Disinfectant for Agriculture
Organic Disinfectant for Agriculture:
Disinfectant for Agriculture is essential to use to combat the various pests which badly affect crops and have a very serious impact on the economic output of farms. Microbial pathogens (bacteria, virus and fungi) affect the healthy growth processes of plants in many different ways. For example, it may reduce crop stand by eliminating the plants, it may reduce inputs such as light, CO2 or water, it may affect rates of metabolic and growth processes directly or they may remove or consume previously produced material. Thus pathogen control by agricultural disinfectant plays a key role in safeguarding crop productivity against competition from weeds, animal pests, pathogens and viruses.
HypoGrow® The Organic Biocide for your Plants
Pristine Water offers the eco-friendliest, safe and economical Pre and Post-Harvest Organic Biocide for your Field, Farm and Farm Animals.
Electrolyzed water (EW), also known as Hypochlorous Solution is the latest eco-friendly, organic and cost effective spray to maintain crop health. This concept that originated in Japan and is now gaining popularity in other countries. It has been shown to have significant bactericidal, virucidal and moderate fungicidal properties. HypoGrow produces the disinfectant for agriculture, that significantly reduces the need for traditional strong pesticides.
HypoGrow® – a farmer’s friend
- Disinfection of seeds
- Pre and post-harvest spray for disease control and fungal, bacterial decay
- Disinfection of irrigation water for microbial control
- Crop pests do not develop resistance unlike other chemical pesticides
- As there is no residue, it can be sprayed until harvest
- Safe on human skin and environment
Our range of On-site Hypochlorous Solution (HOCl) Generators are spearheading a revolution in safe, effective biocides for animal welfare, biosecurity, and crop protection.
Inspired by the human body’s natural defences, its products are made of the same acid produced by the body to fight viruses and bacteria, making them completely safe for people and animals.
HOCl is a naturally occurring element that can easily penetrate the cell wall and membrane. Once inside the cell, it oxidizes various components of the cell, such as the mitochondrion, which is the powerhouse of the cell. Exposure to HOCl inactivates cells of bacteria, viruses and fungi, that affect crops and farm animals.
- Effective disease control during harvest.
- Safe eco-friendly harvesting by preventing diseases.
- Sterilizes bacteria, fungi, viruses and all other microorganisms.
- Cost effective when packing farm products or inside greenhouse.
- Reduces the need for strong pesticides.
- Safe for human body and no harm when on skin
- Easy to use and less work needed.
- Instantly dissolves and leaves no residue on crops. Can be sprayed until harvest.
- Increase credibility through safe harvesting.
- Fresh and clean fruits grown through electrolyzed water.
How this Hypochlorous Solution (HOCl) Generator works
Common Salt (NaCl) is mixed with water. If the pH in the feed water is high, an appropriate pH balancer is added to reduce the pH. This system has a generator that has Titanium electrodes coated with precious metal oxides. DC current passes between the electrodes, converting the salt solution into Hypochlorous Solution or Electrolyzed Water. This is a very effective disinfectant for agriculture.
For an Irrigation volume of 100 cubic meter per acre, if 20 ppm of Hypochlorous Solution is to be applied, then 2 kgs of HOCl is used.
Hence, the required capacity will be 2 kgs per week per acre, which is 285 grams/day.
Based on your farm size and application, we can help you select the system size that is right for you. Using this system, you can make your own disinfectant for agriculture.
Experiment by Angelica Naka1, Masaya Yakubo, Kenji Nakamura and Midori Kurahashi, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan
|Results of bacterial reduction or inactivation using Acidic Electrolyzed Water and NaOCl. The experiments were repeated 5–6 times|
|Sterilized distilled water||SAEW 0.5 mg/L||NaOCl 0.5 mg/L|
|Escherichia coli||0.06 ± 0.03||>4.49 ± 0.003||1.28 ± 0.91|
|Pseudomonas aeruginosa||0.15 ± 0.11||>4.38 ± 0.005||2.31 ± 0.67|
Note: Unit: log10 CFU/mL
The above dose is suggested but the actual dose rate depends upon the condition of the crop, the weather, and the infection etc.
HypoGrow® prevention of bacteria on the crop:
Spraying a weak Hypochlorous Solution every 3 to 5 days since seeding on most of the crops like strawberry, tomato etc. prevents mildew and anthrax and showed significant decrease in fulva, spotting disease, wilt disease & eliminates bacteria.
Prevention of pathogenic fungi on plants.
A potential alternative to fungicides to control foliar disease is the use of electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water. EO water is generated by electrolysis of a dilute solution of Sodium Chloride (Salt) in an Electrolysis Chamber.
The safe biocide for hydroponics.
By adding HypoGrow to recirculating (and non-recirculating) growing systems operators observe:
- Removal and prevention of deposits and biofilms
- Reduce root borne diseases
- Improved nutrient absorption
- Reduced potential habitat for pathogens
- Optimization of root zone performance models
