NovaCropControl has completed an independent study on the impact of oxygen nanobubbles enriched irrigation water on growth, pathogen control and nutrient uptake in tomatoes.

In a comparative study, NovaCropControl watered plants with supersaturated oxygen using technology supplied by Moleaer, which markets their proprietary nanobubble technology worldwide. Plants watered with Moleaer's nanobubbles had more efficient nutrient uptake and water utilization, better hair root development, higher heat resistance and up to 80% lower Pythium levels, the trial found.

The study also showed that plants fed with Moleaer nanobubbles enriched water produced a 9% higher fruit weight without sacrificing nutrient content or Brix value (grams of sucrose).

Better nutrient absorption
Moleaer's patented nanobubble technology is used by more than 200 horticultural businesses, helping growers improve irrigation water quality, promote good bacteria, improve root quality, suppress pathogens and diseases, and increase nutrient uptake.

Moleaer delivers these results by sending a consistent flow of nanobubbles to the plant roots for high oxygen levels in irrigation water, drain water, or Deep Water Culture (DWC) systems. Better oxygen supply in the roots through nanobubbles improves the absorption of nutrients by the plant. The result: healthier, more resilient plants, higher yields and faster crops.

“We know that improving water quality by increasing oxygen levels is important for plant health and crop resilience. Our trial has confirmed that Moleaer's oxygen-rich nanobubbles are a very efficient method of delivering that,” says Koen van Kempen, consultant, NovaCropControl research center.

“Nanobubbles are a complex science, but this latest independent research clearly shows the value nanobubbles have to our food supply by improving water quality, without the use of chemicals, to increase plant health and resilience to environmental stress, ultimately leading to higher yields,” says Nicholas Dyner, CEO of Moleaer.
