`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...
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.
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 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...
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.

Corn refiners process corn into different components such as: starch, germ, fiber, and gluten to process it further for additional end uses. Processing is done in dry mills or wet mills. Mixing and agitation is central to the performance of a corn wet milling plant.
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!

A new TTFM 1.0 Transit Time Flowmeter monitors and logs irrigation water pumped to sprinklers at Summerheights Golf Links. The clamp-on flowmeter is used to comply with a Ministry of Environment permit.
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.
Farmers in the 21st century are using efficient irrigation technology such as drip systems to maximize their usage of one of our most valuable commodities - water. Water flow rates to irrigated areas can be controlled effectively, concentrating the application of water in the immediate vicinity of the crops and adjusting the quantity of water delivered. The next step in precision irrigation is accurate knowledge of soil moisture content around the crop so that the amount of water and the frequency at which it is...
For wine growers it isn`t just a question of giving your vines enough water - sometimes they need to stress their grapes by depriving them of moisture to ensure that the fruit reaches the quality sought by the winemaker. In particular, soil moisture levels are critically important to the management of sugar and anthocyanin in the initial stages of ripening right the way through to the production of flavor compounds in the later stages of the lifecycle of the grape.
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.
The Tiger Dam™ system can be used to transport or divert water from rivers similar to irrigation channels. The product can be used to contain or channel water to agricultural areas versus excavating costly irrigation ditches, used only in low precipitation years.
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.
