Ozone in Agriculture

Ozone in Agriculture

1. General for Ozone Irrigation for Agriculture

Ozonated water used for Irrigation provides oxygen to the root making it free of virus, bacteria, fungi, seaweed, spores and any other microorganisms, and further promotes fast and steady growth, with more aliveness as well as more productivity.


 Ozone improves the respiratory process at cellular level. The direct germicidal action of ozone is well-known against all types of microorganisms, such as fungi, bacteria and virus. Ozone fight against bacteria such as: pseudomonas, Flavobacterium, streptococcus, Legionella, etc. In the particular cases of fungi and bacteria which are the main cause of degradation of vegetables. Ozone is very effective against these microorganisms which are able to propagate and reproduce in harsh and extreme conditions also.


 It is known that the spores mentioned are very resistant when the conditions are adverse for them and can remain for a long time in latency, being transferred from one place to another through air or other ways, until they again find propitious condition for growing, in this case it is extremely difficult to eradicate such infection using other alternates and is such cases ozone proves to be very effective and provides complete protection.


 Ozone is a very powerful germicidal agent, which is able to eliminate parasitic bacteria's, virus, fungi and cysts, without forming toxic compounds or leaving harmful residues behind, since it decomposes back to oxygen. Ozone is extremely useful for irrigating fruit trees, vineyards and cultures in preventing them from deadly diseases.

2. The benefits of Ozone Irrigation for Algriculture



l  Protects Against Diseases

Most of the diseases of the plants take place due to infection. Ozone destroys all the microorganisms present in water as well as increases the oxygen content. Irrigation using Ozonated water also protects against contagious diseases, destroys bacteria, virus and parasitic cysts, which are difficult to fight using other alternative methods. Use of pesticides and other chemical agents leave behind residues, which are harmful for human consumption and for the environment as well on the other hand ozone does not leave behind any residue and decomposes back to oxygen.

Moreover, any product irrigated with ozonised water, stored and transported in ozonized atmosphere, conserves all its characteristics for a much longer time.


l  Promotes Better Growth

Irrigation using Ozonated water consist greater amount of Oxygen content as ozone decomposes back to Oxygen once it comes in contact with impurities present in the water. The ozonised water that is used for irrigation is free from viruses, bacteria, fungi, seaweed, spores and any other microorganisms. Water in the absence of germs confers to the best conditions possible to obtain faster growth, the plant grows with more aliveness, more vitality and force and it will be able to grow within a very short duration of time (between 30 to 40 days from the beginning).


l  Provides More Benefit

Irrigation using Ozonated water provides a more voluminous and productive harvest which is obtained in a very short duration of time, implying a huge saving in amount of water used for irrigation and the cost for fertilizer and additives which are further used to promote faster growth. The use of fertilizer and additives is reduced to almost 50%, when Ozonated water is used for irrigation purpose, due to which the cycle of maturation of crops is completed within a very short duration of time and represents the same size, strength and volume which are gained using fertilizers and additives.


l  Improves Taste And Flavour

Use of Ozonated water for irrigation increases the taste and flavor of the harvest.
