Precise Concentration 

HANNA Instruments:

The HANNA Fertigation System provides precise control of pH and fertilizer injection. Unlike flow-driven systems of the past, the HANNA Fertigation System constantly measures the actual EC and pH of the water, allowing the system to add the precise concentration of fertilizer directly to the irrigation supply. The HANNA System is a bypass system, which does not limit line flow or pressure, allowing injection from 5 gpm up to 300 gpm accurately. The HI8000 series controller included with the system has 10 programs that allow the user to set various EC and pH values for a variety of plants. The system also controls up to 32 irrigation valves.

 

Controlling Growth

Ball Seed and SePRO:

For the spring 2007 season, SePRO’s plant growth regulator, A-Rest, will be available as a seed treatment on selected bedding plants in the United States exclusively through Ball Seed Company. Treated seed will be sold as Ball Controlled Growth Seed as part of the Ball Premier Line. Ball Controlled Growth combines the high-quality benefits of A-Rest for control of early seedling stretch with seed technology from Ball Seed. By determining the optimum treatment rate of A-Rest for each seed lot and applying the treatment during the coating or pelleting process, Ball Controlled Growth provides consistent, early growth control. 

 

Pumped Up

Westcott Distribution Inc.:

The new GT Multi-pump Dispensing System is the latest addition to Westcott Distribution Inc.’s line of cost-effective pumping solutions for spill-free, environmentally safe transference of virtually any chemical or liquid. The new pumping system is designed to expand capability and streamline operations where multiple process chemicals are dispensed. The new GT Multi-pump Dispensing System allows simultaneous multiple liquid transfer stations to operate from a single compressor line at 2 psi. The basic system handles up to four pumps simultaneously. Additional system components can be added to meet any requirement. 

 

Underwater Logger 

Onset Computer Corporation:

Onset Computer Corporation recently announced the TidbiT v2, a compact data logger for underwater temperature monitoring applications. Offering higher resolution and increased memory capacity over the company’s original TidbiT data logger, the new TidbiT v2 provides reliable temperature measurements at depths of up to 1,000 feet. Other features include fast, reliable data offload via a high-speed optic-USB interface, battery status check and a long-life battery.

 

Right On Time 

Mitchell Ellis Products, Inc.:

A new time release fertilizer from Mitchell Ellis Products will soon be available in North America. The product has been marketed in China and Southeast Asia for the last four years with a growing market. Retail versions and packing will be available, as well as different formulations for wholesale growers. Most colors will be available for release periods, and an optimized formula is available on request.
