After the first cold raindrop falls, thousands of hectares of crops suffer grave consequences, causing expensive economic losses in agricultural fields.
It’s important having your crop insured before a meteorologic situation of this magnitude arrives, and unfortunately, they tend to happen quite often during the season.
After the season is over, it’s essential to act as soon as possible and heal the soil to avoid radicular asphyxiation, fungus growth, and other diseases. That’s why it’s necessary to take immediate and effective rescue treatments.
The lack of oxygen in the soil alters the radicular development because it deprives the roots of its respiration needs, making the plant burn its reserves and causing an early death if the lack of oxygen is prolonged.
In floodable soils where the roots remain in very humid conditions and without enough oxygen for long periods, OXIFORT can directly provide that.
OXIFORT is a source of oxygen that, when distributed on the soil, within reach of the plant’s radicular, provides notable benefits.
OXIFORT comes in a water-soluble solid form, slowly releasing oxygen.
Its effects keep the soil well oxygenated, with therapeutic actions against the soil’s anaerobic fungus, other microorganisms, and algae. OXIFORT disinfects the soil, stopping the proliferation of nocive pathogens.
The oxygen facilitates nitrification, resulting in improved soil fertility, something essential for the current situation, it also improves its physical structure, resulting in better oxygenation for the roots and improved water flow.
Also, thanks to its special characteristics, OXIFORT can be applied directly over the soil and it can also be dissolved in the irrigation system.
The Department of Chemistry and Pedology of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), published an essay to compare and value the efficiency of OXIFORT when it comes to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), commonly known just as peroxide
The results have shown that to try to balance the effect obtained with OXIFORT in the liberation of oxygen, the concentration of (H2O2) should be increased up to 25 times.
The effects of the analyzed solutions while using OXIFORT are more relevant, providing a higher quantity of oxygen in the water. The H2O + OXIFORT reaction is progressive and has a longer duration, around 4 days, showing its max value on the second/third day. On the fifth day, it stabilizes, reaching its starting value.
