Vegetable Ozone Therapy Crops Sanitized Naturally from Seed to Feed

Project description

Ozone treatment to save crops

Plant pests and diseases pose a serious threat to crops and can result in huge economic losses for farmers. Reasons are wide ranging – from climate change and agricultural intensification. These contribute to the vulnerability of crops. Current methods to fight crop pests and diseases can be environmentally harmful while bio-pesticides have limited effect. The EU-funded OXIR project aims to upgrade an innovative technology based on the anti-pathogen action of ozone (O3). The tool sprays aqueous ozone to greenhouse crops. The result is effective disease control and sanitation that permits EU farmers to save considerable amounts of money. This solution can successfully fight fungi, bacteria and viruses. Furthermore, it is cost-effective, environmentally sustainable and its application is fast.
