`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...
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
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.
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.
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...
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.

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.
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.
TeraFlo® significantly reduces watering requirements per cycle of irrigation while maintaining adequate moisture for good plant health and growth. Due to its filtration properties, excessive moisture also flows through the soil thereby preventing environments for fungal growth. It draws moisture from the air and the surface and attaches itself to the plant roots from sources not previously available. It provides proper wetting and drainage in non-soil media as well as eliminating unusable water. TeraFlo®...
It is a fruit tree of great importance worldwide, coming from china and from the rosaceous family. The countries of bigger production of peach are the United States, Spain, Italy and Greece. Spain, from the European point of view is the third producer with 900.000 tons and 78.000 hectares. Most of the production (around the 70%) is intended for the fresh consume and the rest to the industry. The main producer areas in Spain are: Valle del Ebro, Lérida y Murcia.
