The objective of ozone pulverization is to obtain an important increase in the quality and production of crops by limiting the growth of pathogenic microorganisms, both fungi and bacteria, using irrigation water and ozone to achieve a very high disinfection capacity through the use of an environmentally faultless technology, biological without restrictions and at the same time clean and sustainable without any waste.
When ozonation is achieved, the elimination of phytosanitary residues that could exist in agricultural irrigation water, as well as that of detergents and organic compounds such as phenols that frequently found in water, is achieved, converting all these contaminants into easily assimilable substances by crops transforming a toxic substance, easily detectable in the final product, into a nutrient for the crop.
With the ozone pulverization, it is also possible to limit the growth of pathogenic microorganisms in the crops so that a balance is reached and the pathogens are prevented from being the dominant population. In this way the spread of diseases is prevented and a continuous oxygenation of the soil is achieved to improve the preformance of the farms.
It is very important to note that ozone pulverization can be done in any phenological stage of the crop, it has no safety term, it can be applied as many times as desired and harvest the crop right after. In addition, the applications are made without any type of protection equipment and without the need for specialized personnel, which means, there is no need for a pesticide applicator title.
To sumarize, the ozone pulverization is:
- Very effective in the elimination of fungi, molds and their diseases.
- It obtains more robust and healthier plants, protected from infections.
- It is a great saving of additives (fertilizers, insecticides, etc).
- The products are more homogeneous and with a better presence.
- It achieves a better conservation of the produce once collected.
