Agribusiness is a collective term for a variety of activities within the agriculture production. It includes amongst others the production of agrichemicals (e.g. pestizides, fertilizer), breeding, crop production, processing and distribution.

Use of water in agricultural production

In agribusiness water is used in crop production (e.g. farming), for cleaning and sanitation, as an ingredient or component of a product, as well as in processing operations (e.g. cooling, heating) amongst others. To ensure high quality production, as well as process safety, online or laboratory water analysis is of special importance.

Using LAR's analyzers operators can rely on fast and reliable measurement systems that meet the tough demands of the various applications in agricultural, food and beverage production (e.g. water pretreatment, plant influent, power generation, cooling, boiler feed water, product losses, waste water treatment).
