By using an ozone generator to disinfect agricultural soils, it is possible to prepare them for cultivation, leaving no residue behind. The use of chemical phytosanitary is avoided, and with it, the pollution they generate. Thus, it is easier and safer to get rid of pathogens, such as aerobic mesophilic microorganisms, which are those that are found in the soil more frequently, disappear from the field of harvest.
According to a series of studies carried out by the Economic Development Agency (EDA) of Castilla y León, in Palencia, it has shown that the disinfection achieved by an ozone generator in the soil is only surpassed by the application of methyl bromide, a phytosanitary product that is very polluting and harmful to the health of the person who applies it, and which is now prohibited
Why does ozone leave no residue?
Ozone is the substance that occurs naturally in the upper layers of the atmosphere through the action of ultraviolet rays on atmospheric oxygen, forming the ozonosphere (also known as the ozone layer), whose mission is precisely to filter, absorb and reflect ultraviolet radiation from the sun to space.
Ozone, under normal temperatures, is in a gaseous state in an unstable solution in the air, so when applied, this substance decomposes relatively quickly, becoming again oxygen (O2), something that is not only harmless, but beneficial for environment.
Disinfection with ozone is full of advantages
Ozone, a gas with great oxidizing power, is very effective at removing microorganisms and weeds. Also, it does not contaminate, because it does not leave any residue in the floors, only oxygen. It does not pollute because the product resulting from the decomposition of ozone is the oxygen itself, so that, once the treatment is done, in a matter of minutes all the waste disappears, and no remains that could contaminate the soil, continue to be.
An ozone generator is also effective in the treatment of water, in the elimination of odors and in helping you to achieve an increasingly ecological and sustainable crop.
