80% of plant disease orgininate in the water source. Free-floating Planktonic pathogens clump together to form highly virulent Biofilms, so a spotlessly clean irrgation system is the first step towards good plant health.
Shock treatment is used to clean the system of existing biofilms and micro-organisms in a two step protocol.
Step 1: Flood irrgation system with a 1:10 dilution of Aquaza - 3% active H2O2 - for 12 hours and drain through pipe outlet.
Step 2: Flood irrigation system with a 1:30 dilution of Aquaza - 1% active H2O2 - for 12 hours and drain out through drippers.
Once the irrigation system is clean, a minimum constant dose of 50ml Aquaza per 1000 L water will not only prevent Biofilm re-growth, but brings many added benefits as well, please read more below:
Biofilm build-up has many negative effects, even before disease formation occurs. Biofilm free irrigation systems deliver higher water quality at an increased flow rate of both water and plant nutrients.
trace H2O2 to your plants
maintains an aerobic root environment and growing medium which helps
+ trace H2O2 is a growth signaller for your plants, resulting in increased vegetative and reproductive growth
+ trace H2O2 not only increases flowering and fruiting, but healthier plants equal healthier harvests with a longer shelf life
50 ml - 300 ml Aquaza per 1000 L irrigation water provides 17 ppm - 100 ppm of trace Hydrogen peroxide to prevent Biofilm re-growth and Oxygenate your substrate and plants
Mung Beans - Control at LEFT grown with plain water,
Test at RIGHT grown with 1 ml Aquaza per 20 L water
delivering 17ppm active Hydrogen peroxide shows
the positive effect of Oxygen on plant growth
Dissolved Oxygen is limited by water Temperature.
Aquaza supplements Dissolved Oxygen
regardless of Temp and prevents wilting.
A once weekly combination of Root Drench
and Foliar Spray with a solution of
400ppm active Aquaza H2O2 has been
tested and proven to combat:
+ Strawberry Powdery Mildew
+ Lettuce sclerotina Rot
+ Strawberry Fusarium
+ Korean Melon Powdery Mildew
+ Cucumber Powdery Mildew
