Expert has been involved with UV-Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide (Hydro-Peroxzone) in Agricultural, Horticultural and Forestry Nursery irrigation waters for over 12 years. He is an Ozone Water Consultant and who has a formal agricultural qualification with hands-on knowledge of NFT Hydroponic Gully Systems and Greenhouse Tomato production.
Since 2009, he has been involved with controlling the Fusarium fungus that is plagueing the forestry industry by using the technology as described above.
A feature of this process is that NO CHEMICALS are used whatsoever and plant growth is phenominal.
A very sought after symbiotic root fungus called Mycorrhiza, which the forestry industry cannot get to grow when chlorine is used as a water sterilent, grows prolifically when the Hydro-Peroxzone process is used.
The control mechanism for this process is measured scientifically with the use of an ORP meter which indicates the quality of applied water.
His field of consultancy reaches across to all aspects of water use through irrigation from open field farmers to golf courses.
In our modern day search for alternative techniques to grow our food with, this proven Hydro-Peroxzone method will out-compete any chemical use.
It is very Eco-friendly and has been approved by many regulatory bodies such as FDA, USDA, EU, GAP, Organic, etc.
Legislation is currently being implemented in the EU and the USA where farmers will not be allowed to grow our food in poor quality water anymore such as happened with the spinach poisoning in California, and they cannot rely on chlorine or any other chemicals to do what UV-Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide can do, NATURALLY !
They are both very natural products which our Sun creates for us each day sothat our environment is kept clean of pollutants.
This technology is unpatentable, and is readilly available to anyone who wishes to use it in place of chemicals in our food production.
