Blueberry trials by Kapicua achieve 18% yield increase
Updated: Sep 13, 2020
Kapicua (Chile) trailed 1 ha of blueberry (Magnifica) under nanobubble water with samples taken over 4 weeks during the months of November and December during the summer of 2019.
Plants were grown in pots with coco fibre medium, with drip irrigation received hourly at a dissolved oxygen level of 30mg/l using nanobubbles.
Increase in both berry diameter +11%, and Yield +18%.
Plant shoot length post mid-season pruning at day +49 was on average +10cm longer.
Chlorophyll accumulation was 9.5% higher than control.
Higher root density was observed (visual identification).
Nanobubble Systems Australia and New Zealand BDM, Leon Power “We are seeing similar results across a growing range of horticultural drip irrigated applications now, with increased yield, fruit size and stronger plant resilience to external heat and pathogen stresses commonly seen”.
“This is exciting for the future of the nanobubble technology. We strongly believe this will be a game changer for the horticultural sector in the future, with those that do not include a nanobubbles in their growing repertoire being left behind by the forward thinking players”.
