When it comes to taking maximum care of a crop, depending on what we are planting, it is necessary to use a greenhouse. In these cases, the crops can benefit from ozone, solving points that are fundamental in an agricultural plant.
Fumigation and fertilization without risks can invigorate crops, improve and increase their productivity, while they reinforce and become more resistant to pests and diseases. That’s why ozone is so effective in these cases.
In addition to the already proven results when fertilizing and fumigating, ozone is a completely effective solution, free of risk, when it comes to sanitising, disinfecting and deodorising. In fact, it lacks side effects.
Ozone in agriculture
This substance that is created from ozone must face many challenges to solve the issues that beset anyone who wants to launch an ecological agriculture project in greenhouses. On one hand, we find ourselves coping with the same issues as in an open field crop, although the needs that this type of crop poses to us add up.
Its versatility means that, with the use of ozone, all are advantages. One of them focuses on disease control. The case is that a crop that develops under a plastic protection seems to be already safe against many diseases, because it grows in the middle of a protected habitat, as a microclimate, but that is the same cause that can promote certain deseases.
When a crop is placed under favorable environmental conditions it also helps the proliferation of pests, such as viruses, bacteria and, of course, mold. In this sense, the ozone generating technology can be of great help both thanks to applying it to the crop, as well as avoiding the use of traditional chemical products.
For that reason, using an ozone machine in greenhouses, with your ecological agriculture project, does not stop being a more intensive form of agriculture. With the objective of maximizing yield, ozone treatments are ideal to achieve a more productive crop. Increasing productivity is another great challenge that the technology responsible for the generation of ozone can perform successfully.
The production will be much better preserved after being processed by ozone, stored in warehouses or refrigerators, including disinfection with ozone in the refrigeration transport phase. At a sanitary-hygienic level and also through the control of the maturation process, with an ozone generator the production of ethylene is controlled, since it is responsible for it.
