`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 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...
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.
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?
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.
Tea plant is a shrub that develops in tropical or subtropical climates, coming from continental China, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Japan, Nepal, Austria and Kenya. Tea trees are cultivated in gardens, huge forests of small trees. The bigger producers worldwide are China and India; both produce the 50% of the total. The tea production is very competitive all around the world. Not technified irrigation systems, obsolete and the lack of water are the most important factors that reduce the tea production.
Grapevine is a deciduous bush belonging to Vitaceas family. Its scientific name is Vitis vinífera. Its economic importance is due to its fruit, the grape, used so much for direct consumption as fermented to produce wine.
