`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...
Accuracy and ease of use make SM300 Soil Moisture Sensors well suited to irrigation applications. Readings can be used to optimise irrigation scheduling, or the SM300 can be installed as part of an automatic irrigation system. The sensor`s compact size allows it to be installed in plant pots or grow bags.
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:
improve water use efficiency
reduce fertiliser application rates
enhance crop development
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...
The water supply and irrigation industry provides drinking water treatment to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial sectors of the economy. This industry requires products and solutions for soil vapor extraction/groundwater remediation; chemical, biological and mechanical odor control; and fluid handling and filtration.
Accurate measurement of flow rate is an important factor in aquaculture research. With aquaculture playing an increasingly important role in the provision of global fish supplies, there is a corresponding growth in aquaculture related research to support the industry and optimise its activities.
F VA Trogflux rotameter flow meters have been supplied to a number of marine science centres and environmental laboratories to monitor the flow of water through fish tanks / cells and assess the impact of flow on fish...
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.
In parts of the world the cost of water for irrigation has increased tenfold in the last year, driven both by scarcity of resource compared to demand and legislative controls that are forcing water distributors and farmers to examine their historical practices.
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.
Since 1987, TECNIDRO works in the agriculture field, offering a vast range of products specifically designed for this special market. TECNIDRO offers different line of automatic control valves, manufactured in cast iron, ductile iron and in technoplastic materials like PVC or reinforced PU or Nylon. Each line specifically designed to improve irrigation system efficiency while helping to save water. This efficiency means also an overall cost reductions, due to longer life components and simpler maintenance.
Our lab is certified and equipped to serve our clients by identifying pathogens from samples obtained from soil, water and plants. A variety of tests can be offered for pathogens detection and pathogen identification in the lab. In addition, our scientists, with training in plant protection, will be available to provide consulting services to our clients for additional support. Our timely support can help you to prevent plant diseases from spreading or happening.
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.
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.
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.
