Today people are suffering from the significant disease that results in death due to unhygienic water. Even crops are damaged because of this contaminated water.
So how can we prevent crops from damage and individuals from disease?
You can pick greenhouse water sterilization methods. To know about other sterilization methods carry on reading this article.
Type the query ‘greenhouse automation systems‘ to find the best systems for your greenhouse.
Oxidizing agents: There are a lot of oxidants like bleach, chlorine, bromine, ozone that reacts against algae, bacteria, peat, and plant debris. Water becomes purified with these oxidizing agents and you can easily use the water.
Ultraviolet radiation: It is very much effective means to kill germs and purify the water as it doesn’t use any harmful chemical like chlorine. It requires a very little amount of energy and low maintenance.
Copper ionization: it’s a disinfecting process which disperses positively charged copper ions to the water system and these ions are very much toxic to the harmful germs, plants or pathogens. So once you use this method you need to take care of water at a level which causes phototoxicity.
Heat treatment: It is another technique to treat against disinfecting water, it’s energy intensive.
Also, it is very much costly for purifying a massive amount of water. Temperature 203F is enough to kill most pathogens and bacteria present in the water.
Slow sand filtration: It is not a high technology for disinfecting water and this approach is mostly used in the nursery to kill Phytophthora.
Besides this, if you’re interested in knowing about other type techniques for greenhouse water sterilization then explore the online websites.
The above-mentioned approaches are effective for sterilizing irrigation water for greenhouse crops too. You can also use these methods for rainwater and wastewater and recycle them. After that this water gets not only safe for farming but also for family’s works.
