Nano and microstructural fertilizing glasses

Posted by Cracow University of TechnologyResponsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Poland

Summary of the technology

Nanometals additive for fertilizing products affects the inhibition of growth of bacteria, fungi and viruses, which may attack the plants, especially in moist environment.

New and innovative aspects

The present invention provides innovative nano and microstructural glasses with fertilizing properties.

Main advantages of its use

Nanometals additive for fertilizing products affects the inhibition of growth of bacteria, fungi and viruses, which may attack the plants, especially in moist environment.

Specifications

Supplying the root system with oxygen causes a rapid growth of capillary roots. Hydrogen peroxide formed by the hydrolysis reaction of metal peroxide is decomposed to highly reactive oxygen and water. Additionally, metal peroxides disinfect the seeds, which increases the ability of their germination.
