General description of water fertilization and disinfection with Cu2+ ions

Copper fertilization and electromagnetic treatment of water
for irrigation and fertilization of crop plants under cover and in open fields
The Aqua-Hort system gives the possibility of controlled, electrolytic fertilization of crops with copper ions as a micronutrient fertilizer. Research at the Aarslev State Research Station in Denmark contributed to the emergence, over 18 years ago, of the idea of ​​using copper ions to disinfect water as an alternative to disinfection with other methods such as, e.g. UV, thermal or chemical method.
The copper ions produced in the Aqua-Hort system are positively charged, which makes them easily abolished with negatively charged molecules such as spores and organic substances. This positive effect is used to significantly reduce the amount of fungal spores, bacteria and algae. In addition, electromagnetic processing of flowing water in the Aqua-Hort device, to which copper ions have been added, increases their efficiency in combating pathogens.
Danish laboratory tests and the results of using the Aqua-Hort system in the world confirm that the controlled level of copper ions in water significantly prevents attacks of fungi, especially from the Pythium and Phytopthora groups. As is known, these two pathogens are very harmful to agricultural and horticultural crops. Both fungi form zoospores that spread in watery environments. Laboratory tests show that zoospores are killed immediately after exposure to water treated with copper ions by the Aqua-Hort system. Bacteria Xanthomonas, Agrobacterium, Ralstonia, Erwinia and Clavibacter are also killed after contact with copper ions dispensed within 2 to 4 hours. By using copper ions disinfection using the Aqua-Hort system, the growth of algae can be almost completely eliminated in the external water reservoir.
Controlled dosing of copper ions in the past has been difficult because copper ions are easily bound to compounds before they start to work. Thanks to the patented Aqua-Hort system at the time of watering, an adjustable, durable supply of copper ions to the flowing water is achieved. The released quantity of copper ions is in the fertilizer standards.
The standard Aqua-Hort system consists of a control box, an electromagnetic tube and 4 sets of 2 copper electrodes, a total of 8 electrodes placed in 4 pipelines from which copper ions are released into the flowing water. Polarity switching ensures that both electrode rods are used in a uniform manner. The flowmeter is also part of the Aqua-Hort system, which automatically adjusts the ions dosage to the changes of the water flowing through the device. Copper ion dosing is carried out while watering the crops. You can also use the Aqua-Hort system for spraying crops with clean water with copper ions, which significantly reduces the costs of plant protection.

The operation of the Aqua-Hort system causes, i.a.:
  • Limiting the number of spores of fungi, bacteria and algae
  • Elimination of fungi infection from the Pythium and Phytopthora groups
  • Elimination of bacteria: Xanthomonas, Agrobacterium Ralstonia, Erwinia and Clavibacter
  • Elimination of algae in open water reservoirs
  • Reduction of plant protection costs in crops under cover
  • Strengthening the root system and improving the health of the cultivated plants
