Fruit and Vegetable Safety: Optimal Management of Irrigation Water
The water analyzed in irrigation basins of Quebec farms does not always meet the standards for maximum coliform concentrations. When water comes into contact with the harvested product, this becomes a major health issue.
Aeration has been shown to be an effective solution to reduce the bacteriological count of your irrigation water. We have different aeration solutions. Whether it’s a system with a linear diffuser or a diffusion station, it will fit your installations perfectly. We even have solar powered systems if your electricity is non-existent or too far away.
It is possible to buy a complete system as a kit, or a customized system. Contact us for a quote!
