Low Water, High Impact Flora Establishment – Fundamentals

Low Water, High Impact Flora Establishment – Fundamentals

Water retention

Soil water is particularly important in nutrient management. In addition to sustaining all life on Earth, soil water provides a pool of dissolved nutrients that are readily available for plant uptake. Therefore, it is important to maintain proper levels of soil moisture.

Soil water holding capacity is a term that all farms should know to optimize crop production. Simply defined soil water holding capacity is the amount of water that a given soil can hold for crop use.

Sandy soils have the lowest water retention.

Biodegradable Grow Cocoons 

Reusable Plant Cocoons

Various  Capillary Drill Options

 

The Biodegradable Grow Cocoons are completely environmentally friendly and left indefinitely in the soil. This growbox has several unique features, not only could you plant a tree requiring little or no irrigation you can also plant 4 additional plants, such as vegetables or fruits.

Planting shrubs or creepers gives you short term gains. This product provides an additional source for foliage. This intelligent biodegradable bucket system, made of recycled paper, provides plants with water. Creates healthy microclimates and assists root development.

Reusable Plant Cocoons used to establish plants. Once a plant is established (9 – 12 months) the box is removed and utilized again. The box is reusable up to 10 times, effectively giving you up to 10 years use from a single box. This plant cocoon is made from polypropylene.

Grow Cocoon bucket systems demonstrates 90% survival rates, and uses 99% less water compared to drip irrigation. Plant anywhere with very little knowledge needed. Proven technology with proven results.

Soils are generally made up of varying mixtures of three sizes of soil particles; sand, silt and clay, known as soil texture. Generally, water retention is inversely related to permeability.

Soil Conditioning Technology to improve Water Retention in Soil.

 

TerraCottem Soil conditioners are a proprietary mixture of more than twenty components each from different groups all assisting in the plant growth processes in a synergetic way.

The growth precursors play a very important role in the initial growth phase of the plant. They activate root cell elongation and differentiation, and promote leaf development and biomass production. In addition, roots are encouraged to grow more rapidly to depths where more water is present.

The cross-linked hydro absorbent polymers absorb and store water that is usually lost to evaporation and leaching, reducing the volume and frequency of necessary irrigation by up to 50%. This water is then kept at the disposal of the plant that accesses the stored water on demand through its root hairs, keeping the water in the root zone for a longer period of time.

The specially selected fertilizers provide balanced nutrition to the plants based upon macro and microelements.

Water Treatment

In the case of existing water sources, structure becomes a key focus. Structured Water results in better absorption rates and improves plant performance. Water is structured either with a vortex, magnetism or frequency. Our range of products to structure water includes magnetic, frequency & vortex depending on the situation.

Utilize Ozone to purify water. Ozone oxidizes pollutants and reverts back to oxygen. Ozone is regarded as an unstable gas, because it attaches to solids. This oxidation process helps break down contaminants in the water. No known bacteria or virus can survive ozone.

Bio-nutrient support

One corner stone of agriculture is soil. For thriving planting schemes you require soil fundamentals, such as bacterial life, fungi & minerals. To accommodate this intrinsic relationship we utilize 2 products which provide nutrients to support life in the soil: Mineral Complex and Bacteria.

Below is a demonstration of farming in the desert using biochar, mineral complex, structured water and bacteria.

 

Base of Operations

Integrated container systems will showcase atmospheric water generators, electricity, hydroponics, drip, internet etc. These systems will become the backbone of your greening projects. Utility tunnels could be placed around your container. We currently have the GroCube available which will upgrade in 2019.

GROCUBE – Grow Anywhere

Utilising various aspects of these technologies, individuals and organisations could effectively farm anywhere.

The application and versatility of these technologies assists households, small and large scale farming operations, desert greening operations, plantations, architects and real estate developers.

Applications

  • Plant in desert climates
  • Farm in low rainfall regions
