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.
Irrigating crops with Ozonated water is beneficial due to the following
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
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).
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.
Improves Taste And Flavour
Use of Ozonated water for irrigation increases
the taste and flavor of the harvest.
Advantages Of Using Ozonated Water
- Since Ozone is very strong germicidal agent, it almost eliminates
infection causing microorganism and in return provides better product in
terms of volume, weight, size, strength, nutritious value and taste.
- Ozone has very powerful and strong oxidation capability and thus
destroys organic waste by oxidizing it.
- Ozone is very environmental friendly as it does not leave behind any
harmful residues unlike other pesticides, fertilizers and additives used
for growing crops as it decomposes back to Oxygen.
- Use of Ozonated water for irrigation ensures that plants grow more
vigorously and are healthier, free form any kind of contagious diseases.
