The moment of digital transformation is now. The first step, digitalization of existing processes is becoming a must for most environmental consultants, field engineers and laboratories. Besides the fact that having your data digital means it would be ‘more convenient’ or that it is harder to lose important data, why is digitalization so important? And...

In the 40’s in post-war Japan an agricultural scientist turned his back on conventional practices and started an interesting experiment. Masanobu Fukuoka wanted to try agriculture the natural way; without ploughing, without herbicides and pesticides, and even without excessive weeding of his fields. The result? The crops seemed to be stronger and more resilient, and his costs to produce went down significantly. Basically, by doing nothing it was perfectly viable to grow crops. Fukuoka named his method “Shizen Noho”, or “Do-nothing farming”. Being kind to soil seems to bear fruits.

TerraIndex: Mixture toxicity and interactions: A complex affair

There is a quote attributed to the medieval scientist Paracelcus: “Only the dose makes the poison” (Latin: dosis sola facit venenum), pointing out that every parameter can be toxic, as long as it is present in the right dose. This might sound odd, but the fact is that this dose for parameters that we don’t see as toxic for our health is just very high. Even water can be toxic, because if we drink too much of it (keyword: too), the heart will be unable to continue to pump. Within environmental research some groups of hazardous parameters are analysed so that an assessment can be made to conclude if exposure to these parameters is a danger to our health. However in these assessments we usually look at one parameter and one threshold at a time. Reality is a little more complex than that.

Not only are we busy with the development of our software, but also the website has recently been given a refresh. Therefore, we proudly present the new website of TerraIndex. The current website is more in line with what we want to convey as a company. We have ensured that information about our product is clearly displayed. It is also easy for a visitor to navigate to relevant information. "Searching for interesting news items or events has also been simplified. As with the development of our software, the website is also user-centered." The development of the website is certainly not finished yet. We are currently working on the creation of a short film that will clarify who we are, what the product does and what we can mean for customers in their (field) work. So keep an eye on our website for the latest updates on TerraIndex and our product.
