lands accounted for 70% of the water used worldwide. In several developing countries, irrigation represents up to 95% of all water uses, and plays a major role in food production and food security. Future agricultural development strategies of most of these countries depend on the possibility to maintain, improve and expand irrigated agriculture.
Increase your yields while reducing costs at your growing operation. In-Situ’s easy-to-use equipment keeps your hatchery running smoothly, even in harsh conditions. Our solutions simplify aquaculture management, boosting efficiency through faster, more accurate monitoring.
Use KISTERS solutions for gathering of meteorological, soil, and other timely crop data from the field. Easily remove the difficulties in comparing statistics and validating information collected for the monitoring and measuring of agricultural production.
The waste water from these companies usually has a high demand in oxygen chemistry (DOQ), normally due to proteins and fats. They have high concentrations of chlorine, sulphate and sodium because, in many cases, the processes involve seawater.
Water treatment in life support systems either in aquaculture or aquariums is fundamental for incoming water and recirculating water process. Our range of filters are designed in order to get the best water quality, controlling parameters such as: Suspended particles, toxic substances present in water, dissolved oxygen, pathogens and other microorganisms.
The main objective of AZUD is the development of technologies and products that allow the efficient use and the maximum profitability of a scarce resource as the water is. AZUD is among the world leaders regarding the manufacturing of irrigatioin, filtration and fertigation systems and it is involved in the development of the agriculture in the social, ecological and productive area. AZUD offers so much manufactured products as other irrigation elements to complete the system.
Nicolon Ground Cover Fabrics control weeds found in land maintained by professional growers and landscapers. These highly useful fabrics feature woven polypropylene that allows water and nutrients to pass through while preventing roots from implanting into the soil. Available in widths from 3 to 15 feet (0.90 x 4.5m), Nicolon ground cover fabrics can also be utilized in soil separation and barrier fencing applications.
Your hydroponic growing media should do several things: wick and retain water, provide a stable pH, drain well and not fall apart so your system stays clean. Quick Plug North America offers the hydroponic grower several product lines with these characteristics. Our FlexiPlug® and FlexiTray® growing medium is optimized for all industry standard systems: Nutrient Film Technique, Ebb & Flow, Deep Water Raft, Aeroponic, and Drip. We have been working with hydroponic and aquaponic companies all over the...

Maintaining the fragile balance of the ecosystem of surface water is a burning environmental issue. Such as natural surface waters fish farms are also vulnerable by any unexpected growth of algae or poisoning. Based on the detailed reports generated by WaterScope immediate intervention is possible in case of changes in the ecosystem. Healthy water means higher quality fishes and cost efficient operation of fish farms.
