`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...
Delta-T Devices supplies high quality equipment to help horticultural growers and sports turf professionals monitor irrigation and control irrigation – using proven technology. Accurate measurements of growing conditions is key to effective precision irrigation – and we provide instruments that deliver reliable data to support critical decisions. The proven benefits of precision irrigation for growers include enhanced crop development (improved yield, quality and shelf life) alongside reduced fertiliser...
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.
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.
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.
Television and radio news reports and regional forecasts have their role and are important sources of general information for managing an agricultural operation. But these reports probably don’t represent the conditions at your specific site – what about your local weather conditions?
Monitor and report the flow in your irrigation system. As a manager of an irrigation district, farmer, or city operations manager, a KISTERS solution provides an effective tool for easily managing, analyzing and reporting on irrigation activities. Even use it to calculate pump efficiencies, leak detection, water balances and monitor water supply contracts!
The TracMap system comprises of a simple to use in-cab GPS flight system and a cloud based job management system called TracMap Online. Our job management system, enables you to send jobs wirelessly to pilots from your desktop or mobile device, and receive all the data you need (exact area treated, product used, climate etc.) from each job that has been completed.
MixRite Water Driven Injectors are water powered proportioning pumps that require no electricity and deliver accurate dispensing across varying water pressure and water flow and are ideally suited for in-line injection. MixRites are available in a number of models with injection rates from 0.1% to 10%, different sizes for water flow from .08 gpm (3L per min.) to 110 gpm (415L per min.), and various materials to withstand a multitude of aggressive acids, alkalines and solvents. MixRites have numerous in-line...

Our solutions give growers greater control and increased flexibility through the provision of precise real time data stored within the system. This allows for irrigation and fertigation decisions to be made instantaneously. Incorporating Weather Data and Soil Moisture Data into the real time irrigation system means that water is only applied when it is required and no more than necessary because the sensors are in place giving real time feedback from the field. WiSA systems are in use across numerous crop types...
applications that include:
Agricultural and landscape irrigation
Industrial water processing
Industrial wastewater treatment
Municipal water treatment (drinking and waste treatment)
Prefiltration to protect costly media and reverse-osmosis systems
