Product Launch: Modular Wall Inlet
In agriculture applications an ideal climatic environment is essential as it can impact production and the health of animals. Proper air quality through ventilation is one of the main requirements in order to achieve optimum performance in growth rate, uniformity and feed efficiency, which can therefore ensure high profit margins. Poor air quality can provoke high concentrations of dust, ammonia (NH3), CO, CO2, excess humidity RH and failure to keep these contaminants below acceptable limits can trigger diseases,...
India`s poultry industry adds to drug resistance
