Agriculture is an industry at the very heart of our world. Everyday farmers ensure we have livestock, fish and crops to feed our families and with the global population ever increasing we have had to find smarter, safer and more efficient and environmentally friendly ways of farming.
Analox provides a wide range of gas analyzers and detection systems which can help improve process analysis and site and staff safety.
Livestock farming is the biggest contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). On average, one cow produces around 300 litres of methane (CH4) per week. One way we can protect the environment and make pastoral farming less damaging is through nutritional and genetic research. Analyzers can be utilized to measure the levels of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) being expelled from the animal's digestive system.
Horticulture provides us with delicious crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers but also now provides us with medical resources such as cannabis. Cannabis derived pharmaceuticals and CBD oil can be used to treat medical conditions such as cancer, arthritis, anxiety, Parkinsons, Alzheimers and chronic pain.
Horticulture relies on a process called carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment, the levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) are increased to speed up photosynthesis enabling crops to flourish, increasing both yield and profitability.
It is critical to know when the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels reach the optimal amount but it is also important to ensure they reduce to a safe level before staff enter the greenhouse to tend to the crops. Installing a carbon dioxide (CO2) monitor protects your team from this toxic gas.
Aquaculture, or fish farming is the control and monitoring of dissolved oxygen (O2) in the harvesting of fish such as shrimp, carp, trout and salmon. This oxygen (O2) enrichment is vital to maintain the health and productivity of the stock. However, a leak of enriched oxygen is a potential fire hazard and there is also a medical risk of hypoxia if someone were to be exposed to high levels of oxygen. It is important to monitor the areas the oxygen (O2) is being used and stored to protect your site and staff.
Whatever your application, Analox can offer the solution for you.
In 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to make it legal to grow, sell and consume cannabis.
