GeoSense Environmental Monitoring Systems for Agriculture

GeoSense

Overview

GeoSense is a vertically integrated provider of environmental monitoring systems and decision support systems for agriculture, with a diverse offering of nodes and sensors, mesh networks, and data aggregation.

Having installed real-time monitoring stations for microclimate, water, soil and plant health variables in around 45 locations in over eight continents, Professor Philip Sallis and his team at the AUT Geoinformatics Research Centre have developed and refined this system. The system has been proven to be a reliable source of information for supporting daily decision making in the vineyard and on the orchard. This has involved custom improvements to off-the-shelf sensors and calibration tools to increase sensor robustness, sensitivity and accuracy, as well as improvements to wireless network components and optimisation systems for power management.

Genesis Algae Breeding and Fermentation System

GBS04a

Overview

The Genesis Breeding System (GBS) and Genesis Fermentation System (GFS) provide a state-of-the-art solution for extracting protein and oil from algae cells for use in the production of high-quality commercial animal feeds.

GBS is the most economical and environmentally-friendly algae breeding system on the market. With its unique technology, GBS doesn’t require fresh water, a dedicated CO2 source, cropland, or even high-cost nutrients for algae cultivation. Energy consumption is also extremely low as well because of its wind-powered system. Continue reading Genesis Algae Breeding and Fermentation System

Ganoderma Strains Coculture for Health Foods

NV02

Overview

Ganoderma Lucidum is a medicinal mushroom that has been employed in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years and provides a natural source of antioxidants and phytonutrients. The patent-pending Ganoderma strains coculture and medium formulations that are produced using this innovative new process not only have a higher concentration of the active Lucidum ingredient than ones using traditional batch fermentation processes that require high-temperature sterilization.

The formulations ensure much better taste in beverages and other processed products and open up interesting opportunities for the development of innovative new value-added applications that leverage the nutritional qualities of Ganoderma. Continue reading Ganoderma Strains Coculture for Health Foods
