UV disinfection is popular for treating water used in horticultural applications, as it introduces no chemicals or by-products which can stress plants and lower crop quality.
Leading OEMs manufacture specific UV systems to continually disinfect the water being used in various soil based and soil-less plant cultivation techniques, such as hydroponic systems. UV disinfection does not affect the pH or chemistry of the water and neutralises many organisms problematic to commercial horticulturalists such as fungi,...
Subsurface drip Irrigation Systems (SDI) are a suitable agronomic option for all type of crops: woody crops (almond tree, vineyard, olive tree, pistachio tree, peach tree, etc.) and extensive crops (corn, vetch, barley, alfalfa, etc.). The SDI is an irrigation technique that allows the supply of water and nutrients in a localized way under the surface. This fact conditions and optimizes the growing of roots and the development of the plant. This practice makes possible a more efficient use of the water, energy...
It is an irrigation system that uses a main network to distribute the filtered and pressurized water to the emitting pipes under the surface of the terrain and together the crop line. The emitters in line supply a unique flow rate by each emitting point that is among the interval of 0,6-8l/h. The volume of water supplied under the surface of the soil (nearest the plants) generates a spatial distribution of the same named “dump bulb”. The shape and size of this “dump bulb” is different from the surface localized...

For more than a decade Oxymat has been the preferred oxygen supplier to all major fish farms within recirculation technology. Knowing fish farming to the bone; Pure oxygen is essential in all modern fish farming. Pure oxygen dosed in correct way ensures faster growths rates, better FCR, less stress and diseases and better prices selling the fish due to higher quality. We understand the environment of fish farming and the need for a 100 % reliable oxygen source. Oxymat has delivered oxygen generator systems for...
Healthier animals, higher income, significantly lower use of drugs and disinfectants
Up until now, REDO units have primarily been applied on chicken breeding farms, as well as in the milk production, for the disinfecting of stables and for supplying the animals with water. The REDO disinfecting solution has a long term depot effect on the animal drinking water, which on the average maintains the water germ-free longer.
Germ-free water is an indispensable basic element, during various production phases in the...
Chemigation is the process of injecting chemicals into an irrigation system, and only Mazzei makes this process inexpensive and easy to maintain. Using high-efficiency Venturi injectors, Mazzei chemigation delivers precise mixing and uniform distribution of material into the water stream. Mazzei chemical injectors have no moving parts, and typically require no supplemental pump system. They rely instead on a vacuum to transfer irrigation chemicals, providing additional safety. Mazzei patented designs are precisely...
Salt Out™ reduces or eliminates salinity stress in plant growth by sequestering sodium and chloride ions from penetrating plant root tissues. These conditions usually occur due to the buildup of salts as a result of fertilizer applications, irrigating with reclaimed, well or pond water, as well as salts deposited by ocean mist.
Salt Out™ coats the plant roots disallowing the update of the salts thereby enhancing nutrient uptake resulting in rapid improvement and stabilization of turf color.
Salt Out™ also...
DPI GLOBAL technologies are 100 percent natural and environmentally safe, a key consideration for the horticulture industry. Whether you`re managing turf grass at a golf course or raising horticultural crops, DPI GLOBAL offers all-natural surfactants that fit today’s need for powerful solutions that are also gentle on the environment.
Our ozone wash-down systems are currently in use in numerous seafood food processing applications such as retail fish markets, wholesale seafood plants and commercial fishing boat fleets. Water is pumped through the Ozone wash-down system and mixed with Ozone. Ozonated water is then sprayed as a disinfectant directly onto the cleaning surface or product upon demand, destroying pathogens and bacteria which cause spoilage, giving greater shelf life, saving money, and reducing liability by destroying deadly bacteria.
In the late nineties, long before `Biodiesel` and `Bioethanol` were commonly known, Aerox already developed solutions to get rid of odours from oil seed processing! This industry gains oil and meal out of the seeds of grains, like soy or rapeseed / canola. The oil is used in feed and food industry, but nowadays also can be used to produce biodiesel or bioethanol.
Research project where no chemicals are used in water treatment and water is only added to replace any evaporated water. The fish are grown in a tank with closed water circuit. The waste produced by fish are utilized by growing algae. The grown algae are returned for fish feed. Our method allows efficient and environmentally friendly fish farming that can be placed near the consumer.
TenCate Geotube technology is used for agriculture applications to reduce the waste in lagoons and utilize the contained nutrients for crops. This dewatering technology reduces the lagoon size by 50%, reduces labor and energy for land application by 50-70%, stores contained nutrients until needed for crops, provides higher quality flush water and reduces the odor and insect problems normally encountered. Over time, these solids dry in the dewatering containers, making the contained nutrients easier to transport...
The olive tree is one of the most traditional and old crop of the Mediterranean areas. The olive oil obtained has served for centuries as food and applications such as raw material to lighting and medical products. The actual situation is exceptional due to it high demand and profitability, thanks to the successful food campaign which stands out its therapeutic and nutritive properties. The crop surface is continuously growing. Spain and Italy are the main producers worldwide, followed by Greece, Turkey and...
The concentration of fertilizers, biostimulants, microorganisms, drugs and plant protection products affect the plant development, growth, and yields. Determining the optimal concentration of different treatments together with the watering regime (i.e. drought conditions) is a great challenge from both an agronomic and environmental aspect. For example, the efficient application of fertilizers optimize plant performance, however, over-fertilization will contaminate the soil and adjacent water bodies (groundwater,...
Abiotic stresses refer to environmental influences such as drought (water deficit), salinity, excessive watering (water-logging/flooding), extreme temperatures (cold, frost and heat), and toxic substances that negatively impact growth, development, yield and seed quality of crops and other plants.
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.
Simple installation, ease of use, and reliability make the xProxy® alert system an ideal solution for wireless remote center pivot stop alerts.
