Horticulture plays an integral role in the overall health and virtually for every person on the planet. There is an increasing urgency to find ways to feed the many hundreds of millions of people and animals around the world and it is here that we expect massive results in addressing this globally significant challenge.
Healthier plants will also assist in an increased pollination potential and the ability for more fruit setting on the plant. Further benefits will include improved disease resistance by controlling and mitigating oxidative stress, as well as improving heat and frost resistance associated with extreme or random weather events – which may indeed save the seasons harvest. By improving the biological gas content in the soil we will encourage biodiversity back into the soil and encourage plant life and root growth, bringing even more life back into the soil.
Healthier fruit at harvest will keep longer post-harvest (being less oxidative). This allows for those extra couple of days of looking good on the shelf at the market before it starts to discolour which causes a price reduction or waste.
