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, research grade equipment to help growers monitor and control irrigation using proven technology:
improve water use efficiency
reduce fertiliser application rates
enhance crop development
The complete Plastic-Puglia systems for irrigation and fertigation of tree crops (such as hazelnuts, citrus groves, olive groves, vineyards) allow a greater yield of the crops and a saving on the available resources.
The solutions for irrigation and fertigation of horticultural and floricultural crops in the open field (such as maize, tomato, potato, onion, strawberries, roses, carnations) allow the right supply of water and nutrients to each plant, where it is needed.
Plastic-Puglia dedicates part of its research and development of innovative products to farmers and especially, to nursery farms. The company manufactures the eco seed-trays, for horticultural use, high density polyethylene case for fruit and vegetable domain, draining and closed polyethylene tubs, ideal for nursery plants.
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.
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?
Using wireless sensor networks within the agricultural industry is increasingly common, as it provides many benefits to the farmer, impacting both the quality of the crops and the overall operating costs. WSN address the traditional monitoring problems related to oudoor areas, by removing the need of cables and of power sources in locations where no infrastructure is available. WSN are also specially suitable for temporary or problem-solving deployments, and to gather more numerous and more consistent data.
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...
AgraGel® (T-400) water crystals are potassium based, organic cross linked co-polymers with water binding groups.
In dry form, they are white, crystalline granules with a neutral pH and when hydrated, become a gel which retains fluids, even under soil pressure and in the presence of fertilizers and other soil additives.
AgraGel® (T-400) water crystals are characterized by high volume absorption and fluid retention and are available in a variety of crystal sizes for various soil requirements.
In 2008, Watertronics became part of Lindsay Corporation, a Nebraska-based global manufacturer of agricultural irrigation products. Being a market leader in pump and control innovation, Watertronics was an excellent fit for Lindsay - matching water supply with water distribution… pumps with pivots. Watertronics products include not only pump stations, but advanced controls technology for high efficiency pumping that produces significant energy savings and labor savings. Today the Ag market is benefiting...
