Plant viruses can eliminate crops worth €100,000 in little over 2 hours. Protect your crops with a Chlorine Dioxide generator.
Whether it is hydroponic flowers or potatoes grown in an open field, poor quality water has the potential to decimate crop yields. Scotmas systems provide the solution.
Plant viruses and molds have the potential to devastate intensively grown hydroponic crops within a matter of hours. The hydroponic system can serve to distribute the pathogen easily throughout the growing shed, making isolation or treatment almost impossible.
Likewise, the use of untreated river water for the irrigation of crops such as potato has the potential to introduce pathogens such as Pythium and Phytophthora which can result in devastating outbreaks of rot.
In both cases, Scotmas offer low cost and highly effective treatments using automatic chlorine dioxide dosing systems. By effectively dosing the water with low levels of this drinking water approved biocide, biological loading of the water can be minimised, and the spread of disease reduced.
For immediate post harvest treatment, Scotmas products have the potential to significantly reduce spoilage and extend shelf life without the use of high levels of toxic biocides such as chlorine that can lead to tainting of products and associated regulatory issues.
Scotmas have undertaken challenging horticultural projects to improve crop yields around the world in a variety of scenarios. Contact us today to discuss how we can help.
